SOS #38 - Valentine, Hearts, Lace

It's time for this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge! This week is (surprise) Valentine's Day! We ask you to make a Valentine's Day card OR use hearts OR use lace OR use a Meljen's image -- OR -- mix it up and do several of them all together! It's your choice, so surprise us. :)

I'm not a big Valentine's Day fan, so I chose hearts for my card:

I used a piece of Pool Party DSP from the In Colors 12x12 pack that I opened (finally) last week - a piece was out on my desk, so I used it. :) I opened and used my new-to-me Fashionable Hearts embosslit die, and cut out hearts from both sides of a few pieces of the Pool Party paper, then sewed them into a line. Easy, peasy. The sentiment is from a set I got last year - stamped it in Basic Gray, which is a little bit softer than black would have been.

Now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash, find some hearts or lace or just make a Valentine's Day card, OR use a Meljen's image (LOTS of options, there, people), make a card, then link us up over at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!
