XO Friends & Letters

Lots to share today! It's our last XO Love challenge at Caardvarks today. Create a Friendship card and link it back to 'Varks for a chance to win a stamp set from Queen Kat Designs and a Caard prize pack. I had a great time making the card above. Who knew that papers from the dollar store could make a card look so good? I also love the two types of fibers, especially the can-can fringe. Thanks to my buddy Carolyn for those! Details for the card can be found here.

I made this layout based on a PageMaps sketch by Becky Fleck. Ian was the lucky recipient of lots of Valentines, mostly from family members and some sistas at SBO, at his school party last week. This sketch is for the February contest at Basically Scrapbooking. Details for this layout are here.
