Valentine Week Day 1

Hello!  Happy Monday!  I wanted to start this posy by saying THANK YOU!  Thank you for all your sweet sweet comments on Friday's post for the Hero Arts Catalog Hostess Blog Hop!  Absolutely floored with all the kind comments I received!  I very much enjoyed reading which card was your favorite!  Each card received much love!  Thank you for making me feel special!  At the end of this post I have the winner of the basic grey paper pack!

I don't know what it is but I am loving making Valentine cards!  In fact this week I will be sharing a Valentine card each day!  Do you also love making Valentines?  I want to encourage you to check out Winter's Valentine Card Drive!  This is her third year collecting Valentine cards for Children in the hospital, she does it for several hospitals!  Please check it out here.  

 I wanted to stamp and decided to make another collage stamped card like my last one but I changed it up.  Sometimes when something works and you enjoyed making it why not try it again but make it different?

Here's a side view:

And a laying flat shot:

When I started this card I wasn't going to go the window I was going to layer a pink mat stack 4 die cut with the hearts but than thought it would be way more fun to make a window!  I realized after taking photos that I am not supposed to send cards with buttons so I will take it off when I send it. To make the window I used my mat stack 4 die from PTI decided where I wanted it and used a bit of tape to hold it down, I didn't want it to be crooked!  Cute isn't it?  I think a child will like it!

I am also going to enter this card into this month's Hero Arts contest, Love Hugs and Kisses!

I used to pick the number for the lucky winner of the 6 by 6 Indie Bloom paper pack is;

These cards are fabulous, Anita! Love that first one. :)

yay Vera!  Please email me your address!  :>

Well I am off!  I love Monday night tv!  After skating lessons where I stand bent over holding Carter up and skate and  not get kicked when he "fast skates" I am tired, but I still had to get the kids to fed, educated (reading, piano, spelling, memory verses) and to bed  so now I am very tired!  Looking forward to laying on the couch and laughing at sitcoms!  See you tomorrow with another Valentine card!
