Here are a few valentines that I came up with for a crop that I attended last night.  The first two are very simple cards that I used for make and takes.  Many of the ladies at the crop had never heard of A Muse Studio, so it was a great way to introduce them to their products.  As you can see, the addition of one element on the second card by my friend Carla:) helped to punch up that card a little.   I love the My Aim is True set.  Not only are they lovely stamps, but they also bring to mind this wonderful classic from Elvis Costello.  They also fit the theme for this week's challenge at the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog.  Please check them out for more A Muse goodness!
