Valentine's Day cards

Happy Valentine's day!

As I mentioned yesterday, today I'm going to show you the cards that Steve and I made for each other.  Years ago I bought a LOT of paper, stamps, and embellishments for scrapbooking and card making, and it all has come in handy.  I don't think I've purchased a card in almost 10 years.  I highly recommend making your own cards - it doesn't have to be fancy to be heartfelt.

Case in point - my card to Steve:

I wanted to make it a little fancier, but I liked the simplicity of this one.  The "i love you" is a stamp.  I wish my handwriting was that neat.  The paper is more of the Japanese paper I mentioned in the romantic watch part necklace post from a few days ago.

Steve's card for me was a lot fancier:

He used a corner punch on all the corners, some ribbon, a stamp, and a folding heart punch.  He even embellished the inside of the card:

You can see how sappy we are with each other.  :)  The heart in the lower right is a chipboard embellishment that I had forgotten I had.  I need to go looking through my stash more often!

Steve brought home flowers for me last night, and I'd like to share them with you:

They're so pretty and smell so good!  Only one leaf has been cat-chewed so far, which I see as a good sign.

I know I usually do reviews on Friday.  I did a mini-review yesterday about Christi Friesen.  Since it's Valentine's Day, it would be logical to review my husband, but I did that in October.  Next week I'll have more time to review something.

I hope you have a good day today, whether you're with someone or not.  Thanks for sharing part of your day with me!
