Gal Pal Valentine Love!

Hi friends! I just love Valentines Day <3 All those gorgeous reds and pinks together with words of love! We really don't go out on Valentines Day, but rather make it a fun family LOVE day. The girls love getting Valentines and a little treat and I think it's a special day to show those around you how much you care. This year I really wanted to make some Valentines for a few special ladies in my life. I'm so thankful for all my awesome friends, and this was a small way to say thanks to a few of them!
I layered some pretty papers, edged with Distress Inks, added some diecut circles stamped with these gorgeous Dina Wakely girl faces, which I coloured with my new Jane Davenport coloured pencils (love!!) and added some sequins, lace and popped up some fussy cut flowers. Ta-Da!
 Here's a look at the inside, stamped with an older CTMH stamp from my stash with a 'friend' sentiment on it. I used the awesome lips stamp from the Be Mine Pretty Cute Stamp set on the envelope - SWAK!!

Paper - Carta Bella, AC Maggie Holmes
Stamps - Dina Wakely, Lawn Fawn, Pretty Cute Stamps, CTMH
Embellishments - Lace, Sequins by SpiegelMom Scraps
Distress Inks, coloured pencils by Jane Davenport

Thank you so much for stopping by! I'd love to know if you're making Valentines for your gal pals?!
