You Make My Heart Happy!

Making Valentine's is certainly a LOT easier than it was when we were kids! Now we have fancy punches to eliminate the tedious cutting by hand, cute rubber stamps for design and colorful inks instead of crayons. Best of all, no messy white Elmer's glue! Oh, how I love my new adhesive tape gun. :)

This card was super simple and easy to mass-produce. It is a 4-3/4" square, but I made a few in the standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" too. The inside sentiment is appropriately "Happy Valentine's Day!" This design can be used for any occasion by simply varying the sentiment and the little stamps used in the centers of the flowers.

I have some EXCITING NEWS that I'm so anxious to share with all of you! Our daughter Katie is engaged! Warrick proposed yesterday at sunset on the beach at Waikiki! Isn't that romantic? She's so happy and I'm SO HAPPY for her! : ) XXXOOO

Believe it or not, I have another Valentine's Day card made and ready to post tomorrow. It's one I made for "Mr Wonderful" using the Stampendous Changito Love Balloon. You'll have to stop by again tomorrow to see it!
Have a LOVELY day everyone! Hugs & Smiles, Pam :)
