Hello it's Monday!

Monday night as a matter of fact and shortly to be over, as it is 11:45! But - I am not as late as I sometimes am LOL

I have made a Valentine card for each of my grandchildren. I have one grandson, Brandon, who is 5, and one granddaughter, Mariah, who is 2!

The first one I made is for Mariah. I know she likes pretty things - she is already a 'real girly girl'. So I tried to make her a pretty card. I used left over DP from one of my Tilda cards and SU card stock 'Pretty in Pink' as well as some Valentine Ribbon, and a pink button which I sewed on so she couldn't get it off easily.I also used paint to make dots around the outside of the DP. I coloured with my Copic pens and I think you can tell that easily on this large plain stamp. It is from SU and is called Vintage Valentines. I believe I have had it for a couple of years so it may be out of date now.

Here is the overall view:

and here is a close up of the image:

Now for Brandon's card. I am disappointed with myself over this card. I wanted something special but couldn't come up with a stamp I really liked for him so I put a couple of images together and have to make do. These, and their little gifts have to get mailed in the morning to get there on time. So I had to go with this card :o(
It is made with 'Whisper White' and 'Real Red', SU paper. It also uses a SU image from last year called 'Happy Heart Day'. It is also coloured with Copics and I used just a strip of ribbon across the top, a green button that I added embroidery floss to, plus two clear buttons that I glued onto two DP circles I cut out with my 1/2" circle cutter from SU.

Here is the overall view of Brandon's card:

Here is one of the ribbon:

Unfortunately, the picture I took of the clear buttons on the DP did not turn out :o( I used my Nesties on both cards and you will notice I did not put any white pen on these two stamped images. I wanted them plain and easy to see for the children.

I have put nice sentiments on the inside and decorated them as well. But chose not to take pictures of the insides this time.

Good night all - have a good week.

Love Candy
