Valentine's Day Card Swap

We had a Valentine's Day card swap at the Papertrey Ink Forum, and I sent a card and a few other things to Diane, who is so sweet and a forum regular. She is also a fellow member of the Papertrey Pals, which is a Papertrey Ink fan club and card making group.

Here is the Valentine's card I made, I Love You Rain or Shine. I used the PTI stamp set, Scattered Showers for the card. That set has the sweetest sentiments and is so fun to stamp with! Definitely recommend it. I stamped the outlined umbrellas on PTI patterned paper and trimmed them out. Then I added Red Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst PTI colors behind the image.

I also sent a package of Papertrey Ink samplers. I decorated a paper mache box with PTI Valentine's patterned paper and filled it with a sampling of PTI cardstock, many of the ribbons and a boxful of PTI buttons.

Here are the cardstock and ribbons. Don't you just love the rainbow of colors all lined up?

And here is the heart shaped box of PTI buttons. I tried to include a variety of sizes in each of the colors.

Diane emailed me and said that she liked what I sent to her. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all a sunshine-filled day! :)

I DID love receiving this package, everything was so perfectly LOVELY! Monica went way above and beyond and I loved every bit of it :) Monica, I know when I thanked you I forgot to mention the pretty boxes you made, I have them proudly displayed on my stamping table. Thank you again for EVERYTHING!

Wow. What a great gift. It is obvious you really put a lot of "love" and thought into it. It is raining at my house today and those little umbrellas on the card do seem to cheer things up! Really nice Monica.
