Valentine's Day ATCs and Faith

Happy Valentine's Day!  I'm not only sharing with you the Valentine's Day ATCs that I made a few weeks ago, but I'm also going to try and add a video link to my blog today.  Can't be that hard, right?

I wrote once before about being part of the Transit Traders, a group of lovely ladies who share their talents and dedication to making ATCs.  For January's meeting I made Valentine's Day ATC to share/trade.  Here they are:

Sorry, this photo is a little blurry.
 Stamps: Paisley Prints (retired), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, red glimmer paper
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red marker
Accessories: Full Heart punch, Small Heart punch, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Big Shot, Finial Press embossing folder

I didn't realize until I wrote the supply list how many items it actually took to create this ATC!  Sure hope this stamp set comes out of retirement and makes it in the new catalog because I really love it!  The only special thing I did on these cards was ink up the Paisley Prints heart stamp with pretty in pink ink, then color over a few of the paisley shapes with my real red marker.   My cousin Kate also attends the Transit Traders group. A few days before the January meeting, she seemed a bit concerned that I didn't have my ATCs completed yet.  Maybe it takes her a long time.  After all, some of the ladies make more than one type of card to trade.   That's too complicated for me; I prefer to mass produce in an assembly line method.  I simply whipped up the ATCs the morning of the meeting!  I can do that because I am the "Stampin' Mom of Four!" 

Now onto the faith part of my post.  As you know, my friend and downline Linda has been with her 13 year-old grandson Nick and his family in Massachusetts as he recovered from a cardiac arrest.  Well, miracles can happen and Nick is back to school.  He still has a lot of healing to do.  Have faith, Nick!  This one is dedicated to you!

Happy stamping!

Susan, I love your cards. They are just darling! I also love this song by Kutless. Thank you for posting this. It is such and encouragement that I passed it along to a friend who is in need right now. I'm also going to post it on my blog as a reminder to me who we serve.
Blessings, Sue
