I decided to employ the trusty fountain pen to fill up some of the white space, resulting in one of my favorite cards, which was sent to one of my besties:
Here's what my coffee table looked like at the end of January and beginning of February:
As you can see, I didn't just sew my cards. I also picked up some cardstock and "X" and "O" letters at Paper Source to make some simple "hug and kiss" cards. I splurged on the anatomical heart stamp and new ink pad to make a "heart of gold" card. And I printed out Zebra and Love Big cards, free printables courtesy of Bunny Cakes. The variation was absolutely necessary to save my poor fingers from all the needlework, and to flex some creative muscles.
I had a good time creating about 20 cards, and more fun writing messages to my beloveds. Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day!
