Valentine RAKs

Hello! I hope you're all having a great week so far! It's quite warm in Toronto today and it feels a lot like spring. Today, I'm sharing three of the gifts I received on Valentine's Day, in the order I received them.

First up is the card my husband made me. He used Pink Cat Studio's Dacty Holding a Heart, some Tim Holtz tissue tape and a Hero Arts sentiment. I think it's such a cool card but how could I not? ;) After I read his card, he said asked me if I made the connection between the postage stamps on the tissue tape and the sentiment. LOL

Next up are photos of Lexy's two cuties wearing the necklaces I made! I'm happy to report that they were a huge hit.

And Lindsey used all sorts of Unity goodness to create shimmery heart balloons tied with cord. I love the way she punched out a hole for the sentiment to sit on the card base.

Thank you for these wonderful gifts that make me smile! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day, too! See you tomorrow for the Pink Cat Studio Rapunzel Release!!
