Couple of Valentines













You know how there are some stamps that you just never want to part with? This 1999 'From the Heart' Stampin'Up! set is one of them... I bought it used when I first began making cards and every so often pull it out to send love notes to my grandkids. The images of the children remind me so much of the 'olden days' of my childhood!  I hope the kids don't think they are too old for the style but I love these images....granted I rushed to get them done so the coloring isn't my best. I wanted to make sure the cards got to them before Valentine's Day.

The cardstock is Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Real Red and retired dsp. Ellie's also has the heart stamp from 'Love You Much' and both have sentiments from 'All Holidays'.
I used watercolor paper for the images, various markers, snips, heart punch, scallop punch and dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
Blessings to all!

I agree, that is a really cute stamp set. I'm sure your grandkids love it! It's so loving just to make them a card and think of them, I'd be very touched. TFS. yolanda-tryingtobecreative.blogspot.com
