The Cutting Cafe - Valentines' Day and a Giveaway & WOYWW85

Ah, grade school...the time for recess (I miss it!) chasing boys on the playground, (only if they chased you first, of course!) and young love but ONLY on Valentine's Day (the rest of the time boys had cooties)!

Valentine's were simple affairs with maybe a bit of glitter.  If you did find one with glitter, well that one went to a VERY special person...maybe it was a special boy but it could have been your BFF.

The Cutting Cafe is having a monthly inspiration challenge featuring Valentine projects made by the team.  I chose the adorable cards made by team member Stephanie Serrano as my inspiration.  She made the cutest cards using the adorable Animal and Bug Love Set.  I decided to make my cards just the ones in grade school.  Flat and blank on the backside for a "TO" and "FROM". :-)  I made a few glittery and sparkly for that special person or two as well.






Hurry, hurry....The Cutting Cafe is having a giveaway and she's picking a winner TODAY so hurry over and comment to win!

Here's the set in progress for WOYWD 85.  Head on over to Julia's and see what else is on the workdesks this week!
