When do you use hearts?

I always thought that hearts were only for Valentine’s day.  Maybe you were like me at one time.  I stayed away from hearts because I thought they were too girly…so when Stampin’ Up! came out with the I {heart} Hearts stamp set I immediately looked passed the set.  Everyone I knew was saying things like that is one of my must have sets….and I said “Really????” in disbelief.  So I purchased the set to see what I could do with hearts.  These are two of the projects that I designed. Both for different events other than Valentine’s Day, but both could easily fall into the Valentine’s Day category with a change of the greeting.
