Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Hope you're staying warm wherever you are today!  It's supposed to be a cold, cold week here in PA!!!  But the Retro Rubber Challenge will warm you up with its sweet theme:

Image may contain: text

I used one of my favorite Valentine stamps, Sealed With Love (2017), along with Swirly Bird (2016), to make my fun little ribbon-embellished love note card:

Crumb Cake, Real Red, Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White were my color choices; I used the Rectangle Stitched framelits to create my layers, adding a wreath from Crumb Cake and a little love note and envelope using the Love Note framelits:


I added a few speckles from Gorgeous Grunge (2013), and Real Red ribbons adorn the Crumb Cake wreath as well as the little envelope; the note pops up out of the envelope to show a wee little sentiment, and then I stamped a Valentine sentiment on the inside:

Gee, I wonder to whom this card will go?!! 💕 I hope you'll play along with our Retro Rubber challenge..just be sure your stamps are at least a year old!  Can't wait to see what you share with us at the Retro Rubber Challenge blog!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

It's so fun to make Valentine cards, isn't it? AND so fun to touch star fish! Have a blessed day because you are a blessing.

I've always loved red with kraft... and that SU has such a delicious name for kraft - crumb cake is a tastier term for it!
Darling little Valentine, for your darling little Valentine!

I love this awesome die set, it's another of my favorites that I haven't used in a while, thank you for the inspiration LeeAnn.
Love the adorable row of tiny hearts and the love packed little envelope.
Super sweet card.
