A few sweet little Valentines

Apparently, the last few days I've been working on Valentines.  I didn't know this until I looked back at what I was making and saw there was a heart theme going on!  And now that I think of it, they all feature my new Doodlecharms cartridge.  It's such a sweet cart, it's made me let my hair down and for once just do CUTE!  So this one here started as an experiment.  I was playing with my ink blending tool and seeing how it would look with the embossing folders.  It worked well with this folder so I added some Doodlecharms hearts and a punched border.  Now it's a Valentine for one of my grandaughters.

This little puppy from Doodlecharms is a "just because" card for my 2 year old granddaughter.  She loves getting her own mail and thanked me profusedly when I sent her a card this past week.  Nothin' fancy here but a toddler sure can appreciate a puppy and sparkly pink hearts!

This was a fun one for my chemo buddy.  I'm just letting her know I'm thinking of her, and I think this conveys that.  Doodlecharms for the mailbox, my ever fav A Child's Year for the grass, and envelopes done by hand.  I stamped some hearts and added just a touch of stickles.  This took awhile with all the paper piecing but I enjoyed doing it for her.

And a BIG thank you to all the congrats I had for having some mentions in the "CHIRP".  I had 1 last week, and 2 cards mentioned this week.  Just lucky I had a few new carts and they were featuring those, but it was a fun 5 seconds of fame!  LOL!  Thanks for taking a peek!


  1. Oh, these are so sweet Ramona! I know your DGD is going to love all those hearts. It is nice to do something different for a change, I think it clears your mind and makes you think out of the box. Love all three my friend.

    Hugz, xx
