1st Valentine Card
I remember that when I was growing up, Valentine cards were just for those "in love" ... whether it was your boyfriend or hubby. I remember the excitement of receiving those special cards from that someone special ... and the ones signed "secret admirer" were so much fun! The search for that secret person and then the cherry on the top was realising that it was indeed from the one whose attention you had been hoping to catch during the last couple of weeks! :-) Anyway, as the years went by, Valentine cards became a way to show love to all the loved ones in your life, be it your other half, your kids, siblings, parents, etc. Since my SIL was visiting us from Holland, I decided to give her her card and little gift early - this way she got to take it with her when she left us today to go back home. This is the card I came up with and I think it turned kinda cute. The inside is stamped with the Valentine day message and also with a few little hearts. The frame and tag were cut using Spellbinders dies while the strawberry was cut at 2" using the Hello Kitty cartridge.
