Sorry for the long absence, yet again. I have been very busy with a new project at work so blogging, and even scrapping, have had to take a bit of a back seat. I had a meeting with clients in New Jersey on Valentine's Day that went longer than expected so my darling children got i-tunes cards instead of handmade Valentine's. That was fine for Mark but Melissa jokingly reminded me how I did manage to make cards for my nephews. Note to self: don't leave making holiday cards to the last minute. LOL!
Anyway, as I said, I did make cards for my nephews Paul and Thomas who are 2 1/2 and 3. Since time was of the essence, I pulled out an old mini-pad of Cosomo Cricket and used two of the journaling cards as my sentiment. I customized each with the heart outline stamped in black and filler stamped in red. I added a little shine to the heart with Glossy Accents. A little twine for the one card and brads on each finished them off and kept them flat for mailing.
Here is the card I made for Thomas:
And, here is the card I made for Paul:
Paul's mom, Jenn, texted me to tell me that Paul loved his Valentine from "Lindy"! With such a rave review, I better get to work on my St. Patrick's Day cards!
