Happy Valentine and my First Christmas Card for the Year

Hello all my lovely friends! I have a couple of quick posts today, cards I completed a week ago, but just haven't taken the time to post. I created a Valentine card for a friend featuring the lovely Tilda Hiding Heart from the new Love Collection. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from BG's Kissing Booth collection.

The inside of the card is a simple, no-fuss design!

This is my first Christmas card for the year....trying to make at least four a month! The background scene is an Alota stamp and the image is called Christmas Tilda. The inside of this card is also quite simple:

I have not been able to get around to all the blogs and leave comments because I am dealing with pressing family matters right now, but I will be there as soon as I can. Hugs, Christina


  1. Oh no, pressing family matters? I do hope everything is ok!
    Your cards are beautiful! I love the super sparkly heart Tilda is pretty! And the other is a blue wonder! She looks fab there perched on the frame! You should link her up at the new Stamp and Create Magnolia challenge! :D
    Seriously though, I do hope everything is ok!

  25. Both cards are fabulous, but I have to say I'm more partial to "pink", so just loving the valentine card - so feminine and love all the girly embellishments. Gorgeous, as always!!

  26. Ohhh I like, I like very much ... just ever so pretty in every way and your embellishments always look 110% perfect.

  27. Beautiful cards my friend. Love the first one with the pretty PINKS and the glittered heart. The second one is beautiful too with that pretty colored background stamp!


  28. Gorgeous cards Christina, the new Magnolias are so sweet, and you have colored her beautiful!
    Hugs Kjersti:)

  29. Okay, I am really bumming out now cause I am convinced I am not getting your posts. I have just missed too many!! Your valentine is lovely - there is that wonderful heart trim on the bottom again. My goodness - four Christmas cards a month and this one is absolutely grand. Oh Christina - what am I going to do when I get my little goats -- I already run out of time as it is. I am going to check on my subscription to your blog.
