Welcome to the Valentines Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Lori Whitlock Valentine Blog Hop!

Just in case you are lost, this is the order of the blog hop!  You can find all the other cute ideas here:

Natalie - YOU ARE HERE!!!

I have a couple of things to share with you today! First of is a cute and easy set of valentine cards.  They come all in one set which is great!  I cut them out with Echo Park's Be Mine Collection, and put them together, added a couple of stickers, buttons and twine.  Easy Peasy! Right!  Well since I am giving these away to a sweet neighbor who has been helped me out while we had a giant snowstorm and my husband was out of town, I made her a cute tag from this tag set, added a couple stickers and a thank you sentiment and tied them with a bow in a cellophane bag.  Cute gift to give away....

OK, so I have one more quick idea that just came to me this morning... So it was a quickie, but still cute non the less.  My husband was cleaning out the garage last night and brought in a whole bunch of boards I was saving for "future" projects - well we are in the process of selling our house and relocating back to Utah, so he looked at me and said, you can't move these boards... so he placed them in the wood pile by our fireplace.  So as I am getting the fire going this morning, I was placing these in the fireplace and thought, how sad, these would make a cute valentines board, so I slyly took one from the pile, and went to town.  Here is the finished product - just think, this would have been ash later on today if I hadn't saved it!!!

Products used:

Wood board painted white and then a top coat of glitter paint

Heart cut out found here
