Create a Valentine They Will L♥ve to Display Year Round!

Hi everyone!
True :D  here today to share another simple but elegant project with you. 
How many times have you poured your heart into a Valentine, only to see it put away in  a drawer or *gasp* thrown in the garbage? Why not make them something this year that they will love to display? This sweet little heart can be hung on a wall, doorknob, or even on a rear view mirror in a car. :)

(Click on photos for a closer peek)

It was quick and easy to make using Spellbinder dies and Want2Scrap bling.

The designer cardstocks are some that I illustrated for Inky Antics. I have to say that it is super fun working with your own creations! :)

I stamped a sentiment on the back from my Inky Antic's #1115MC "Swirly Bird" clear stamp set. There is still plenty of room for a hand-written message as well.

I'm going to make one to hang in my craft room to remind me how important it is to tell those we love every day how important they are to us and how deeply we care for them. Thanks for the inspiration!
