Happy Valentine's Day! Popping in with a quick (because I'm not 'talking' very much here) post to share a few of the Valentine cards I made recently. Hard to believe how quickly *this* occasion has come and gone; Easter will arrive in a blink!
This year, due to Covid restrictions, my niece and nephew weren't able to give out Valentine cards/tags in the 'traditional' way, which means I didn't have opportunity to go-to-town with making oodles of cards/tags for them. Big downer! On the plus side, our neighbour here in Cochrane is a teacher and, because she is busy with teaching and working on her Master's Degree, she asked if I'd make some for her class. YES! Her request certainly filled the 'wild crafting' gap I was missing! It took a while to decide what to make for her 23 students, as I wanted something a 'bit' different from the usual. A quick visit to Shopping Our Stash Challenge #438~Love is in the Air had me sorting through my bins and....
I found my answer: Valentine gnomes! The best part: Vicki loves gnomes, as do her students, so a perfect match! All the gnomes (Simon Says Stamps) have pink clothes, a varied-in-colour/pattern hat and sparkle paper beards. The hearts are from a Concord & 9th turnabout. I put a white die cut heart on the back of each for Vicki to write a message and...off they went. Hope the kids enjoyed them as much as I did making them!
Here's a sample...
