Card crazy (and a giveaway!)

Happy Monday!!
I went a little card crazy with the Truly Scrumptious kit!!
I have several birthdays (not mine but friends & family! ha!) and wedding showers coming up.
So I am in need of birthday and lovey-dovey cards!
Here is what I've done so far...

{do not ask me why i cannot get a crisp picture of that card! the colors are funky! so strange!}

You know we are having an online Valentine's crop over on the message board all week, right??! Well as part of the crop I posted a couple of Valentine's cards.
Valentine's cards for grandparents to be more specific!
One of my grandmothers used to send my brothers & I each a card with $10 in it every Valentine's Day.
Hey, $10 was a lot of money for a kid!
And I loved it!
So ever since I have been making cards, I have tried to at least send her a card on Valentine's Day to return the favor.
Now I have a couple of cards to choose from!
I wonder which one she will like best??

If you are still reading this, you are in luck!
To kick things off this week I am giving away this c-u-t-e envelope album kit from the Cupcake Love line by Little Yellow Bicycle!!
All you have to do is say HI! by leaving a comment here!
And I will pick a random winner at the end of the crop!
*****
Now head on over to the message board, scroll down until you see the Valentine's crop forum, and play along with us!

LOVE your cards!! Looks like you are really making a dent in your scrumptious kit! :) For your grandma I think the second one. Colors are a little more muted and soft. Just my opinion. Thanks for the chance to win!!!
