Valentine's Day cards

Although I've never really "bought" into the whole idea of Valentine's day, the children in my life have, so I have to play along for their sake!! I think that there shouldn't be just ONE day to tell people you love them - it should be EVERY day of the year! AND I find it too commercialized - it's a silly day!!!! LOL Anyway, here are some cards I made for my nieces and nephews, and friends of the family. This one is made from Victoria Case's "Monster Hugs" stamp - isn't he an adorable little guy??
This cat is a digital image is from squigglefly.

This pig is from a set from CC Designs at All that Scraps (I think it comes in digital too). I drew the cloud he is sitting on and filled it with Glittering Crystal 3D paint I got at Michael's. The hearts were punched from a One Sheet Wonder I did but never "did"...know what I mean?? LOL
Another using the same pig.
Here is a close up so you can see the cloud a bit better!
The background paper is more from the One Sheet Wonder I made using a variety of hearts and sayings from a the new Verve Stamps Valentine sets. The dragon is from High Hopes, and the sentiment is from an SU set called Happy Heart Day (oh how that saying makes me crazy!!!). His name is Huggable Hank - but I thought he looked like he should be holding a big heart!! That is the Marvy Mega scallop punch.

Here is a side view so you can see how it is all popped out.

This bunny is from the same set as the pig - there is also a bear in heart boxers. He is going to be for the boys' Valentine's Day cards!!! The sentiment is masked from an Easter $1.50 stamp from Michael's. The paper is from my scraps and the buttons are from my stash!!!

oh my!! I have been missin' out. These are all so precious! I think the monster and dragon are the best though. Must be the testosterone around here that is influencing my judgement today. LOL I am leaning towards boy cards, I believe, and that does NOT happen often. *wink* They are really all GREAT cards though, Chris!
