A few Valentine Cards

I have not been in the scraping or card making mood since Christmas. December was a very busy month with us finally selling our other house, going to Texas for the Holiday, and on top of it all I had the flu for two weeks. I am so thankful for my monthly crop that I attend. This really got me motivated to get some cards made. This month we had a card challenge and the only colors we were allowed to use were red, pink, and white. The good thing was our challenge project was due by January 26th, which made me get busy to meet the deadline! If you are even one day late, you are banned from participating in any further challenges for the next six months. So I made a mess of my scrapbook room (like it ever gets clean!) and made three cards. Once I had turned in my cards, I then made another card with no rescrictions and I think I like it most of all. Now I just need a little more inspiration to get around five more made and then I'll be done!

 
       Love using my Cuttlebug embossing folders

 I love using these stick pins. I bought every color my ebayer was selling. The flower was fun and quick to make too!


 This flower was pretty simple too
 Least favorite card

 My most favorte I think. I am really loving adding lace and ribbons to my cards!
 I love pearls more than diamongs.
I just love Stampin Up's wide ribbons. Found this in their clearance isle, which makes it all the sweeter!
