Will you be my Valentine? :)

Hi everyone :)


Thanks for all the love on my posts of me using up my scrappy stash :) One thing we all have to remember -- we all scrapbook for different reasons ... but the one MAIN reason I always hear is "I scrapbook to leave my family a legacy" -- so in 50 years when my grandkids are looking at my scrapbook pages -- guess what??? All of our papers, embellishments etc are going to be OLD!! :) So use it up my friends -- it isn't going to be doing us any good sitting in a drawer waiting to be used :)




I wanted to share some more Valentine cards I made for Winter's "Cards from the Heart Card Drive" :)



I used some Authentique papers on the Valentine Cards :)









I also wanted to share some cards I made for a co-worker :) Her daughter and her BFF are moving to NYC next month and she wanted so cards to give them before they left :)  I used Bo Bunny's Apple Cider collection on these cards :)



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
