Only 14 more days until my favorite "holiday!!!" Ok, so I know Valentine's Day isn't an actual holiday, but what's not to like about a whole day devoted to love?

I'm a huge fan so naturally I couldn't wait to get started on some Valentine's Day cards. The first one I made is really playful with the red and black contrast and the sparkly heart in the middle. I know just who I want to give it to :)

These next two weeks are going to be fun and busy! I can't wait to show you all my day of love creations.

I love it when I get a request for a set of cards and the buyer simply says "they love dogs!" I thought of all sorts of ideas I could do with that theme but I decided to stick with something simple that followed my card philosophy :)

I used thicker jute on this card and I really like how it turned out. I embossed the paw print and stamped the initials using regular ink to give it a contrast and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

And the recipient loved them! So my job here is a success and I'm excited what else I can make with this great stamp!

My boyfriend's sister got me some great paper for Christmas so I started working on some birthday invites.

The invitation on the left is turning out to be one of my newest favorites. It's even cuter in real life. The colors are sooooo pretty together and just like the other invitation I made a while back, I love that you can just write your event information straight onto the invitation.

It takes me back to when I was in elementary school :)

I love making cards for my friends because they give me so much freedom to do what i want, and i get to add a little bit of their personality to the designs as well!

one of my best friends asked for an assortment of cards: thank you, "i'm sorry," just because...

I included some oldies but goodies in her set and also created a few new ones! The "you're the best" card is one of my new favorites! I laughed when she requested an "i'm sorry" card (and didn't ask for further details) and decided to take a happier approach on the message.

I definitely think the recipient will forgive her after getting that card. :)
