I had to show you one last card I received!  This card was in my stack of mail I hadn’t opened yet.  It is from my downline, Myra and I love the ornament framelits she used.

Here are some of the other patterns from  It’s My Party Designer Series Paper stack.  My favorite pattern is on the front of the above birthday card.

Ok, let’s focus a little on Valentines cards…..

Love this simple card and the “My Valentine” sentiment!  You can see a little hint of the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper under the Jute strand.  And in the next card, we die cut Stampin” Up Bloom’ Heart Thinlit die in the luscious Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper!  It’s a winner!  And, if you are in one of my clubs – you’ll get to use the new die cut and Glimmer paper this month!
