A Pink and Green Valentine

For my second granddaughter who is three, I designed a Valentine with a retired SU set that included a cute mouse holding a heart!  It is another box card; you would think I would get tired of making them since most of my Christmas cards this past year were box cards!

I entered this card in Challenge #75--Valentines at Cards und More and the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge which was to use pink and another color.

A Purple Valentine!

My card was "Showcased" on the Die Cuttin' Divas Blog for Challenge #102!

One of my granddaughters loves the color purple, so I decided to forgo the usual red hearts and to create a purple Valentine for her.  I tucked a small treat inside the envelope for Valentine's Day.
I entered this Valentine in the Amusing Challenges--All About You Challenge which was to create a card using the word "you," the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C172 which was to make a Valentine's Day card with hearts but no pink or red colors, and in Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #102 which was to use a die cut (SU's envelope die) and the colors red, pink, purple, and/or white.

Pinkalicious Birthday Card

My sister-in-law's birthday is two days before Valentine's Day so I do not use a lot of red when I make her card.  Mary Fish posted a creative card with a unique fold, so I decided to CASE the card in order to create a birthday card for my sister-in-law.

I entered this card in Platypus Creek Digitals Challenge 25 Pretty Party Time.

"All You Need Is Love"

On the CAS-ual Fridays blog, challenge CFC89 is to create a card that is inspired by a song.  Since it is Valentine's Day on Thursday, I chose "All You Need Is Love" for my song.  Since I am giving this card to one of my grandsons, it does not have a lot of embellishments on it.

I also entered this card in Fresh Brewed Designs "Hearts and Dots" challenge, the Catered Crop Polka Dot Recipe Swap Quickfire challenge, and the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #67 Love/Anything Goes.
