Cut & Paste for Valentine's Day

I had a bit of time to play again.  This time I used the Cut & Paste collection by American Crafts.


First up is a card that is for either a tea or coffee lover.  I used the Coffee Cup and Tab dies from My Favorite Things along with a Silhouette cut file.  Nice and flat and postal friendly ;)

I am playing along with the sketch over at MFT

Next up a simple, masculine card for my hubby for Valentine's Day.  

I am playing along with a few challenges.  First up the sketch is from Retro Sketches:

The colors were inspired by Let's Capture Our Memories

Also playing along with the Curtain Call challenge:

And finally the Fusion Challenge:
