One Sweet Valentine (or Two)

I got my Doodlebug Cream & Sugar paper pad and matching Odds & Ends over at the Cutting Cafe Shop and thought maybe I should start using it instead of hoarding it in my usual fashion and I had a leftover Sweet Word Window from our Cutting Cafe Inspiration project the other day and I felt they'd be perfect together!  And they were!  I love to use up leftover stuff!  I had cut it in black first and then decided I wanted it to be another color so I left this one for later.  All I had to do was open up the file I'd saved in my Cricut Design Space and cut out the word "Sweet" in whatever paper I wanted to use... easy!

Aren't these two adorable!  The coffee cup, donut and heart were from the Odds & Ends pack and the sentiment is from the paper pad.

So what was super fun and weird was I had bought these inexpensive sequins long ago and they came in a little acrylic package with little indents for each color... you know... the kind that when you open it they're hard to store but of course I didn't really have anything at the time so I'd opened it and at some point they all spilled out and mixed up in the container I had them in... so when I finally did organize my sequins rather than separating them I really mixed them all up and thought... it's a pretty mix... I'll use it for something... and here they are... the perfect colors for that donut paper... awesome!

And I used my new Conversation Heart Stamp Set by Thia Gielow from The Cutting Cafe Shop as well for the Friend word which I embossed in black on the Clear Cardstock before I added it to my shaker.

Oh... and then Slim thought he could help show off this Sweet card... and since he's one of my Valentines for sure I figured I'd let him... 

Yeah... at this point the card really doesn't matter... and speaking of Slim... he's waiting for his treat before i go get ready for work so thanks for stopping by again!  Hoping to make a few more Valentines before the big day so come back soon!
