Valentines...

Another snow day for me today.  So I've been making Valentine's cards.
First, I made this card for Embellish Magazine's current colour challenge: pink, red and black with hearts. Yum.  I wanted to keep it really simple, and draw the eye to the heart.


Supplies: Notecards - Hero Arts; Chipboard - GCD Studios; Die Cut and Button - Papermania; Punch - X-Cut; Glitter - Doodlebug.
To make the heart, I first stitched around the heart shape onto the Notecard, then I added Glossy Accents and glitter to the die cut heart.  I layered it up with a punched heart and a heart shaped button. I added everything with pop dots.
And secondly, I made a card using this GORGEOUS new digikit from 2Peas, Winter Love Notes.  How cute are these little birds???

Supplies: click HERE.
So happy Wednesday everyone.  Have a great day wherever you are.
P.S. - if you haven't seen my new challenge yet, check it out HERE.
