Happy Valentine's Day

I've made some "love" themed cards this month:

This one is based on a card sketch at Scrapping Everyday Miracles:



I used some older papers in my stash, and added dimension by matting the heart motif with a piece of pale pink felt.

I'm also linking up at Scrap It Girl - where the theme is HEARTS this month.

Materials:
Bo Bunny Sweetie Pie patterned paper
Kaisercraft Flutterby - Painted Lady patterned paper
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type aphabet stickers
Dew Drops Versa Magic - Sahara Sand fluid chalk


My next card was inspired by the February challenge at Show Us Your Stuff.  The quote reads: "Follow your heart and happiness will follow":



I made the little felt heart - I cut the shape freehand, stitched around the edge, and added a diamante brad to the centre.
The hand-dyed wrinkle ribbon is from Prairie Bird Boutique.

Other materials:
Bella Sarah Jane - Narratives journal card
Kaisercraft Tiny Alphabets - Chocolate stickers
