Pumpkin Spice–Last Minute Valentine’s Day Cards

Hello!   I have a couple more Valentine’s day cards to share with you.   I kept these really easy so that they would quick to make at the last minute. 


2013-02-13 PSS Quick Valentine 2 WM


I didn’t even use Valentine themed papers.  The hearts are from papers from Handmade Tiny Tablet from Lily Bee Designs.    (I think these might be me new favorite papers.  I love the colors!)  This paper pad is only $4.20 at Pumpkin Spice.

I love to stitch on almost all my cards but if you need some last minute cards, you could skip the sewing or use faux sewing.  You could even make these as single layer cards.   I’m thinking about using the same design but with different die cut shapes and sentiments to make some more quick cards for my stash.  Hmmm… what about stars and birthday greetings?


Don’t forget to share your Valentine’s day projects with us at the Pumpkin Spice Challenge!


Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
