Penny Black Valentines

Next up for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge: some Penny Black images with a cat and mice:

Aren't they the cutest?  Here's a closer view:

The pink and white panels were cut with a Cricut Cartridge, "Elegant Edges".  The paper is at least 2 years old, from a pack called "All Seasons".  Red and pink Stickles were used on the heart box, cupcakes and to decorate the corners and DP.  The ribbon is from either WalMart or Michael's, and is probably 4 or 5 years old.  Guess I don't really make many Valentine's cards, do I?  (haha)

I think our daughter will like one of these.  Knowing me, I'd better get it ready to mail soon, or time will fly and I'll be late.

This brings my tally to 26 for the challenge.  I fiddled around today but only produced one card.  I like it, but I was just s-l-o-w today.  I'm giving it to my friend tomorrow at church so I'd best take a picture now...

Catch you later!

Darling cards! I love the card shape- so pretty. Also love the pink hearts in the corners as a fun accent to the fun image. I really love the challenge to not buy anything new! You are rocking it!
