Cut, Paste, Glue! Glitter 'n Paper too!

I spent a few wonderful hours in my studio today...
Do you remember making Valentine cards as a kid? I certainly do!!
It was so much fun to pick out the perfect one for the teacher & then another for that special someone!! I decided to transport myself back to a simpler time today, channel my inner child & get crafty with my Valentines this year!
{If get one of these in the mail & you're reading this: sorry for the spoiler!! XOXO}
Since Maggie can't really read yet {& she visits more than our blog!}, I can tell you all that I made the one above for her, because she is my Sweet Valentine after all!! {I already have a special bear & some goodies hidden away for her!!}
I can't tell you who's getting these two...the tag is actually a card though, so I didn't want to put any fibers in the hole like I usually would because it would be hard to open!
{images from same collage sheet as above}
Last, is this "smoldering" romantic card!
And you guessed it! It's for the hubby!!
You may recognize the image - I used it on my Bingo swap cards I posted the other day.
{You can see that post here.}
One of the things I like best about working with COLLAGE SHEETS is the instant gratification when I order them!
Meaning, I only have to wait for an email & not snail mail, before I get to play with them!

These are so nice - I especially love the little clown with the flowers image! And the gatefold card is terrific!
