Be My Sweetheart

Good Monday afternoon, everyone! (I just typed Monday morning. Geez!)

I have a fun Valentine's card today.. a variation on a theme if you've been here before.

I was thinking of hearts and thought about the bare tree from Sewing Box Christmas... and thought what a perfect pair that would make! I stamped and cut out my hearts, but this card would come together in a snap if you had a small heart punch.

I paired my tree of hearts with a plaid background using Off Beat Backgrounds. I think these sets go so well together - the cards always feel so homey and comfy to me. I finished it off with a little ink around the edges and a twill bow. The sentiment is from Sweethearts, part of January's release. The other half of the release, Faux Fun, and should be shipping some time this week!

I hope your evening is fabulous! I have some more lovey cards to make!
