Love Always

I was feeling the love and decided to start a few Valentines cards.  This one is made with more gorgeous papers from Basic Grey's PB & J pack.  The stamp is from Simon Says Stamp.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Designer Paper (Basic Grey: PB & J) & (PTI))
Ink: Versamark; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: SSS (Music 2 My Ears); WPlus9
Other: Notebook Die (MFT)

The heart is stamped with Versamark onto red designer paper and heat embossed, and then adhered with foam tape.  I love the subtle flourishes you can see from the stamp.

It's goodbye to my brother today and hello to 3 glorious days at the beach for complete relaxation!  I'll leave you with a picture of us three kids and my Mom.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, see you all again next week!

Hi Brenda, Your card is lovely. I guess I should be making a start on my Valentine cards. Your family looks like they are having a great time. Enjoy your three days at the beach

Sweet Brenda! That is one DARLING Valentine card! That SWEET heart is almost looks like velvet fabric. I love how you used the pretty patterned paper and the notebook die. GREAT design and perfect sentiment. Love it!

AND...what a LOVELY photo of the three of you with your dear mom. How fun that you were all together for Christmas. Those times with family are always SO special. (I just experienced that feeling, and had a wonderful time with all my siblings, parents, nieces, and nephews, at Christmas. It's not often that we are all together. We created some FUN memories!)

Take care!
Enjoy your time at the beach!
Sending you BIG HUGS! ♥
