Valentines Everywhere...

For me it is that time of year when there are little hearts all over my desk.  It seems no matter how I try to keep them all gathered together they always seem to scatter to the four corners and try to get into my other projects.  My card this morning is using Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour Die and the center cut of the die is a solid heart.  It will go into the pile of other hearts I have lying about. Probably the next thing I do will be to run this through my Grand Calibur with an embossing folder and try to get it to stay with the other hearts on my desk.  At some point, I will use these extra hearts to make a card and then they can strut their stuff!


I used the border cut of a Sue Wilson die (CED 4410 Pyxis) to cut out the pretty scallop and used an embossing folder that I have had so long I didn't write down the names back then.  So sorry!  Then I used the pretty frilly heart from Heartfelt and a pretty gingham bow and the ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I tied the bow with my Bow-It-All from Zutter cause I can't tie a bow for nothing by hand!

Our weather has been pretty terrible the last few days like most everyone on the Eastern side of the US.  Living where I do we only got the tail end of the storm but received a combined 8-9 inches of snow and brutal cold temps.  Yesterday the sun popped out and the temps warmed and I actually saw green grass!  I totally enjoyed the snow, but then being retired I got my bread and milk early and didn't have to get out in the weather!  Everyone have a wonderful day and remember to "Breathe"!

Oh, what a pretty lacy heart that is! Love the embossed scalloped border, too. I have that embossing folder and it's always been one of my favorites. It's so cute the way you ran the ribbon across your card and tied it in the center of the heart. I should be working on Valentines. Glad you weathered the storm okay!

Hello my friend ... hope you're staying warm! We dodged that storm here in Ohio thankfully! I'm still sitting at the hospital with mom and trying to stay on top of my DT work. Your card brought an immediate smile to my face when it popped up in my email. BEAUTIFULLY designed ...
Hugs and Happy Day
