Valentines for the CFTHD 2015


As promised earlier this week, today I'm sharing another sampling of some of the ATC Valentines I've been making for the 2015 Cards From the Heart Drive. This one uses SU! retired dsp, stamps, their tag punches, and a little snippet of ribbon.


Again, I'm using the SU! tag punches with a retired SU! stamp set, some Bo Bunny dsp and a piece of twine.

This  color is Rich Razzleberry from SU! with a Lil Inker stitched heart and arrow. The little banner was done with SU! stamps and a punch. The address label on the mini envie was done with a SU! stamp & punch set.

This one uses the same elements as the previous card, but with a tiny heart added that came from a SU! owl punch. It's orange, and I use lots of different colors for Valentines - not just red or pink.


This is a stamp set I borrowed from Mary Anne, and I forget who makes it :) The inside says "I wheely Love you." This version is done in coral......


and this one was done in blue.


This is another stamp borrowed again from my generous friend Mary Anne, and it's by Printworks. The little Valentine sentiment stamped inside the heart is a retired SU! stamp I found at a random sale for 50 cents. I knew one day it would come in handy with it's small size! I added an IO die cut button, some twine, and some pool party ribbon to the bottom. The dsp used for the card and envie is from Wild Asparagus.


I took this picture just before I sealed the box up to get it ready for mailing. It holds 308 Valentines for the Cards from the Heart Drive, and most of them are the ATC size with envelopes that the children can exchange with their friends and/or family.

Please consider sending in some valentines for these children if you have any extras. Click the big pink heart on the top of my sidebar and it will take you to Winter's blog for all the details you need to know!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

308 Valentines? Wow! Carol, you made really an incredible number of cards, but sure the number of kids in hospitals is so much great, unfortunately!
We make a praiseworthy thing!
Your cards are all very beautiful, love their simply design and the pretty details; the bright colours are perfect for kids. My favourite is the last one, with the very cute little baby, it's adorable!

U go! These are fantastic! Glad you liked the little doll stamp. I had a feeling it would be the perfect size. The wagon is Clear Dollar Stamps, which I believe is out of business. Nice work, as always, Carol!
