  1. Love them all and thanks for the inspiration!

    Peace & Luv,

  2. Not a thing wrong with any of them. They are all publish worthy. :)

  3. LOL! I was beginning to wonder exactly how many Valentines you actually had ... then read that you were making them for your church stall. Now ... that makes more sense! :) I like ALL of these (and I'm not just saying that!) Lots of fantastic designs & details! Very pretty! Hey Kim ... did you get my email about winning a FREE PASS to INKspirations 4U! I can't wait to share the fun with you! Hugs xxaxx
