Valentine Cards

I don't make or send Valentine Cards myself, even though I had quite a few stamps and paper to do so.

 Last year my grandaughter decided that she would like to make cards for her class, this was early in the evening and she was leaving our house the next day about noon to go home.  I got out valentine papers, stamps, inks, and embellishments.  We decided that a triangular piece of paper on either side of the front of the card, a stamped and coloured image on the other side of the front and some embellishments would work.  On the inside we stamped Happy Valentines Day.  My daughter Cheryl went to bed before Rachel and I had finished working on the cards.  Cheryl was doing some stamping  and Rachel was coloring and putting the embellishments on where we thought they were needed.  We finally finished about 1:30 in the a.m., but we had 28 cards ready to go.

The top pictures are samples of some of the finished cards.  The bottom is Cheryl and Rachel proud of their handiwork from the night before.  I sent most of the stamps and lots of paper and and embellishments home with them.
