Valentine Cards

I didn't get my cards posted yesterday as I finished the last one at 4:15. We were leaving at 5:00 and I still had to get ready.  We had a great time, wonderful meal that my Son-In-Law fixed and everyone loved their cards and Valentine Pouches. 
Since it was the anniversary of my Mom's death, it was wonderful being with our family all evening.

Check back at noon for our Wild Wednesday Sale

Philip and Lori's card.  The Basket (CR1208),  Tulips dies (LR0209) and  Anja's Dots Embossing folder (DS0916) are new from Marianne.  I hope to get them posted today. 
I used my favorite Cheery Lynn Border (B153) too.

Toddy and Kelsey's card.  I used Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die to cut the flowers out of Vellum and then spritzed the with water so they would curl up.  The center is the LaRue Flourish die (98218) .  Love is cut off of the Garden of Love die (B141) by Cheery Lynn.  The Two of Hearts (DL128) added the extra touch I needed.  I used Glue and Seal by Ranger to attach the thin delicate die.  It is perfect for this kind of die.

Kara's loves bling, so after cutting the LaRue Heart (98255)I added a fabric flower I had made with a clear rhinestone for it's center.  The String Punch by Martha Stewart gives interest around the red card stock.

Of course I couldn't for get my awesome hubby, Jon.  Knowing he wouldn't like frills I kept his card pretty simple.  This heart  is the Serifina (98278) and Cupid (98281) Hearts by Memory Box. 

I just had to post Selma's gorgeous card too.  She is also using new products from Marianne.

The cards are breath taking - you two ladies can really make the new tools work so well. Truley makes a person(Crafter) want to own them all.
Such great idea you teach us. Love you both and love your creations as much.
