Sunday Showcase: 24 Heart Cards From Leadership

With Valentine's Day only a week away, I thought it would be a fantastic time to share some of the heart-themed cards that I saw at Leadership! 

Some of these cards are swaps I received, but most are cards that were on display, so I don't know who created them.  Although I'm not going into detail about each one, please feel free to contact me if you have a question about how any of them were created!

Photo Disclaimer: Demonstrators were invited to create cards using stamp sets from the Occasions Mini to compete in several contests.  They hung their entrees on a clothesline, and unfortunately, that made it difficult to get good photos.  Cards were sometimes hung on both sides, so it became pretty comical to try to avoid taking pictures of other demonstrators on the other side!  LOL!

But, if you ignore the clothespins, and the background distractions, and the glare from the cards protected inside clear envelopes, then I think you'll be OK!  Haha!
