Cards from the Heart Card Drive

 

I LOve making Valentines ... LOVE it!  So happy to find a wonderful place to send all those extras I make each year ... Winter Sims, thank you!

I've finished the last little card today, so I can get them all packaged, and sent out this weekend. 

Here are a few, made just for the occasion:

SSS Roses for You; Distress Inks; Delicata Gold #sss; MFT Wonky stitched rectangle - embossed.
 
Inside sentiment:
"Sending love from here to there!"
 

What better way to spread a little kindness?

Inside sentiment:
"Some of that kindness is bound to float right back to you!
especially on Valentine's Day!"
#heroarts

#PTI Joy die and stamps;  Paper Studios embossing folder
 
Inside sentiment:
"And LOve! Like peanut butter, and jelly:
a nice thick layer of it is enclosed for you! 
Happy Valentine's Day!"

Hope you spread a little Love, Kindness, and Joy  around to others today ... you certainly bring so much to my life ... thanks always!

=]  Michele

Lovely set of Valentines, and what a great card drive! The first one has my heart--what a great idea to emboss those wonky rectangles! Must try that. :)

Soooo pretty! The first is my FAVE but they are all great -- so good of you to donate to such a worthy cause!

Barb said...

Beautiful cards, Michele! Can't pick a fave - love each one!

Oh what fabulous Valentines!!! I LOVE the wonky frame on the first one. I NEED that die but am on a buying freeze right now. The second one is simply FABULOUS. I especially like the inside. Did you make the sentiment inside up yourself? I LOVE it. However, the third card is my FAVORITE!! I love that you used a more "Christmas" type stamp for a Valentine. Such a great way to stretch your supplies!!!
