Be My Valentine

We had a wonderful visit with my family! We got to see my cousins, a few of my aunts, my grandparents, and my immediate family! It was great to be able to visit and spend some time with the people we love but do not get to see as often as we'd like. We didn't do anything especially noteworthy, just visited and shopped a little. Gotta love that. ;) I did make some valentines for my mom, dad, and brother. The cupcake card I showed the other day was for my mom.
This is the card I made for my brother. When each of us were born, my dad gave us a stuffed animal. I received a little panda, and Mike received a penguin. Since then, those have always been "our animals". Mike has always been a fan of penguins, so this Stampin' Up! penguin was perfect! Shown with the card is a Nestle Crunch Crisp bar that I just wrapped with some patterned paper I had lying around.
Stamps: Wild About You. Paper: Basic Black, Stamper's Select White. Ink: Palette Noir. Accessories: SU! Heart Punch (retired), Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Silver Brads.
Okay, this is the card I made for my dad. Very simple, and very quickly executed. I didn't have much time with all the getting ready! I had this Rock Star (DCWV?) paper, and since Dad is GREAT at playing the guitar, I thought it was perfect! Can you tell what the justjohanna "you rock" sentiment is stamped onto? It's a guitar pick! (Not a Hershey's kiss!)
Stamps: you rock (justjohanna). Paper: Basic Black, Rock Star DP, Going Gray. Ink: Black. Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Silver Brads.

Have a happy Monday!
