Quick & Easy - Alcohol Inked Valentines Day Cards

Hi Friends...

I hope you've all been enjoying the new year and staying warm. It's been terribly cold here this past week. We had wind chills in the -30's and -40's ~ no fun at all!! Someone needs to tell Mother Nature that this is Indiana, not Canada! BRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

I've been working away on the book...I have started working on the charms chapter projects ~ only 2 more chapters of projects to go after this plus writing chapter 11 and the appendix! I could probably be done by now but I am making 2-8 projects per technique which I wouldn't have to do but I want to show how the techniques can be used in more than one way. I know, I'm nuts but hey...that's me!

Since Valentines Day is less than a month away now I wanted to share a few quick and easy card ideas you can make using alcohol inks and a few ready made embellishments, fibers and a bit of stamping..... all of these cards are glossy cardstock bases btw.

V day - 1

V day - 3

V day - 2

Take care and have a wonderful week!
