We between yesterday and today I made these two cards for a card exchange I participate in. I like the top card but I am not sure I will be able to use it in the exchange. I wanted to use ribbon in the card but I am not sure I like the knot. I just hate to cut a slit and put the ribbon through. I just can never get the slit to look clean and then the card looks funny to me. I also had a hard time deciding what to put in the circles. I needed the card to be a adult card and I am thinking this is more kids like, but I used designer paper so I might I have to use this card in that category instead. Tell me what you think. The second card is pretty obviously a Valentine card and I am happy with how it turned out at well. Gluing the little red hearts on was a bit more time consuming than I had thought it would be but it worked out. It is kind of funny but the heart punch actually belongs to my 5 year old daughter Jouette. She really like to make paper things with Mommy so I have bought her a few things here and there. It is kind of sad how often I borrow things from her from time to time.

Both cards are adorable! The Valentine one is definitely my favorite. As for the ribbon on the first one if you have a hole punch you could punch two holes one in from the top and one in from the bottom then you could thread it through instead of slits. Either way they are adorable, I really like them!
