Since this is the "Season of Love",  with Valentine's Day fast approaching,  I decided to make a few Valentine's Day cards to share with you. My first one is Disney themed (of course!)

Mickey is dreaming of his Valentine, Minnie!
I used the Cricut Cartridge "Mickey Font" for my large Mickey.  I cut my favorite Mouse at five inches.   The thought bubble that Minnie is in was cut from the Cricut Cartridge "Batman: The Brave and the Bold".  The Minnie rubber stamp is by Rubber Stampede.  The "Be Mine" stamp is by Stampin' Up. To color Minnie, Prisma Colored pencils and Mineral Spirits were used. I used Stickles on the dollie and on Minnie's heart. The paper was from my stash. (I love that Mickey's ears are glittered.  I used black glitter paper for the ears - no Stickles on them) White Enamel Accents was used on Minnie's dress.  The small hearts are foam hearts from Target's dollar section.

Next up is one of my favorites.  Who does not love Winnie The Pooh? Though not a traditional looking Valentine's Day card a cute sentiment inside could make it one.  Maybe something like.......I love you "beary" much!  Pooh was cut using the Cricut cartridge Pooh & Friends.  He was cut at approximately 11 inches and is a shaped card (thanks to the welding feature on my Gypsy).  The card stock used was from my stash.

  Lastly,  is a Valentine made with the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge "Artiste" (cut at four inches).  I have only had the chance to make a few things with this cartridge and I have to say that it is one of my favorites!  

Everything that I used to make this card was from my stash (even the cute stick pin).  I layered the heart with solid cardstock that I embossed with my Cuttlebug.  The cartridge instruction book shows this card with a paper tie (cut using the cartridge)  instead of a ribbon.  I used the ribbon as I liked how it gave the card a softer feel.
This is the inside of the above card.
That is all that I have to share with you today.  Be sure to keep hopping along.  Your next stop is Jackie at Kreate With Me 2.  Don't forget to leave me a comment and a way to get in touch with you.  You just might win the blog candy!! 
Also, hop on over here tomorrow for day two of the hop. I will have more cards to share with you and maybe just maybe more blog candy!  I hope you have a very magical, Disney kind of day!!
