Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge - Valentine's Cards



Hi everyone! I know it's really Tuesday, but man oh man, did it ever feel like Monday getting out of bed this morning! :)

Today's Jacksonbelle Embellishment challenge was to create a Valentine's Day card, so I created a bunch of mini-cards for my daughter's pre-k class (they measure 2 3/4" x 4" and fit into those tiny little gift card envies) using some scraps of Love Me Do patterned paper I had left over. There's room on the inside to attach a little square of chocolate and a place for my daughter to write her name. :)

Also, now through Thursday, Jacksonbelle Embellishments is offering *free shipping* on all orders (use code JBFREE during checkout).

Want to play along with us? Simply upload your Valentine card to your SCS gallery using the keyword JBEO89 or post a comment on the Jacksonbelle Embellishments blog linking to your blog. We' would love to see what you come up with! :)
