Happy Heart Day!

It's Friday! What a weird kind of week...Monday just sort of happened, I missed school on Tuesday because I had to attend a conference and then on Wednesday...we had a SNOW DAY, Thursday flew by, and here we are Friday again! Now, I have the upcoming week off, and I am looking forward to it very much! I'm hoping to get some much needed stamping accomplished.

As you can see, this week's Blogger's Challenge is Valentines. I was inspired by Nancy Riley's use of this set (SU's Season of Friendship). I loved the idea of adding hearts to the tree. My card is a little bit different because I used heart buttons from Mike's instead of hearts from a punch. I made a couple hills with the Old Olive DSP from Stampin' Up! I added some May Arts ribbon to the top and I used the sentiment from the Happy Heart Day set. You can see Nancy's beautiful card here. Thanks for the inspiration Nancy!

If you are looking for a few more Valentine ideas before the big day on Sunday, just head on over to the other Ladies' blogs in the challenge group here. I hope that you have a lovely day, and thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D

You really got me thinking with this card...I am accumulating many ideas for a project I am working on.. I love the hearts and the way you paper pieced the bottom of the card.

THIS IS AWESOME! I gave this set away because I just didn't see the possibilities. Love the use of the buttons and your patterned paper. I think you've enabled me enough that this is now back on my wish list. Great job!

A most excellent card! My favorite stamp set is the one with this tree (at least for this catalog!) Love the buttons--I have them too but never remember to use them!
Great job!
