Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

I know it is a no-no for most scrappers and cardmakers I know, but I buy my cards, even the birthday ones for my family. So yesterday I was entering the cardshop with the intent to buy one for my husband, each of my two children when I remembered that:

I had card blanks.
I had a big pile of patterned paper.
I had a big pile of left over patterned paper.
I had just received a Studio Calico kit containing 164 Valentine inspired stickers.

So I turned back with the full intention of making the cards myself as soon as I got home. I only made them this morning, and they won't win any prizes, but I managed to used some of my left overs plus 21 stickers of the 164! (I used some in the inside of the card, plus the alpha ones to spell their names in the envelopes).
