Hearts & Sparkles!

 
Evening everyone!

Hope you are having a nice Saturday.  I am bogged down with so many Valentine card orders, that I started making cards that I wasn't liking...so I took a step back from the orders and decided to make the kind of valentines card that I would like.  

I have also finally mastered how to make those bulky envelopes for cards that have embellishments on them.  I much prefer making these than making boxes!!  I am working my way through making templates for all the sized cards that I have.



I have never made a heart shaped easel card before and was quite surprised at how easy it was and trust me, if I can do it, ANYONE can do it!

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations #52 - Valentines/Love
Pile It On #5 - Punch It
Paper Sundaes #54 - Valentines
Bunny Zoes #8 - Love is in the Air
Die Cut Dreams #82 - Lots of Hearts & No Sentiment - LOL I hope I have done enough hearts...!!
