WOYWW #237...Happy Valentine's Day..

Ha ha sorry to confuse you! But that's what it feels like here...

Before I tell you about it, let's do the important stuff. Today it is time for WOYWW...don't know what I am talking about? Get on over to Stamping Ground and meet our wonderful host Julia and the rest of the gang for the weekly global desk nose..

I am deep into Valentine's Day cards for you can see from my desk - partially made cards, hearts, heart punches mini and small, Be My Valentine stamp, mini trimmer, glasses, tweezers, ATG, pencil, stack of completed cards and papers in Valentine hues!

Here is a proper photo of the cards you can see on my desk...

OWH - Be My Valentine
I used an idea that I saw on Pinterest, I loved the idea of a plain card, with a simple sentiment and a busy focal point. Kasia Curry is the card maker and she makes such beautiful things, I love her work. I wanted to credit her, so she knows I am not wilfully stealing!

Finally before this post becomes epic..I just want to say thank you to all of you for being such wonderful blog buddies during this strange and exciting 2013!! Have a wonderful Christmas wherever you are.



  1. What a fab card for OWH, you are very good to send cards out to the troops. Thanks for sharing, Marry Christmas and a Happy new Year Tracy #41

  2. Ooh I love your Valentines Cards Claire… they are beautiful designs… I love the bold colours - they are perfect CAS! :-)
    Hope you have a Wonderful Christmas and New Year!
    Big hugs
    Sue xx

  3. Yes, Claire, that was a shock! I can't even bear to look at Valentine cards or think of making them until after Christmas, nor do I like doing Christmas until after Thanksgiving ... you get the idea. My brain just doesn't allow that kind of multi-holidaying. But you are a good woman for making them for OWH, and I know they need them well ahead of time. Your CASEd card is a real stunner!!

    Happy WOYWW and thank you for coming to visit me and leave some love! (Glad you heard from Tracey!) I wish you and your hubs the happiest of holidays!! Hugs, Darnell #10

  4. Hello again, Claire! I'm so jealous that you are working on Valentine's cards already! I am so done with Christmas cards. I think the season just lasts too darn long. Maybe you've inspired me to bring out the red and pink next WOYWW! Happy Holidays to you as well.

  5. I really like your Valentine's Day cards. #6

  6. I am impressed good for you for doing the cards for the troops, I am sure they will be happy to use them. It has been a lovely time popping in on you this year and you have never ceased to surprise me with your beautiful cards and well the desk LOL I wish you and your family all the best for Christmas and New Year. Anytime you want to come and play and stay you are most welcome. But I don't think today is a good day it is going to be 40 degrees here today and that is hot.......

    Merry Christmas & Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 15

  7. Good on you for supporting OWH your cards look fabulous. It was a shock to see the title of your post as I am still in Christmas Mode here. Wishing you and your family a Wonderful Christmas and New Year! Danie #37

  8. It must be funny to create valentine cards right now in the middle of 'holiday season', but I guess hearts just fit in with every feast.. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier... and for mentioning the word 'brayer' - that was indeed the word I was looking for and could not remember (and when you ask me next week... I'm afraid I've 'lost the word' again... some words do that to me!) Happy woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #55

  9. If I ever clear my desk this week, it will be to start on some Valentines stuff...scrapbooking yearning for a change!
