Card Cupid of the Week

I am so excited that I was chosen as the Card Cupid of the Week for the Valentine's cards I sent in to Card Cupids.

I've started working on my February cards this week. I need three birthday, two anniversary, and several Valentine's cards for the month, plus I plan to make and send a few more Valentine's cards to Card Cupids before the February 4 deadline. So far, I've completed two of the birthday cards I need for February.

For these cards I used this Card Patterns sketch from the Sketches in Thyme Tuesday Takes #9 sketch challenge.

I started with a piece of brown cardstock and punched a border along the bottom edge. I added stips of two patterned papers, two flowers with brad centers and a heart brad to each. Then a simple Happy Birthday stamp to finish them.

I'm hoping to find time in the next few days to complete my other cards for February since my goal this year is to complete all of next month's cards this month.

Many congratualations! I so admire those who make their own cards - and to be doing it in advance and not be scrabbling around at the last minute...
