A Few Valentine's

 I have a few Valentin's Day cards using : Concord & 9th
 stamps and dies.
 One card is for one of my granddaughters and the other for my sweet husband. 

I used Barnwood Background  stamp on my husbands card to help it
look a bit masculine. It was my husband who encouraged me to
get the entire  Monogram Collection BUNDLE  , so happy I did!
I am also grateful! The heart came with the bundle. I used the letter X and the & for my sentiment.

Challenge #18: Watercolor

The Card Concept #86 {Old Fashioned Love}
I think my card is CAS.

On the card below I cut then watercolored the pieces with pearl colors from Kuretake watercolors .
 I used Magnolia Wreath Dies,  Cozy Up for the heart and Happy Words for the sentiment.

 Thanks for the visit. Hope you have a nice week!

 Ash Wednesday ( the beginning of Lent and a day of fasting) falls on Valentine's Day this year.
 We don't go out that day, any day but :)
