Long week, short post for FWF

Long nights without much rest
Doesn't make me think the best.
Seems I'm looking older with wrinkles
instead of having eyes that twinkle.

Wish I could find more time to scrap,
all I do is deal with flaps (fooled you, didn't I?)
Happy the week is almost done,
Maybe next Friday I'll rock this one!

OK, enough poetry from me.  Guess that won't be published anytime soon! On to the cards:

This first one is super simple.  I always make a bunch of Valentine cards, then hand them out to the residents in the nursing home where I work.  This will probably be one of them I use this year because I can whip them out really quickly.

 It used Carta Bella kraft card stock, and two Unity stamps set, Susan Weckesser's a Little Grunge Love, and the Liz Hick's alphabet set.

I cut this next card out on the Silhouette.  It's a double slider card.

 And, here's a close up of the stamped image from the Unity Snowflake Kisses set:

 I used Echo Park Playground cardstock on the slider card.

The last card is also cut out on the Silhouette.  Then, I just added a couple of embossed hearts from the Susan Weckesser A Little Grunge Love set.

I used Echo Park cardstock on this card and CTMH ink and embossing powders.

That's it!  Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for visiting today!
