The Tax Man Cometh... Soon

Howdy - Adrienne from Eagle Canyon Arts and tickled pink to be here.  Many thanks to Sheila for including me in the Sassy Lady design team. 

January and February are supposed to be months for catching up and catching one's breath.  Well, THAT didn't happen around here.  The minute the new year begins, papers start flying in preparation for (gulp) taxes, which means number crunching and less time for playing in the craft room! 

Here are the cards I made for Valentine's Day this year for my grandchildren, using the Spring Holiday Card Cartridge (from 2011, still available on some websites).  I cut them both at 4.3" high and also cut the white backs at 4.3" high.  These were very simple cards to make and I know the children will be delighted with them.
 
For the "grown ups", I made a different card using the Paper Lace cartridge.  I also embossed the card base with my Sizzix and various embossing folders.
 
 Using a sponge dauber (Z726), I inked the edges with cranberry (Z116).  The inside greeting is simply "Happy Valentine's Day" from last year's CTMH January Stamp of the Month (retired). 

Thanks for joining me on this project.  If you have any questions or comments, please share them with me.  Adrienne
