Valentine Hugs!!

It's coming up on my favorite time of year - Valentine's Day - a day when I can let the people I love know I'm thinking of them.  I've been missing my mojo the last few weeks, but I think it may be returning, as this first card generated 2 others!

Valentine Hugs

supplies: white cardstock, Concord & 9th Layers of Love dies, Winnie & Walter "hugs" from Big, Bold Friends cutaways, worn lipstick and candied apple distress inks, a green and pink marker, adhesive foam squares

I used the same framing die for my 2nd card today, trimming it away around the outer edges:

Sending Hugs

supplies: kraft, white and green cardstock, Doodlebug Gingham dp, Layers of Love, Fancy Blossoms, Folk Art Florals (leaves), All Occasion sentiment, Nuvo Carnation Pink gloss drop

And here's the fancy work from the above card used as a  frame for another die, this one from Simon:

Hearts Hugs and Flowers

supplies: white cardstock, Doodlebug Gingham dp, Layers of Love, Simon's Heart of Roses and Painted Hugs dies, a retired Sizzix flowers embossing folder, stamped "sending" from Simon's Lila's Heart, pieces of adhesive foam squares

Stay tuned - hopefully there are more to come!  Thanks for visiting today.
