Valentine's, Birthday, and Welcome Cook

First up the Valentine's card I made for my daughter that's away at school. I used K&Co papers on a Papertrey vintage cream base. I used a heart stamp set(and the Love you sentiment) that I bought from Michael's. (I really want the one from Papertrey!) Scalloped edges with an EK Success punch and added jewels.

Next is the card I made for my son that is also away at school. Since it was after Valentines day that I sent it, I just made it a Happy today card. I used Polka Dot Basics and the flower from Around and About Sentiments.This card was for my daughter's friend that just turned 17. I used Papertrey's Everyday Button Bits and for the flowers, I used the birds feet upside down. And Background Basics Texts for the ground. I messed up and kind of double stamped the bottom but I like it.And here is a card for the new cook at my daughter's sorority house. (I made a card last week thanking the old cook who just quit and the girls wanted another one to welcome the new cook)This one used a Hero Arts stamp, DCWV paper. I paper pieced the apron and utensils again, colored with Copic markers and also used Souffle pens for added dimension.

Have a great day!
