Valentine's Day is Just Around the Corner!

I know it seems a little premature, but Valentine's Day is only 43 days away!  It seems like a long time, but if you think about it 43 days will be gone before you know it.  I tend to start thinking about holidays well in advance of the actual date so that I have time to make some cute cards and whatever else I can think of, so I'm right on time.  I hope you are too!

Being Sunday and all, I checked out the new Sweet Sunday sketch and decided to jump start my Valentine's Day cards!

And Karen's card with the delicious felt made me remember that a few weeks ago, I had seen a gorgeous card made with felt by Lil' Inker Designs and I promised myself that I would dig in to my felt stash and actually use it.


I ran some pink felt through my Tasteful Trim Sizzix die, then stitched some chocolate chip ribbon to it with a zig-zag stitch.  Aside from the fact that the birds are crooked and the picture itself is crooked, I'm pretty happy with this card.  I feel like I've gotten my feet wet with the felt, and before winter is over I hope to use it some more.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today! Pin It Now!
