Love Note

This cute and simple card will be going out
 to one of my dear friends.
Although she has a lot of people who care about her,
she stays to herself and spends most of her time making
sure that her sister is comfortable in the nursing home.
Hoping to brighten her day a bit, 
I made her this "love note" Valentine.

The envelope and hearts on the front are from Doodlecharms,
while the hearts that adorn the inside are from the Sweethearts cartridge.
I also used the Sweethearts card feature to cut the card base.
The banner is hand-cut, but I am not sure who makes the stamp,
since it seems that I had cut off the top of the package!
Glitter papers, inking, ribbon, and some embossing add to the flair of this project.

A handwritten "Thinking of you on Valentine's Day"
will finish off the inside.
It will be nice to let her know that a friend is thinking of 
her on this Valentine's Day and she is not alone.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:


  1. What a wonderful card to send to your friend! I LOVE the envelope/hearts from Doodlecharms-it is one of my most favorite cartridges. I think this will warm your friend's heart and make her smile! Thanks for playing along with us at Pause Dream Enjoy challenges this week!

  9. Hi Marcia, while your card is darling, to be entered in the BBTB2 weekly challenge, your card should be new the week of the challenge. Thank you for linking to us and for posting this cute card. If you craft a new valentine this week, please do link the challenge again!

    1. I apologize and took off the BBTB2 link. I was mistaken when I thought it just needed to be a new project of mine that was still in the contest time period. I will be much more careful in the future.

  10. Wow, it is always nice to get a valentine card from a friend. I know she will appreciate your thoughtfulness. So many cute little hearts coming out of thar envelope. Thanks for sharing at bbtb2.
