card #2 and #3

 It is hard to believe that I have made 3 cards already for the year. Well to be honest I have made 5 so far but I will share more later.

The first card is My Grandson's very first valentines card. I hope the kids get a smile out of it, until Henry is really old enough to view it and know what it is. measures 4 x 5.5
I love how it turned out. The little stamp if you remember is one I just bought. I never use them this quick. I had also just purchased that paper about a month ago. I am so proud of myself for doing that.

The second card is always one we dislike making. For someone who has lost a loved one. I won't say sympathy because I honestly hate that word. I just say thinking of you. I used old stamps and products but that is good too. I haven't used them in a long time. I like the way it turned out. Even though I hate making them. So sad and never words that really impact how the person is feeling.:(

So what new items have you used recently. I challenge you to use something old( never touched) and something recently gifted or purchased. I am gonna keep using it all. I have continued with this using the brand new. I never thought I would. Really loving how freeing and fun it is. Have a creative weekend.
