Racoon and Beaver Valentine Cards

Good morning friends

It's Throwback Thursday here on my blog and I have a couple of Valentine's to share. I really want to get those pictures filed and not hold onto them until next February. :-)

This 'Clean and Simple' Valentine was made for my parents to give our son. I had done a Valentine with both the Racoon and Heart previously, but had stamped and coloured two of each so decided to assemble them to make a second card. This one is a different layout and not going to the same family as that first card so it all works.

I had just received my new Elizabeth Craft Designs order and wanted to play with Els new Curvy Ovals. I'd had my eye on them when they were first released, so I happily added them into my Spring order and they are FUN! The Valentine papers were on my stamping table so I decided to add a Baker the Beaver character (love him!!) and get a Valentine made for next year. So technically this one doesn't qualify for 'Throwback Thursday', but hey - it's my blog and I can bend my own guidelines. And now I can get that photo filed as well.
