Valentines makes

I've decided this year to send a Valentine to my mum and my sister. So here they are!

This one for my Mum - she loves blue.

This one is for my sister. Peace stamped on to acetate and embossed with distress inks, then layered onto a patterned paper. You can't see the acetate in the pic but it gives a lovely shiny finish.

Haven't made one for my husband... he's always around, so it's hard to find an opportunity! I have promised to make my nephew a pirate card so perhaps if I can find some pirate stamps I can make my husband's valentine with that - he'd love it!

I'm entering both for the following challenges:
Chocolate, coffee and cards - Thinking of you/missing you
Come and Get It Challenges - Love is in the air
Sweet Stampin' - The one I love
Allsorts - free and easy
I'm also entering just the second card for St Lukes Charity Cards - Love and lace

Thanks for stopping by :)
