My Sweet Valentine

Hello and Happy Friday!!!

It is that time of year again to start making Valentine's Day cards. I miss making cute hand crafted valentines for my boys to bring to school to pass out to their classmates. Now that I have a sophomore in high school and one in college those days are definitely over.

Today I am posting a card that I made for the Flashback Newsletter over at Many acrylic cling stamps by D' Amour Allure are 50% off while supplies last. I used this oh so sweet image called My Sweet Valentine. What a precious couple! Don't forget to hop on over to the M5D website and choose your favorites during this great sale!

I used some Christmas money that I received to treat myself to a BIG order of Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.  I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what they add to my creations!  If you have not used them you really must try them as soon as possible!  =)

Thanks so much for looking today and enjoy your weekend!!!
