Oh yes, while we might have to wait for another Valentine's Day for a full year, I still feel love in the air... don't you? Besides, there's ALWAYS time to share love!
As far as the love theme goes, there's no other collection that I would reach for, but Love Nest. It's such a versatile collection, with an assortment of bold and subtle patterns and a wonderful vintage touch.
I simply adore combining textures, and that's what I was trying to achieve on my first card. The homespun touch of doily lace and velvet ribbon is contrasting nicely with the shimmer of rub-ons and Glitzers. Decadent is good :)

For my next card, I decided on a calmer and more stylish look. True to my style, I couldn't pass on a big fat bow, but what I really love about this card, is how well the Rub Ons: birdcage and sentiment, look together. Isn't it a match made in heaven??
