Fluttering hearts



I've been making tons of Valentine cards lately..one of my favorites!
 Every month I do a card class at a local assisted living home, they LOVE making cards. This month was Valentines, and I think it was one of their favorites to make too. I had 5 different EZ cards ready, and did not plan on actually doing all of them, but since they were having such a good time, I kept going. Some even made more! I have both guys and gals that come, and I have to say I think this time the guys had the most fun. One made several for his grand kids. I love to see the smiles on their faces when they they leave with their stack of cards!

For this card, I used my Stampin Up heart dies, a pretty piece of patterned paper, and a few sequins. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions," many mini's."

I'm entering this Valentine card at:






Love and friendship








Have a great day!
