Made with Heart

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we have been busy making cards for our family and teachers.   This weeks challenge at Heart 2 Heart was to make something for someone you love.  Eventhough it is a day for sweethearts, we also like to send cards to our family to let them know how much we love them. 

If you follow my blog, you know that I like to use my children's art to create things.  These kid crafted cards are by no means meant to be pristine and gorgeous, but they are beautiful because they were made with little hands that were fully committed to the fun of creating.  I think they will be loved by the Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins who will receive these little gems.  

Using CTMH white card stock, the kids stamped hearts onto the cards using cut up toliet paper rolls in pink and red. 

 I stamped the simple phrase of "Be Mine" using CTMH Typeset Letters and mounted them on holiday red cardstock.  My daughter assembled and glued them on the cards. 

Some of the cards were very uniform.
 Some were a little random.
 A some were down right crazy!
None the less they were made with love and turned out looking pretty festive. 

Make sure to check out some more artwork "For the One/s You Love" at Heart 2 Heart.

Awwww - love how you get your kids into the act with creating too. They all did a lovely job and the toilette paper tubes for heart stamps is clever, clever, clever! Thanks for sharing your/your kids art with us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week. Give your kiddos a big high five from us!
