A couple Valentines Day type cards...

I know it's not even close to Valentine's Day!  But I made these cards forever ago and I thought maybe it was time to share them!  :)

Here is a CAS card, with some stripes and a splash of pink...

And one more CAS card using those adorable little giraffe dies....

Just flopped one upside down and added a heart!  Can you see that texture in the background?  Love it!  I think this card is kinda fun!  

Well, I am super tired!  This will be a short and sweet post!   I really should get to bed!  Hope you are all having a great day!

Both cards are wonderful, but that little giraffe card really made me smile. Giraffes are my favorite animal and the little heart on the butt is too adorable!

Two very sweet cards. You are really making me love that texture background. I am trying to decide which Impression plate to include in my next PTI order, it's between this one, woodgrain, and polka dots right now. So when you add texture to the entire card base like the giraffe card, do you run it through folded?

I love both card, but I just can't stop looking at the first one...so CAS, so mod, and so perfect. Also, I was on the fence on that PTI plate, but now, I think I have to have it.

Both are adorable but I think my favorite is the gray and white one! I love how the pink heart pops against the background and the font for that sentiment is awesome!
