MFT Valentine Flopsey for VLV challenge

This is for my 6 year old son to give his valentine from school (which he's already lined up, mind you!  LOL)
Using the Viva la Verve! January week 3 sketch challenge:
I used Valentine Flopsey by My Favorite Things, paper piecing and popping up the heart he's holding.  I used some of the tiny heart stamps from Verve's Love Notes set around him with red flat-backed pearls in the centers, as well as Verve's Jotted Heart Die (the black heart peeking out from behind the main panel) with liquid pearls.  Some wrinkled shabby ribbon from Bluebird Lane on Etsy.  Papers are BoBunny Crazy Love.

Valentine, Be Mine for VLV challenge

I've had to slack off a bit.  School this semester is KICKING MY BUTT!  But I worked hard this week, and so treated myself to a few hours to work on this card the other evening.

For the Viva la Verve! January week 2 sketch challenge:  

Used the fabulous label stamp from Verve's Sweet Treats and cut out with the Classy Label Die, with a sentiment from Verve's Love Notes.
Papers are BoBunny's Crazy Love.
Shabby wrinkled ribbon from PrairieBird Boutique on Etsy, rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.
The tiny rose was cut using MFT's new mini rolled roses die.

Love Story for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve January week 1 sketch challenge:
In addition to Valentine's Day, my anniversary is in February.  So I'm not sure which one this will be for, but with my husband's birthday in February, too, I thought I'd get started!
I love this sentiment from Verve's Love Story, and the frame (which  I silhouette cut, along with the tiny bird).  {BTW, I would LOVE Julee to make a die to cut this frame!!  hint, hint!}
I used BoBunny's Crush papers.
Some ribbon by MFT and black brads.
Simple and quick.  To fit in a regular envelope, I made my card 3"x5.5"
