Valentines Cards

I am sitting here watching the "Obama Express" and I am so excited to be able to share in this moment in history. I decided my 5 days off would be spent in the comforts of my scrapbook room while watching the entire "Obama/Biden Affair-Inauguration-History Event".

I am also having a very productive scrapping weekend. I started making cards yesterday, Friday.......and I am doing it using "my stash". I am on a "self-imposed shopping ban" and I have to say....."I am soooooooo proud of me" date $0 dollars spent on new scrapbook stuff. Wow....that's 17 days....spend free.....It also helps NOT to go into the Craft stores .......I think, I am living vicariously through my sisters/brothers on the Cricut message board(Hehe).....They have been finding some neat stuff and bargains....I have toooo much I have to use.....Soooo.....I am just enjoying their stuff via MB......But anywho are the Valentines cards I completed....I have not purchased any new stamps either ....And I am sooo loving that Martha Stewart Valentines Border Punch and I wanted the new $1 inkadinkado stamps....but.....I am using what I have....I also used Nestabilities (Heart Shapes) for most of the cards that I completed: So..... how did I do "Scrappin my OLD stash"?...........Oh, the cardstock is last years "K & Co "Smitten"....Okay, now I need to go "CREATE" some more.........I'll be back.....

They are all so nice, I really can not pick a favorite. I do know looking at your cards makes me want to update my supplies. LOL

Great Job on all your cards

These are ALL just gorgeous, I think the first one has to be my favourite though. I am with you on the ban thing, I am really trying hard this year to use up what I have :)
