card making night - valentine's day style!

Every other month I travel to my mother-in-law's house house (about a 45 minute drive) and I hold a 3 for $6 card night there with her and her friends. We've been doing this just a little over a year now. Everyone seems to have a great time and it has worked really well into my schedule of having one more event I can count on to create cards! The turn out has always been really good, but last week there were 21 ladies, which was awesome!! This time around we decided to make all Valentine's Day cards. What fun!

The first card I designed using the sketch from The Paper Players.

Card #1
It's difficult to see but the Bashful Blue background has polka dots using the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate created with the Big Shot.

Card #3

I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the words to give it a little extra sparkle.

Now this looks like one fun card class, Heidi! All three of the cards are so fresh and so fun. I have to tell you that I am smitten with your Send Me Soaring card, though. I just ordered that set and now I can't wait to get it. So clean and fresh and I adore that color combo, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
