 Red and Green-for Christmas, yes. But for Valentine's Day, why not?

I found inspiration for these on Pintrest. 

The papers and images are from SU. Ribbons from the scrap box. I did the sentiments on the computer and cut them apart. 

Here are closer views of each.

I am entering these for the Anything Goes at Tuesday Morning Sketches

Valentine Card

Not doing much prep for Christmas this year. We were with all our family at Thanksgiving. It will just be my husband and I. He is easy to please so probably not even an elaborate meal.

That gives me time to craft and start on Valentine cards.

I used some old papers I found in the Valentine supplies. The stitched label is from Pink and Main.

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

Peaceful snowflakes

Whew! It has been a whirlwind few weeks. I participated in a Christmas Market sale. The next day, we traveled to my son's house for the week to celebrate Thanksgiving with the whole family. Then, we were home a week and packed up again and flew to Florida for some warm R&R. I have not made a card or blogged for 3 weeks. 

This year I decided to use this one digital Christmas Greeting to send to my family and friends via email and facebook.  Rather than send out individual cards, I decided to donate the Christmas cards I had made to a local assisted living facility for their residents to choose to send to their families and friends. I know it is hard for them to get out to shop for cards. Many won't be able to see their families this year. I do hope they enjoy sending my cards. 

The card is a total SU products card. The sentiment is embossed in silver. I used vellum snowflakes behing the sentiment panel as well as a panel of vellum.  Some silver sequins add a little more sparkle.

Inside is another SU sentiment and snowflakes.
