Valentine's Day Cards

This post took me long enough, doncha think? Geez.  So I had a class last Saturday and we made Valentine's Day cards.  The idea for these cards came from Andrea Walford - a Canadian Stampin' Up demonstrator who offers workshops and classes where she has worked out every single detail....cost, supplies, the whole gambit...it's very handy.  I'll sometimes do a variation if I don't particulaly like every card design--but when I'm rushing to get my monthly class together, I sometimes like that all the details are worked out for me.  So here are a few of them:

These cards use the Happy Heart stamp set from Stampin' Up. I used a Pretty in Pink epoxy brad. Colors are Pretty in Pink and Ruby Red.
Supplies: Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Dot embossing folder, corduroy button, scallop edge punch, corner rounder

Here's a variation on this card using the Pinking Hearts border punch and a filigree brad instead.

Still haven't decided on what Valentine goody I'm going to stamp for my co-workers...or my kiddos for that matter.  We have a HUGE surprise for them for Valentine's Day--I'll be sure to blog about it next weekend.  SO FUN!!!

35 days until I leave for the UK!!! :)

She deserves her own post!!!

Today is my friend Lisa's birthday--you may know her as @papergrace on Twitter.  For her birfday she is giving away BLOG CANDY!!! You can see the details in her post at Papergrace Designs which I think is soooo generous because all I can think about on MY birthday is what pressies I'm getting.  Just kidding, I'm not THAT selfish. Not really. :)
