Late Valentine Share

Some real quick cards I made for the kiddos for Valentine's Day, they all use the Cute as a Bug set from Clear & Simple Stamps.  I used the same general layout for all 3 of them and kept it pretty simple as I was cramming them in at the VERYLASTMINUTE. 

The next card was for my hubby's birthday/Valentine's Day.  We tried to celebrate more of his birthday than Valentine's Day although I got a shock of a lifetime when the doorbell rang and there was a flower delivery.  It's those times he really catches me off guard when I'm least expecting it with fun surprises like that that really put a smile on my face.

So this card was heavily inspired by my friend Sue.  I almost jumped out of my seat with excitement when I saw her post this card.  I loved it and told her I would probably be CASE'ing it, which I did but I did change a few things on mine.

I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this challenge and the Bo Bunny Crush Collection.  I also did something I don't do often, I finished the inside of the card...and I love how it turned out.

This card uses the Golf Pro, Golf Gent, Foursome, and Love Notes from Clear & Simple Stamps.

Gotta call it a night (it's the wee hours of the morning  here) but I still need to go prep some dessert for this evening.  Having dinner with friends, they requested dessert and I know immediately why...I broke cake balls for Superbowl Sunday and they went like hotcakes, so I'll be doing those again along with some mini cheesecakes.  I'm hungry already!

Those little bug valentines are so cute. The must have been a huge hit, they are all so adorable. This is the first year I didn't make mine for the kids at school,
(feeling guilty) I bought them Valentine "Cootie Catchers" instead.
