The first gave me an excuse to buy a new heart-shaped hole punch. This one is 2-3/8" ... a nice size for many many projects in the future.
I used the punch to make the girl's skirt. I used an old button from my grandmother's button jar for the head and heart-shaped buttons for the balloons.
Inside, a message for my girl who like her fancy shoes!
The second card was inspired by a YouTube video. In the video, Marianne makes a series of cards including this clever apology card made with a real eraser. I used glue dots to adhere the eraser to the card. I got to try out a new set of alphabet stamps for the lettering.
I kept the inside message simple.
I highly recommend watching the entire video for more great ideas:
