I {Heart} Hearts

With Valentine's Day fast approaching I thought I should make a few more cards. At first I was stumped for ideas but then I decided to copy myself.  That decision was made easy because I found an identical card blank and the same snippet I used before.  You'll see I did change up little girls though.
Then I decided to use up some other random pieces I had lurking around in my Valentine pile to make this happy heart dog. Much like the Christmas pile that thing isn't going to get used up in my lifetime either, but I keep plodding away at it.
I used glossy accents on the pup's nose and eye for a little touch. I thought about glittering the heart but I needed a VD card for a guy so I left that frilly touch off.

Well, that's me using some bits and pieces so it's off to the Snippets Playground. That's twice in one week. It's like it is becoming a habit or something.

The Fine Print; Valentine stamps by Stampin' Up (two different sets), LOVE greeting by Copper Leaf Creations, foam heart from Joann's crafts, and everything else from my stash 'o stuff.

YOu have the same Crapalanche that I have (and Hettie at the Snippets Playground coined that Bloginition. Doesn't it fit superbly?! I love this cute dog! He looks a lot like the kind I make for my DD. He's huggable, and so cute with all the heart papers. Will make somebody's heart go flutter fer shore. TFS & have a great weekend.

Way to build on that Valentine stash a little early! I just love the papers on the first, and that dog on the 2nd is woofy cute :)

These are adorable! Love the sweet images holding hearts! The second one is a great male card! I often copy myself when I need inspiration!

LOVE both cards but the cute dog really gets my vote.
Great snippets use too. Well done that woman.

See me in the Playground Tree house for some well-earned hooch later!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Looks like you're making a bigger dent in your pieces than I am. I just give up and stuff them back in the box. Sometimes I think I'll just dump the whole box in a big bag and give it to a stamping friend to play with. both images are adorable and fun!

Greta said...

These are so cute, Judy! Of course, being a dog person I really love the second one!
