Quick & Simple Valentines

Happy almost Friday! Going to be a long day today since we have open house tonight. Fortunately, now that teach closer to home, I won't have to stay at work between the last class and open house ... since a 14 hour day is no fun. At least tomorrow is Friday! :-)

I will be honest and say I should've started Valentine's day cards in like November (haha!), but I didn't and so I was running out of time in order to make cards for all the friends I wanted to acknowledge. So, I decided to keep it simple with some cute patterned paper. Here's my mass produced card ... This card is 3 x 5.25. A cute little size and that way I can get 12 pieces out of my one sheet of patterned paper! This cute paper is from Bo Bunny's "Love Bandit" line. Add a little brown mat and a stamped sentiment on foam tape, a bow and viola! Easy, cute cards to mail off.

The sentiment is from a cute set called Key to My Heart from Practicing Creativity. I talked about it here a few days ago. This time, I colored over my red stamped heart with a glue pen and glitzed it up. Just a little something to make this simple card seem a little more special. I love how these turned out and hope they bring a smile to some friends' faces over the next couple days!

Thanks for checking in! Have a great day! :-)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Practicing Creativity - Key to My Heart
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip; PTI Pure Poppy
Paper: PTI Kraft, Dark Chocolate, White; Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny "Love Bandit" line
