A Little Inspiration for Valentines

I don't have much to share today as I am working on a couple of fun projects that I look forward to sharing in the coming days, so I thought I would show you a few more 'peeks' of the cards
that I made for my mom.

I know in my last post I mentioned working outside the color 'box' for Valentines, but of course, it couldn't last forever.  Found myself right back into the reds, pinks and whites with a hint of
something 'extra' here and there.

Definitely getting some mileage out of my Sizzix Primitive Hearts die cuts, but once again, I have stuck to using papers that I have had for awhile.  The theme for me though, was to continue to keep these very simple so I could get a variety done in a short amount of time.

Love the new Martha Stewart punches for spring.
The 'eyelet lace' and 'pansy' punches will get a lot of use.
Also new for spring are the K&Company 'Ka-Zoo' foil sticker borders.  These fabulous hearts are from that collection and the tiny hearts in the photo before this one are the 'cutouts' from the border.

If you haven't entered your guess for the
you have until tomorrow to do so.
Just click HERE for the details. 
It's been a lot of fun to see what you have come up with for guesses and I think you are going to be
TOTALLY surprised by the answer!
