Happy "V" Day!

I am a BIG fan of Valentine's Day! I love pink and red and hearts and roses and everything about it!
Valentines are my favorite cards to make!
I gave my hubby and my baby girl both gift cards for some special little things. I got these last year after valentine's day so the expiration date is this month. Hey... that could work to my advantage! I found a very cool gift card holder tutorial on Splitcoast (TLC196 instructions here) which I used at Christmas time. I brought it out again for Kevin and Katie's Valentines.
Here is Kevin's card!
One of my favorite card designs is to coordinate squares and arrange them on the card front. the possibilities are endless and it's SO much fun!And Katie's card:
I was so excited to see Beate's Sketch return this week! I made Katie's Valentine based on her sketch!
That's all for me today.
Have a LOVEly day!
