Valentine Cards

Here is a couple of cards I made this week as samples for a crafting group I am running with a friend at the school I work at.  The emphasis is on simple card making!  The swirl stamp is from Hero Arts.  The chocolate is from Elzybells, as is the sentiment.

Lili of the Valley

This is my first card of 2011.  It has quite a few of my Christmas presents incorporated into it.  First is the lovely Lili of the Valley stamp that is coloured with ProMarkers.  The punched edge is made with my new Martha Stewart punch set.  The background square (with holes) is made with my new Spellbinders Die.  Finally, the sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley and also came from Santa.  Look out for new Lili stamps available on many new gorgeous ones.

I made a New Year Resolution to read more and so far it's going well.  Trouble is, I can't find a way to read, craft, update my blog, work, cook, clean... all at the same time.  If you can help, please let me know how I can do it. 

Books I've read so far are Fractured by Karin Slaughter and Too Close to Home by Linwood Barclay.  I'm now reading Fear the Worst by Linwood Barclay.  If you haven't read No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay you really need to!
