Cute Card Thursday ~ Valentines

Valentines is the theme for the challenge on Cute Card Thursday this week!
We have another fabulous sponsor, Denise Lynn of Whimsy Stamps is donating 2 fantastic stamps for one lucky winner!
Denise is also one of our guest designers this week along with Juliet who again has made a fabulous card for us for her second and last week as guest designer. Thank you both for your fantastic cards!
The DT cards are amazing as usual and all so different so lots of Valentines inspiration for you!
I had to use this sweet little stamp from Sugar Nellie 'Luvvie'
she is so perfect for Valentines.
I wanted to steer away from pink and flowers etc for this card as it is for my DH and he really doesn't like those things on a card for him! I think this is fairly 'manly', I reckon he will appreciate that it has 'no frills'!
I was so lucky with this ribbon, it came ready tied on a pair of my daughter's PJs! Supplies: DP ~ Laura Ashley and DCWV Old World stack.
Stamps ~ Sugar Nellie 'Luvvie', 7 Gypsies 'Notting Hill', Stampin' Up 'Best Wishes and more'
Tools ~ Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, sewing machine
