I have never really embraced Valentine's Day until this year. Don't get me wrong, I love to receive flowers and a card from my husband, but it wasn't until I had children that I started enjoying all the holidays the year brings. I love the decorations, the cards and the candy. I love the way we can turn any occasion into a celebration.
This is the card I will send to one of my sisters in Australia. I doubt she reads my blog, so she won't know it's coming, and it will hopefully be a big surprise.
I used the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (love, love, love them) and then, if you can tell from the photo, I used strips of ribbon to make the heart. I just looked for all my little bits that I keep in a jar because I can't bear to part with them. I like to give everything a second chance :)
