My daughter and I made a bunch of these for her to hand out as Valentine's to her classmates. The hardest part was making sure the Cricut cut the image right in the center of the card. It took a few tries but we finally got it right.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed on the bottom of the card.

Here is my attempt at making some homemade glue dots from hot glue. This wasn't my idea so I can't take the credit, I did try making some other shapes and the hearts turned out pretty well I think. These were dried on a sheet from a used up sticker pack, then placed in a ziploc bag with die and dried again on a paper plate.
Dye I used was Adirondack, alcohol ink, acid free, quick drying, pearl, and copper, the red is something old I had on hand no name.

This card was simple but still special, these cards were purchased at Archivers in the 1.99 Hot Spot, (5 in the pack) the square is an open area so you can insert whatever theme you prefer. SU back ground border, heart was embossed and then crystal glaze added fof a 3-D affect. Pink card stock added to the inside for writing a special message.

Cute little Valentine's Hedgies, I also love little hedge hogs, and any stamps I find with hedge hogs I just have to have.
The Hedgies are stamped, embossed, colored with watercolor pencils, and the hearts are adorned with crystal glaze. On the inside of the card I added a heart to coordinate with the one on the front of the card.

These are a few examples of cards I recently made using my Cricut, which I have been enjoying. Sentiment is stamped and embossed, the cupcakes and ice cream cones are embellished with crystal glaze and stickles, and then adhered with pop dots. Very simple, and fun
I save everything since I started scrapbooking. As you can see from this layout I used the hospital bracelets from the birth of our daughter, the calendar page that was on the wall in my hospital room and then I had the nurse stamp our daughter's foot prints right on a page in my book. I love this layout because it has so many memories for us, again simple and easy...
