Valentine love hearts adventures

Yes, I know I'm a day late for Valentines' but I'm not really a dollar short - the hearts challenge at Cards in Envy, the love challenges at CASology and House of Cards, and the Valentine challenges at The Pink Elephant Challenge and The Watercooler Challenge are still current.  And, I didn't want to post my sweetheart's card before he had a chance to see it.  He doesn't read my blog often - ok, only once that I know of - but you never know, this might have been the week ;)
stamp set - Teeny Tiny Wishes; ink - Real Red; card stock - Silver Glimmer, Red Glimmer, Whisper White, Real Red; punches - Sweetheart, Word WIndow, Modern Label; Big Shot with Decorative Dots embossing folder
I'm not going to try to take any credit for this sublimely clean and simple card, it's the design my upline brought to our team meeting shoebox swap.  

This next card, which I think is the focal point of the Stick It Down card sketch, was the shoebox swap from another team member:
stamp set - {well, I'm embarrassed to admit I have no idea - anyone?}; ink - Melon Mambo; card stock - Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive; pumches - Itty Bitty Accents, 7/8" Scallop Circle, 1" circle, 1/2" circle
I thought about putting it on an A2 card front so it would more nearly match the sketch, but it's just too darn cute this way, so I left it alone.

Hi Kathe, I don't blame you for not wanting your card seen before Valentine's. You're right, this might have been the week. I love both cards, especially the one you've entered in our challenge. What a great bunch of bright and happy hearts! Thanks so much for entering the Watercooler Challenge.
