I know! Valentines Day is over for some time now!

I would have to say I am stuck on Love! LOL!
Actually this first card is my 3rd and final card for a Stair Step Swap on StampersUnite! The theme was not for Valentines day specifically, but once I got started, I figured I might as well do Valentines for all 3! Can you tell that I really have a hard time making duplicate cards, exactly the same! I know I can do it, but it is not my style to repeat things over and over. If you look at previous posts, all 3 cards are different. This also depended on what I have to work with. The only stamp used on this one is "For Love" from "Annette Allen Watkins". I don't know if they are still in business or have a web site! If you have any information on it, could you let me know.
I used a Nestibilities scallope oval an used some body art bling around the scallops! This was quite a job adhering each tiny little stone! I have fingernails and the stones kept crawling under my nails. Shows how coordinated I am, huh! This card will be on its way to Canada tomorrow with some goodies with it! I don't think she checks my blog and if she does, she will just see her card ahead of time! LOL! I hope you like it and will comment on what you think about it. I have really been trying to be more blingy. Did I make it?

The card below is going to Kim a Clearly Inspired! I told her I would send her some instructions that I have on using Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Well, as usual I am late!
Anyway, the card is a Spring card that I found on Dawn Griffith's Stampin Studio! If you click on the link, it will take you directly to her video to make this card. I think this is such a fabulous, easy, fun card to make! Hope you like it!

Well, this should be the end of the Valentines cards that I create for the year! I am putting my box with my stash of heart goodies away for awhile! Whew! I bet you are getting sick of them! I know I had enough and will start on some other stuff today to share! Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

Never too late to learn a new technique. I just found your blog from your win at Crafting Haven. Congratulations, I wanted that! lol. Hello from Texas. I like your blog and I shall return soon. Your cards are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

I decided that I really liked your blog and the Card Organizer Video at the bottom was something I felt my readers would enjoy, so you inspired today's post. Check it out!


Love all your valentine's cards!

What size is the bottom card when it's folded up? I made one but it ended up an odd size that wouldn't fit in any of my envelopes.

Gorgeous Lori!! The red is sumptious and is perfectly lovely on both cards.
