Love is in the air

We are trying to be festive over here - the kids doing valentines, making sugar cookies and me making some Valentines cards!  I created these for the Lily Bee blog post today using the new Lovely line! 

This one i did for the Studio Calico blog challenge to use Ruffles on a card or layout - i gathered a piece of tulle with a tape runner onto the card, adhered a strip of paper over the center and then sewed the edges to hold it in place better.  I had to trim a bit of it off so it didn't hang over the card but i like how it turned out!
On this one i used the same ribbon i tied the bow with to make the flower center - it had wire in it so it was easy to gather and make the little rosette - i stuck a brad in the center and then used the to pins to hold the flower together.  

This last card i used my silhouette to cut the hearts and that cute frilly border.  I really need to use it more - I LOVE IT.  

I have one more card to share - this one i did with the GCD's new Homespun Chic line by Melody Ross which i adore............the cupcake and letters i cut with the silhouette! 
Now a i will leave you with a few pictures from our cookie making last night - more licking the knife and eating cookies than actually frosting them - but they were yummy! horrible smiles from the boys - like get that camera away from me i'm eating.
This last one is Baylee modeling the Valentines Dress that Grandma Cole gave her.  She did her own hair, put on the sunglasses and thought she was pretty darn cute!
I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys the weekend with loved ones - Dean and I decided not to go out - i'm sure we will just watch a chick flick and hang out.  It seems to revolve more around the kids these days - fun dinner, treats and lots of loves!
