I Heart You

I really hope that all of you are having as blessed a day (week, etc.) as I'm having.  I've been busy making cards for some clients who placed orders, working on school with my sweet Andrew, and doing housework.  My sweet hubby brought me my coffee this morning, and we spent some time visiting before he had to lay down (he's a night shift worker).   So, I decided I've finish working on some more of the Valentine's Day cards for the outstanding orders I have.
I loved making this card.  I used an old piece of patterned paper from my stash, and cut a doily from pink gingham patterned paper using my Cheery Lynn Dies French Pastry Doily Die-Cut.  It's my favorite doily die-cut.  Next, I added a chipboard pieces from Crate Paper, attached a Crate Paper sticker, a snippet of vintage lace, two wool felt flowers that I cut from Papertrey Ink flower die-cuts, and then placed a beautiful piece of Valentines Flair from a sweet Etsy shop I found called A Flair For Buttons.  This set is called Vintage Valentine's Flair 2.  I'm absolutley in love with her sweet flair.  Just look at that sweet cherrub pouring out hearts on that little girl.  Precious!
I'm excited about these challenges where I'm playing along this week:

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart, and let you know that it means the world to me that you take the time to visit my blog and peek at my cards.  I look forward to seeing what all of you have been creating this week.  Hope it's a blessed one!
