Valentine Garden - a new DIY Valentine design

Valentine's Day is in February which smack dab in the coldest, snowiest part of winter here in New England. I decided to incorporate a little springtime cheer with my Valentine design this year to helps us weather through until April.
My Valentine card uses the garden theme to brighten the dreary winter days. This design is based on the same construction concept as Zig Zag Village although a whole lot quicker to assemble because it doesn't have the fiddly details. And yes, it does fold flat for storage or mailing. It fits into a regular 6 x 9" booklet envelope.
Available in svg, pdf, png, and dxf formats here:

Happy crafting everyone!

Beautiful Centerpiece

Yesterday I received an email from Miles Douglas. Miles send a long a photo of his table decor for Christmas Eve 2018. It made me very happy.

Using two of my cutting files, adjusting and combining, he made this beautiful tables cape. It includes the Moose in Fir Trees file available here plus the Covered Bridge from Tea Light Village available here. He increased the size of the Covered Bridge file before cutting to match the Moose and Fir Tree file combined it all with trendy Buffalo Plaid. Great attention to detail and a beautiful table setting.
