Valentines Cards

Here's a few of the Valentine's cards that i have made up for a shop that sells some of my cards.Sorry about the rubbish pics, its very wet and dark here today.

These ones are sizzix heart cut outs, the one in the middle is a felt heart with stitching around it in pale pink.

Here's a close up.

Also fancied something quick to knit up last night while watching telly so decided to make some dish cloths face cloths..... Does anyoneuse these?? I have had this pattern scribbled down on a bit of paper for ages , i found it on the net but can't remember where.I thought about making a few and putting them with some nice soap in a bag as a gift set for the face ones. I,m wonderingif to make some cream ones as dish cloths for the shop?
