I'm a Christian wife and stay-at-home mommy to four beautiful and amazing children. I love all things CREATIVE - card making, digital design, home dec, scrapbooking, sewing - you name it, I dabble in it! I am also an independent consultant for Close To My Heart. Thanks for stopping by and please come again... God bless!
Today I decided to make a card that's not your typical Valentine's Day card in that it's not all shades of pink and full of hearts. Instead, I used a Sorbet card base measuring 4 1/4" x 5" that I scored randomly, a Champagne mat measuring 3 1/4" square, Claire Bulk B&T Duos (floral) measuring 3" x 2 7/8", Claire Bulk B&T Duos (pattern) measuring 2 3/4" x 3/4" and I punched out the center of the largest flower using a scallop circle punch. I adhered the scallop flower to the top of my card with some foam tape, stamped the sentiment using January's SOTM - Happy Valentine's Day and embellished them with some bitty pearls.

I've created a new page on my blog titled "MYSTERY HOSTESS" on the top right hand side for future reference.
Today, I decided to create some cute little Love Notes to put in my kids' lunchboxes each day. They are super easy to make too! All you have to do is choose what color cardstock you'd like to use and trim away. I used 2 sheets of 12" x 12" cardstock and trimmed every 2 inches until I had a 2" square. I then rounded all of the corners and stamped my little owl and heart. They fit perfectly inside the rounded square window tin that I tied with some CTMH Black Tulle Ribbon.
