Love is in the air!

Update:  The Valentine’s card was chosen as a Goddess pick at Stampin’ Royalty and an Inkspirations winner for the week!  Thanks to both for the complement!

We have been snowed in and what better to work on than Valentine’s Day cards??  Of course, the snow has really gotten in the way of my stamping.  My 4 and 6 year old sons have only so much tolerance for Mommy’s projects before it is time to go sledding!!  Ok, even I feel the need to go sledding.  After all, if we are going to have record snows I want to take advantage of the opportunities for fun!  Today, though, I really needed to finish my card for my dear husband.  While I have made quite a few Valentine’s cards this year, I always feel bad if he doesn’t get his own unique card.  He certainly deserves it!! I found this layout from Makeesha at Inkspirations and knew it would be perfect!

 Then I used the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge:  Act 16 which were Real Red, Very Vanilla and Kraft.  I just received my new Satin Ribbon this week and finally got to use it.  It is so beautiful…I might have to order it in all the colors!!  The hearts are from the I {Heart} Hearts set from the Occasions Mini.  Just a reminder that $2 from every one of those sets sold until Feb 28th goes to the American Red Cross in support of the Haiti earthquake victims.  I really like that the Kraft on this card gives it a more masculine feel!  Because this card follows a Love/Valentines theme, it also qualifies for the Stampin’ Royalty Challenge #6!  Their challenges are wonderful…make sure you check out the cards their Goddesses made this week!

Earlier this week, I was supposed to work with a 2nd Grade class from my son’s school (he is in 1st Grade) to make cards for their parents.  Since school is apparently cancelled until the spring thaw, the teacher came over to help me make the cards for her kids (thanks Shelly!).  This project turned out so cute that I just had to post it.  It is another project with the I {Heart} Hearts set and the Hugs Sending Love Notes from the mini.  I am so sad that the kids didn’t get to do the project but I know the parents will love them when they finally get them.  I put another Whisper White sheet on the back where the kids can sign them.  Thanks for stopping by!  I value your comments…have a great day!

Your card is beautiful. It looks very elegant and the colours works so well together, I {Heart} Heart is a really lovely set. I also think it is very sweet that you made cards with the Grade 2 teacher. I’m sure that all the parents will love the cards and appreciate all the work that both you and Shelly put in, since they look stunning.
