Thirty Days of Valentines at Gecko Galz

Hello friends!!
Happy Sunday!!
Today is my turn to be featured at Gecko Galz for the 30 days of 
Valentine's Day Cards Inspiration!!
Here is the card that  I originally designed for this event 
(I had posted mine before I realized that we were to wait till our specific date).
To see all the goodies I used on this card, please visit my post here.
I thought I would go ahead and create another card using some Goodies from Gecko Galz and Really Reasonable Ribbon!
(as if you didn't expect 

I used one of the Color Me Jewels Collection images.  I used GIMP, to change the background color to a pink.  I used the Star Crossed Digital Paper for the background...and an image from the Bits and Pieces Ephemera set.  I of course used GIMP to create the heart shape and sizes of all of my pieces, so I could cut them all out and fit them on a 5 by 7 ivory card blank (I am getting that idea from my BFF Ginny).
The digital images are from Gecko Galz.
Here you can see how I inked the polkadot ribbon.
Flower tutorial here.  
I thought I would go ahead and share with you some of the other Valentine's Day Cards I have made recently using Gecko Galz images, some images of my own, and Ribbons and Trims from ReallyReasonable Ribbon!
This is my Pocket full of Love tags.  You can purchase the digital tags that I designed at Gecko Galz, and see a list of all the goodies I used here (as well as close ups).
Digital stamps from Gecko Galz and Really Reasonable Ribbon trims and ribbons.  Get the details here.
I used the same digital collage that I created from Gecko Galz images in this tag on the left side of my blog background...just in case you were wondering if it looked familiar....LOL.
You can learn more about the ribbons, trims and images used here.
This is one I did for my BFF...she loves Pugs.  You can get the details of all the goodies I used here.  
I created the center collage myself...then used some images from Gecko Galz....and of course Ribbons and trims from RRR.
Here is a card I posted yesterday.  I am super happy with how it turned out!!
How about a blast from Valentine's Day Past?
My Vintage Valentine Mini Album.  If interested you can see all the deets here.
Here is a heart shaped card.

You can see the front of it here.

These photos were taken with a tiny video camera....because I had broke my regular camera....what a nightmare...LOL.  You can see the hidden heart tag..and all the details here.
Hopefully something I have posted here will inspire you to create a Valentine's Day card or creation of your own!!
Thank you for visiting!!
