Pre-Valentine's Day Cards: for PAPER ISSUES "Valentine's Day Party" & Colorful Creations Challenges

This is my 1st contest to join at PAPER ISSUES and what a treat to be joining their "Valentine's Day Party!".  So far for the month of January,  I've created 2 Valentine's Day Cards for Colorful Creations which I'll also be entering into PAPER ISSUES contest.  Here they are:

The 1st Valentine's Day Card, I call "Twin Hearts Valentine's Card".  It is inspired by a sketch at Colorful Creation's Blog Challenge #7.  The sketch can also be found below.  Materials used are from the 'Sugar Cookie' Line of Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker courtesy of Janis Medina-Maghinay.

My 2nd Pre-Valentine's Card is entitled, "THE LOVE CARD".  I also entered this for the Colorful Creations' Greetings "Love on Fire" Challenge. Materials used are from the 'Sugar Cookie' Line of Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker courtesy of Janis Medina-Maghinay. Here is the card below:

When February comes, I can't wait to see what more Valentine's projects I could create for PAPER ISSUES.  I still have until February 14, 2010.  Till then.
