Happy Valentine's Day!

As promised, here are the valentine easel cards I made for Sierra, Brooke and Amber:




I had to quickly take pictures of them at their house as my daughter had borrowed my camera when she went to Hawaii and I got the camera back yesterday.  Usually I try to take better photos.  Sierra was very anxious to get her card!  Brooke took her card & treat basket upstairs and has it displayed in her room.
I used a digi image that I found here.  I used the coloured version because colouring stamps is not one of my favourite pasttimes!  I used my Martha Stewart heart punch and the designer paper is from my stash.  I can't remember which company made the paper but I thought the colours worked well with the cardstock I chose.

Here are the treat baskets I made for the girls:




I got the tutorial from Dawn here but I made mine a bit bigger (paper was cut 6 x 6 inches).  The heart is a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon on the handle was bought at Michaels.  I got the charm from Stampin Bella a long time ago.  I filled the baskets with Hershey chocolate hearts.

I'll leave you with a picture of my newest granddaughter Amber that my daughter took and that I found on my camera when I got it back from her:


 If this cutie patootie doesn't put a smile on your face, nothing will!

It is almost 2 p.m. and I am tired and sleepy so I am going to lie down for a nap!
Thanks for stopping by!
