A Crafty Resolution

 One of my resolutions for this year is not to wait until the last minute to make cards and projects for birthdays and holidays,  so this month's  Crafty Secrets Linky Party is the perfect opportunity to get started on Valentine's Day projects.   I used sweet images from Crafty Secrets digital Valentine  kit from last year. I layered these on a red lacy edged heart die cut along with some Spellbinder heart die cuts stamped with PTI's  Bitty Background Blocks.  The stamped birds are from Crafty Secrets Birds of Happiness.

For this second Valentine I also used Crafty Secrets Calendar stamp set and PTI's Wonderfully Whimsical stamp set.

While these are wonderful to give as they are, they would also be great embellishing a painted peat pot, or a tin pail, or a small paint can, even a paper beverage cup---all filled with chocolate, of course; I mean we are talking Valentine's Day. Stop by again to see where these hearts land.

Stamps: Calendar, Birds of Happiness (Crafty Secrets); Wonderfully Whimsical, Bitty Background Blocks(PTI)
Ink: Memento Black Tuxedo, Memento Summer Sky
Paper: Pure Poppy, Spring Rain (PTI); white (Georgia Pacific)
Other: Valentine Digital kit (Crafty Secrets), Classic Heart and Classic Heart Scalloped dies (Spellbinders), Nesting Doily Hearts (Lifestyle Crafts), heart buttons (Hobby Lobby)
