Hi all! And a Very Happy Friday to you! Hope you have been having a Wonderful first week of the new year! Mine has been good, Super busy, but good! 8-)  I've been working on several Valentine type projects that you all will get to see over the next few days. Let me tell ya, I just Love making Valentine's cards, almost more than making Christmas or Halloween cards.. lol So be forewarned..8-)  So for today's post, I thought I would share my Super quick cards inspired by Impression Obsession's Hearts and Flowers Challenge.

I actually made a few of these... They are all a bit different from each other though which makes it kind of fun to make up a bunch.. 8-) 

I just Loved this Darling card by Mitra Friant, the Owner of Impression Obsession, and thought I would try my hand at a few, but with a Valentine theme instead.. I started off by stamping my Sweet Valentine stamps image by Leigh Hannan onto both white and pink CS from my stash using Aged Mahogany Distress ink.  I colored up the Valentine stamps images I stamped onto the white CS with my trusty Copics and cut  them out. The ones I stamped onto my Pink CS, I kept intact and matted them up with some burgundy CS from my stash and attached them to my brick red card bases. To finish them all up,  I just popped up a few of the ones that I colored up and cut out onto each card using a bit of foam tape and then stamped my Cute little I/O OXOXOX Sentiment , also by Leigh Hannan, directly onto my Card base with Aged Mahogany Distress ink. See, pretty easy peasy, huh?... 8-) 

Hope you all have a Fantastic day & thanks so much for dropping by!
