Valentine's cards

Happy Friday everyone! It was a short school week for my kiddos this week- stormy weather has kept them home for the past two days! Everyone's getting a little cabin fever right now ! My son's DS is getting a good workout!!! I've managed to sneak some stamping time in and I even managed to get a card made for this week's Mojo Monday challenge.

Here's the sketch:

I used stamps from CTMH's Whooo's Your Valentine kit campaign . You get all this for just $10  when you spend only $30 form the catalogue!!

So here's my cards I made.......

Isn't this little owl so cute? I'm sure I'll being using this little guy for more than just Valentine's cards.
The ric-rac ribbon is from some of my original stash that I had before I started cardmaking!!! Yikes , now that's a long time ago!!! I think I used it for trim for dresses for my girls when they were little (gosh, I'm really starting to feel old!!!!) But now it's found a good home in my papercrafts stash! I only have a wee bit left after this project! I'm gonna enter this card  over at Shopping Our Stash "Use Your Oldest Ribbon" challenge, since this ric-rac ribbon is over 12 years old!!!!
The polka dot paper is from SU ( retired Valentines dp 5+ years old!!) and the grey and pink cardstock is also SU. Lots of sewing on this card,too. I've must've been feeling nostalgic for my good ole sewing days when I saw the ric-rac!!! LOL

Now onto my second card:

This one follows the sketch over at Mojo more closely so I'm gonna enter it there!! I made a few changes , like old MM heart brads and some twine to the front. All the stamps are from the same CTMH set, including the inside sentiment........

It's hard to see in this photo, but there's a fun little heart stamped behind the you+me .
My Valentine's card stash is growing rapidly- but with cute stamps like these, it's so much fun to create,don't you think???
So, I manage to complete two challenges in one single day *woot-woot** I'm feeling quite accomplished!!!! :-)
Thanks for stopping by today.... have a great weekend!!
