Valentine's Day Card Inspiration?

Okay, so I've been doing some lately & I have seen several cards that I thought would be fun to make.'s my version of those cards with a Valentine's twist to them. Hope this will inspire you to go make some cards this week!

This card was made for Freshly Made Sketches, Challenge 71.

This card was created as a result of a conversation with a co-worker who has a child that was born on Valentine's Day. She mentioned that it's very difficult to find a card that has BOTH Birthday & Valentine's Day in the same card. I found out what kind of things her daughter likes & well, here you go!

Love in a Jar. Several of the stamps used are retired, but you know what? They still stamp just fine.

Another take on the Zebra card. This one is strictly Valentine's Day, the inside sentiment defines it as such (take my word for it, okay?)

One of my favorite cards. It turned out SOooo cute! Really like it.

My 2nd most favorite. I love that it's quite simple & yet also kind of a "Wow" card.

Can I have 3 favorites? I really love how this one turned out too. Simple, yet elegant thanks to the embossing folder used on the lower half. I'd be happy to get this (hint, hint Hubby!)
