Last-chance Valentines

This week's freebie at Too Many Ideas, PaperFacesDesigns' blog, is this cute heart-themed tag cut file. Therese had made a pumpkin tag in the Fall and I found myself in need of a heart-themed version, so I bugged her about it and ta-da! Ah, the power of the DT! I had planned on using the tag for a magnet card that I saw on the Fiskars blog, but with only a couple of days until Valentine's, it will have to wait for another time...the Moms already have cards in the mail!

The card on the right is a window version I made for fun; I freehand cut the window and stamped it all over with three shades of red. I love the effect you can get with Core'dinations cardstock and an emery board!

There are still a few Valentines-themed challenges that I wanted to try, so I made the tag on the left.
I had too much fun coloring this Penny Black stamp again.
