As for Valentine's... I am mailing my sweet Sis-in-law her card so I decided to make my nieces and nephew cards too!  They are blessed with 4 amazing children and I love them each so much!  Now on to some Valentine fun... these cards came together quick and easy ... some washi tape, ribbon, glue and imagination brought it all together!
 So I punched holes to sew on these cards... and as you can see... there is faux stitching but not actual thread there because I punched to close to the card edge and the yarn I used was a little think making the holes a little bigger... maybe I could have sewn on them with thinner thread but this is supposed to be fun NOT tedious... so off with my markers I went... using by Sakura gel pens I used a different color on each card!

First is Jared's... he is the oldest

 I added black ribbon to his and this was in the kit I got these in.  It looks heavy and manly so I thought his card was perfect for it!

Next is Madison's card... and this is the card I will feature on ABC cards... I made the hearts with....
 washi tape!  Yep, I laid it on the side of the sewn on paper I wanted to throw away... about 4 strips in a square gave me more than enough to punch out these floating hearts... and here is the inside of this one!
 Next is Hayley's card... she is a huge ball of energy in a cute little body... so I put hers on a action wobble by CTMH!  It is way bouncier than my homemade version and quite economical when I was ordering things anyway... SCORE!  The heart with the arrow through it is a heart Pammy made for me to use when we had our Valentiney craft day... I wrote Hayley's name on it with my Zig marker and whallahh!  A fun interactive Valentine..
 And finally little Delaney is so sweet... so I told her on the outside...
 and the inside too!
Hope you enjoyed this Valentine smorgasboard...

Amy email me with your info here.

Blessings!
