Happy Valentine's Day!!



This is my Valentine...I did this one for me!  I cut a heart out of a cereal box and painted the back side in cream and the front in pink, then a layer of crackle paint, then a layer of cream and when it cracked the pink was showing through.  I used Ranger Distress Inks to distress the edges and I went over some of the crackle to add more pink to the heart.  Next I added the doily and left one side of the doily open so I could insert my tag inside.  The next step was to hot glue the edging all around the heart.  Then I cut a piece of card stock using the new Marianne (Anja) die and made my tag.  A couple of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts edged in the same shade of pink distressed ink and a couple of skeleton leaves and it is all mine!  Most everything I do is for someone else, but this time, I decided I wanted to keep it.  I plan to make a wall hanging out of it and display it in my craft room.

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and that your sweetie is good to you!

Be sure and come back tomorrow as it will once again be a Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I have another card to share with you!

Such a Lovely Valentine for yourself!!
We so often forget about ourselves when we do all the pretty thing for everyone.. I know I'm guilty of that. But after seeing your beautiful creation for yourself I think I'll have to remember to do the same for something for me too!!
Love your ideas and work Glenda!!

It's late, had a busy day traveling for med appts. But some lovely weather after our snowfall of 3 inches. Your "For You" treasure is so pretty. Love the pink cord edge and adorable tag inside.
Spent the evening with family and some great homemade goodies. Mom and Dad so much enjoy all of us stopping by. And "Valentines Day" is for sharing love with someone!!!!
