Be Mine Valentine

Hi my crafty friends, hope all is well in your neck of the woods.  We lucked out and didn't get the storm that hit the along the East Coast, just got some rain and a little bit of snow unlike the feet of snow they got in NY and Boston areas.  Thank God! I'm not against snow, just dont' want any, I'm ready for Spring. lol Of course that's not coming for a while yet so might as well not complain, right?!

 There are a couple of challenges going on right now and I thought that I would enter them. The first one is at Cardz TV and the challenge is "Kidz Kardz challenge 24" to make 3 3x3 cards and the second challenge is over at My Creative Time for Me and the challenge there is to use embossing, either dry or wet embossing.  So here are my cards that I'm entering this these 2 challenges. All products used on these little 3x3 cards are from My Creative Time, dies and stamps. I also made little belly bands to keep my cards closed and to put my die cuts on.


On these little 3x3 cards I used kraft card stock with the 3x3 Trifold Card die, Chocolate Greetings, Lots of Love, and Beary Special Thoughts stamp set. I also used real tin foil on my Hershey Kiss, I just ran it through my Cuttlebug with the die! Cool huh?! Now I wish I could take credit for that idea myself but sadly I can't. It was one of MCT designers that did this and I thought it was too clever!!

On these little white cards I used the 3x3 Trifold Card die, Stitched Scallop Heart Die set, and the Lots of Love stamp set.


I hope you enjoyed my little sweet Valentine cards, can you believe that I didn't use my Cricut?!  See what you can come up with and make your grandchildren, children and hubby or someone special a sweet Valentine!  Have a wonderful weekend!!

Love, love, love your sweet cards, Brenda, don't you just love those kiss and label dies. I almost lost mine the other day after using it. I searched my little place for three days. As a last resort I decided to go piece by piece through my garbage can before taking the trash out. I found it about 2/3 of the way down. Thank goodness, I was having fits over it. I really like how the foil turned out. Thanks for playing along at Cardz TV.
