Creative Card Crew-A family Valentine

Here's a fun little idea....
So many times when a card is received at a home with small children, the children want to take the card and hide it away in their 'treasure' box. So what happens when there is more than one child? lol

I decided to use my Creative Card Crew challenge DT project to make a 'family Valentine'! This card will arrive with little "hug cards" inside! This sweet Little Paper Shop puppy love image is perfect for writing kids names on the hearts! Too fun! I hope the kids will enjoy receiving their own little Valentines!

I hope you will have an opportunity to play along with us at Creative Card Crew and make a Valentine, it is a fortnightly challenge! Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Crafty Addict! and they are offering this lovely RAM stamp to the winner!


Checkout the awesome designs by the rest of 'the Crew'...
