Valentine Cards 2011

I made a few Valentine cards and wanted to share with you all.  I have so enjoyed crafting again and it was so much fun doing this card.  The easel card ended up being 6 x 8 inches.

I also learned a bit more about some of the stuff that goes with Breast Cancer removal while making this card.  I got a small paper cut in my left arm which is where they removed some of my lymph nodes.  My under arm area ended up swelling a bit from that.  I will now certainly remember to take the advice they gave me to be careful with my left arm and hand seriously when scrapping.  Who would have thought something so minor would make a difference.  Over time this may not even happen, but as I am still healing I will listen.  I have a cute little bracelet (NOT) that I wear now that has a medical emblem on it and says No Pin Pricks or PB - Left Arm. How is that for some fancy jewelry!!! 

O-well, when I think of how it could have ended up... I am totally Blessed and thank God every second of every day.  These little bumps in the road certainly make us stronger and maybe even a bit wiser.

Anyway... Here is the Valentine Card I came up with.
