Valentine Card ideas & discards -day 34

All day yesterday I was busy cleaning up - my studio space, our storage shed and boy did we have a lot of trash and collected a  bunch of stuff for our upcoming yard sale. I had a bunch of stuff that I was saving for my kids - way to much stuff - like baby blankets and onsies that had so many stains on them - I can't imagine what from. I mean, really are they gonna want stained baby clothes? Probably not so I kept the good stuff and junked the stained stuff, kept the artwork they made and wrote on junked the class work and stuff that just had their name on it - you know the things they come home with daily???
Another thing I had a lot of were cards. I've been with my husband for 15 years and we have 4 kids - so there were a billion {just kidding but wow) cards for birthdays, anniversaries and pregnancies, mothers & fathers day - you get the jist!!! I kept them all...I Know more stuff but those are super special. So here is another one to add to the bunch -

SHHHHH---- this one is for my husband...

Underneath the paper rose above the is a small tag that I punched and stamped with the words
I {heart} you

or I could give him this one....another small tag (Martha stewart) that says YOU & ME
Hm...choices, choices...maybe I'll give him both [wink wink]
hope you are keeping your craft ON
 I am linking these cards up to the following parties:
CRAFTY SENTIMENTS - love is in the air
FAN-TASTIC TUESDAY - anything goes
FLOURISHES - red & love
LADY BUG CRAFTS - to the one I love
SHOPPING OUR STASH - love me tender
SWEET STAMPS - pink red & white

There is something so therapeutic about organizing and cleaning out, isn't there?! My youngest (of three) is almost 26 so I have been there with the "save everything" phase and I also got OVER it much like you did on your cleaning spree….ok, enough rambling! Your cards about both great, Tina and I bet hubby would love them BOTH! I love the xo heart and pennants off the side of that design, very pretty! Thanks for sharing these with us at SweetStamps.com for our color challenge. Good luck to you! ~Donna K
