Not one, not two, but three

Hi everyone,
It's day 14 and as of right now I'm at Challenge card 15 and 17 cards for the year. I did 2 challenges today. It's really snowing hard. You can't see a thing out the window. So why not spend the day making cards. Today I've made 2 valentine's and a thank you card. Here are the challenges I used.

The friday mashup wants us to mash up A thank you card, with designer paper.

Clean and Simple has this really nice sketch. I'm going to love using this one over and over.
I put these 2 challenges together and came up with this card.

All my papers are retired in this one. I used Close to Cocoa, Rose, white, and the pattern paper I'm not sure but I think it's The Angel Company. My sentiment is from The Angel Company and the flower is from Stampin Up, the Summer Solstice Set. The oval frame is from Sizzix and I used a Cuddlebug embossing folder to emboss it. The small piece of twine just happens to match the Close to Cocoa paper. I hope you like this one. Hold on there's more.
I made two valentine cards for my grandsons and I used the Colour Q challenge again. I  just love these colors.

My middle grandson loves cats. So this one will be for him. The pocket is from Stampin Up. I found the tiniest piece of Going Grey paper. It barely fit. My hearts are punched out using Stampin Up's heart punches. I don't have a clue who makes this cat stamp. But gosh it's the cutest thing. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. And on this one I used a Sizzix embossing plates. I don't like these. I think they are going into the get rid of box. I also used more S.U.  punches, the window punch and modern label punch.

For this one I used the same challenge. I can't tell you who's stamps these are. I'm not one for keeping the packages. All my stamp sets go into CD cases. 
This card is for my youngest grandson. He has a big dog so this is a good image for him

Now my valentine cards are done and I can move on. I hope you like my cards. I'll be adding another one or two tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by. Please come back again.
