2010 Valentine Cards for the Men!

Valentine's Day was just around the corner...I really had to make card for my family.  I made my first trip to my local scrapbook store, Scrapbook Nook in Kent, WA and to my local JoAnns store to buy Valentine papers.  What I had used for Christmas just wouldn't work for this holiday, that's for sure.

I bought paper, ribbon, buttons, rhinestones, brads, embroidery floss, twine, and a page of puffy stickers, but I was very conservative.  But,. . .the slippery slope had begun!  Looking back...I see that I was stuck on making them all horizontally and opening from bottom to top!

John's card - Feb. 2010

David's card - Feb. 2010

Mark & Ginger's card - Feb. 2010

What fun it was...again...I was so proud of myself!  I love this quick self-gratification.  Sewing was a lot harder and took a lot longer to finish.   I was in my element!
