Pom Pom Dahlia Valentine's

Welcome to my blog, Today I have some Valentine's cards I made this year. One of them is a quadra fold card that Susan Tierney-Cockburn had demonstrated last week on her Wednesday Live video. It is a fun card to make. The other 2 cards were pretty basic 6" X 6" cards. On all of them I did use Susan's Pom Pom Dahlia Die. Last week I had a tragedy in the family and so I didn't get all the flowers I had planned to make and no tutorial which I am sorry. Thanks for stopping by today and until next time - Happy Crafting!
