Valentine in Non-Traditional Colors – by Holly McMillen

I think it’s fair to say that I’m pretty much a traditional girl; however, when it comes to colors, I love to go the non-traditional route – always have! So, of course, Holly’s Valentine in soft peaches and light tealy blues has captured my heart! Not to mention the beautiful lacy hearts and that fabulous bow!  Take a look and I think you’ll agree:

Once again, I’m smitten – totally smitten!

Loving those tiny hearts floating around – some are die cut and some are enamel.

And I {{{ love }}} that beautifully scripted Happy Valentine’s Day – so, so pretty!

There is just so much to love here — can’t seem to pull my eyes away from this one!

Holly makes tons of Valentine cards each year. She boxes them up and her hubby takes them to his construction site to sell for her. I just love the visual of all these rough, tough construction types flipping though her box of cards and making their choices — LOL.  And can you just image the delight from their ladies when they get cards of this caliber from their guys. All the way around, it’s a wonderful thing and it just makes me smile!

You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.
