Hanging Heart

Happy Thursday!

Its an interesting day in the household. {{sigh}}
The snow has melted, we are left with mud. {{uck}}
1SG received positive feedback regarding future employment.  {{smiles}}
We didn't get the freezing rain that was in the forecast {{hooray! }}

Most of all, I got some new goods to play with and share. 
In the meantime, I have some nontraditional valentine cards I put get together.

The hanging heart:

I used an embossed folder that is "wood grain" in the Big Shot, on Natural White. I put dimensionals on the piece. I used a very old clothes pin that I had in light purple and used the Heart to Heart punch in Perfect Plum to hang off it. I used a small bit of the hemp thread, and made a triple bow and attached it to the rear of the pin.

I like the simplicity of the card. I like that it speaks volumes, even though its just three items!  I am making a great attempt not show too many Valentine cards over the next few weeks. However bear with me - you never know what each day has to offer.

What non-traditional colors do you like for Valentines day?

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Hug the ones you love!

I like that embossing folder and the little clothespin is cute. I like any colors for Valentine's Day, I'm not partial to any one.
