Valentine's Day - Crazy4Challenges

In honor of the month of February, the Crazy4Challenges challenge this week was to make a Valentine's Day card. As it so happens, my sister and I are in the midst of a project to make 90 Valentine's Day cards for the residents of the assisted living facility where my mom lives. So it was not hard to have an entry in this week's challenge. To make this project not quite as daunting as it may first appear, I actually made six cards of each design that I made.

These two cards feature stamps from SU's Grateful Greetings set. The one on the left also has a Michael's $1 stamp, colored with Copics, and a border using a Martha Stewart border punch. The hearts on the one on the right are from the Cuttlebug Concentric Heart die. The paper on this card is white mulberry paper with red hearts scattered throughout.

The papers on the card on the left are from a pad of really pretty paper I bought last year -- K & Company's Smitten Specialty Paper Pad. Martha Stewart's heart button punch worked well with the thin ribbon on the card on the right.
My sister called me this morning. She is finished with her 45 cards and is putting them in the mail for me today. I was a little late in starting (yesterday), and so far I have 36 cards finished. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have only nine more to go!
