Vivacious Valentines!


Hi readers! I recently emailed the lovely Wendy Sue Anderson, excited about the newest Valentine release from Doodlebug! I inquired if she could come up with a special card or 2 to share with our readers to help reiterate how darn cute this collection is, and, boy oh boy, did she deliver! Check out these 4 beautiful examples! Wow! Who’s ready to get crafting?



I always love creating handmade cards to share with my family and friends – it’s like giving them a little piece of my heart every time I give them something I’ve created myself.  That’s why I think it’s most appropriate to give handmade cards on Valentine’s Day – the day of love!  This year I’m creating some fun Valentine’s Day cards with Doodlebug’s “Sweetheart” Collection.  Here’s a look at the first batch I created!

Mixing and matching different elements from the collection is the easiest way to make each card sweet and unique.



Although I like creating random sized cards, there’s something refreshing about a batch of standard-sized cards like these (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).  There’s plenty of room to embellish, lots of space to write a heartfelt greeting, and they fit in a standard-size envelope – perfect for mailing or hand delivery!  I hope you find inspiration for creating handmade cards for those closest to your heart this Valentine’s Day!




Thanks for reading today and thanks so much to Wendy for being our guest today!
