Several years ago I made these Valentines Cards for my Etsy store. I have for many years enjoyed making cards by hand to give to others. I so enjoy creating the cards, I think it means so much to someone when you take the time to make one for a friend or loved one in your life. The heart was painted with acrylic paint. I used a base coat of brown then red and pink on top. I outlined the heart then cut it out, and attached a few layers of torn decorative paper.



This card was created with a stamp I purchased at a local art and crafts store. The top was stamped in gold. The heart was painted on watercolor paper, then stamped a design on top. After I cut it out I attached it to the card. At the bottom of the card I glued some decorative paper.

Say I LOVE YOU in some special way. That is my motto as I live life creatively!

Pretty cards! Thanks for stopping my blog and checking in on me. 2010 was a really busy year at work and 2011 may be worse but I'm trying to do better at making some time for creative endeavors. How are things in your world?
