Valentine’s cards

Here are a few more cards I made for my kiddos for Valentine’s day.  I love Valentine’s Day and I love making it special for my family.  They have been trying to learn my secrets about what I have planned for that day for a little while now.  I love keeping them in suspense.  We are celebrating on Monday since we have the day off from school and Sundays are such busy days for us.  So, what do you do with your family for Valentine’s?  Do you do anything special or have any special traditions?

The image on this card is from The Angel Company.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The patterned paper is from Sizzix that I have had for a very long time.  The sentiment is from Studio G. 


The image on this card is from Stampin Up’s Nice & Easy Notes set.  I also colored it with Copic markers.  The sentiment is also from Studio G.  The paper is some that I have had forever and I don’t know the manufacturer.  When I first started buying patterned paper I would store it by color and not by manufacturer.  Now I have all this paper that I have no idea who made it, but I am having fun using my stash of supplies.  I haven’t bought any new craft supplies in 2010, so I am doing really well with my goal.  I haven’t even walked into a craft store (if I did it would all be over.)  I am not sure how much longer I can hold out though.  I am seeing some really great new punches on some blogs.  That would definitely be my weakness. 

Have a great weekend!

These cards are so cheerful and obviously come straight from your heart.

My hubby and I always exchange love letters on Valentine's Day and have an "indoor picnic" in the living room with a rental movie. :)

These are both great cards. I love the little mouse one and the paper you chose to go with it as well.

You're a great mom to make Valentin's day so special!!! I'm sorry to say my DH is on a trip so I'm gonna celebrate with my own cake. He did give me some flowers before he left...but I forgot to give him his Valentine...I'm so bad!

Karen, your cards are adorable! The primary colors on your first card really standout! I love the DP on the second card that looks like cork board! The mouse is adorable!

They are so cute, I love the papers you chose. good for you using your stash. I haven't been as strong as you, but I am doing much better on the craft spending. I am using a lot more of what I already have on hand and it does feel good.
