Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Well Happy Valentine's Day dear friends!!

Traditionally this is a day for lovers and romance...but why not just make it another day that we appreciate all the people in our lives who are so very close to hearts!!!

So today I am going to share with you the Valentine's "card"...actually the folder...that I have made for our sweet Miss Mia!!

Last Friday I shared our darling Miss Calla's folder in my promised there will be no tutorial today...and only five pictures...LOL!!

So here is Miss Mia's...
please click on the first image for a closer view and slideshow...
I made the folder similar to Calla's...omitting the cut outs on flap...
 I added flower lace with pearls to the flap along with the "latch" and magnet...
lifting the latch to see Tilda and "Sweet Mia" heart tag...
 opened slightly to see the inside paper...
 I used the very adorable "For you Tilda" from the Lost and Found 2014 collection...
I cut around her leaving a smidge of border so as not to lose the hair curls and flower bouquet...
I distressed the paper with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked around it with Ranger's Distress Ink-Tea Dye...
I cut out a heart using Spellbinder's Classic Hearts die, added "Sweet Mia" with my computer, distressed and inked this as well...
I mounted her on a bed of flourishes by Memory Box...
I added flowers and bead/flower cluster... 
on the other side I added a larger heart cut out with sentiment, also distressed and inked...
a bark heart, flowers, stick pin and heart/key charm was also added... 
Well that is Miss Mia's folder done!!! 
Tomorrow I will share Sir Quinn's Valentine's with you!!
