Valentines for the Boys

Sorry for the delay in posts... but I warned you that may happen! The good news is that today we officially have a contract on our house. That's pretty amazing considering we haven't even listed it yet! Some friends of ours are interested in buying it, so let's all keep our fingers crossed and hope that it turns out as planned... in which case, we may be Denver-bound a little earlier than originally planned. But that's okay - we truly figured that the hardest part about this whole process was going to be selling this house. The Lord must really want us in Denver, ya think?

As promised, here are the Valentines I made for my three wonderful sons:

I took the basic format of the card we made at my Valentine Workshop (you can see it here). This first one was for Mason, using Kraft cardstock and Mellow Moss ribbon (you'd think it should be Artichoke, but the Moss actually matched the paper better)...

The one below was for Morgan, using Sage Shadow cardstock and ribbon...

And this last one was for baby Maddox, again using Kraft cardstock, but with the Kraft taffeta ribbon instead of grosgrain...

All three of these used the glorious new Designer Series Paper called To The Nines. It's a thicker, cover-weight cardstock, and it's very yummy to work with! For the bear, I used the Confetti White cardstock along with an Aquapainter and the ink pad lids. Such a fun set to color!
