MDS Blog Hop - Something New!

Welcome 2012!  I hadn't planned on taking a hiatus from blogging, but it happened anyway.  What is it about the new year that makes it feel like a fresh start?  Maybe it's all the hype about New Year's resolutions.  I'm not much for the resolutions - I prefer to set small goals throughout the year - but I am feeling the desire to attack this year with more energy and purpose.  And I have to say, I like it.  I haven't felt like this for awhile, so I welcome the change.
Now, on to the reason you stopped by - the fun MDS projects!  We were challenged to use something new and that wasn't too hard - Stampin' Up! has been putting out some adorable downloads the last few weeks.  I want them all!  But for now, I had to pick just a few.  We did just finish Christmas after all.
We're doing a Super Saturday (a giant craft day) for our activity this month at church and I needed some Valentine cards to go along with this adorable envelope we're making.  I found some free downloads online and could have used those, but then I saw all the fun Valentine's downloads and decided that I would be making my own.  They're too cute not to!  Here's my version:
And back:

Each card is 4 x 2.5, so they're small, but this way I was able to fit 8 on a page.  They're perfect for just a quick little note to my kids each day.
Here are the downloads I used:

Until next week!
