RAKs Received!

Just a quick post tonight to share a couple of cards I've received from friends.

This gorgeous Valentine card is from my dear friend Carol. I love the black and red, and the way she used the silver cord around the scalloped circle. The word love in the center is actually a die cut. Wasn't it clever of her to use a white doily for the background?

Thanks so much, Carol. This is the only hand made Valentine I received this year! You are so super sweet and thoughtful. And it means a lot that you thought of me!

This card is from my good friend Jackie. She is always so sweet about sending me cards.

I love the way she used the Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder on the background paper. The doodling around the snowman is such a nice touch, as is the snowflakes brad. What a great card!

Thanks so much to both of you. I've had a particularly difficult week with a lot going on here. Your cards made things seem much brighter, and definitely put a big smile on my face!

Tonight I'm working on something new for please be sure to check back tomorrow.

Until then...

awwww.....thanks for the compliments Michelle:) I'm happy that my card brought a smile to your face:) You're such a caring, generous friend and you deserve lots of love!
I love Jackie's card and how she whitened just a random few of the snowflakes! The embossing adds such a wintry touch! So cute!
Wishing you a better week ahead - I'm sorry things haven't been going well of late. Big hugs to you my friend:)
