My first Twofer of 2020......

Hello everybody: It was very hard to wait for the first Twofer Challenge theme for 2020 and, as usual, the talented DT came up with a fabulous prompt.
I'm happy to submit these cards for one of my favorite challenges.

And this is my first card.

I used two hearts punches plus the Postage Stamp (SU-retired) Punch to create this card.  The bigger heart is punched with a retired SU hearts punch, the smaller heart, with the Owl Builder Punch (SU-retired)
The sentiment is from an old Valentine's Day set from Flourishes called "Tokens of Affection"

This is how the INSIDE of this card looks like.

The sentiment and banner are from a Flourishes called "From the Heart" (2015) 

My second card is created with a super fun die set from SU called "Apron Builder", LOVE IT!!! that fortunately is still available and ON SALE!!

The pattern papers are from my stash and I used the same heart punches to decorate the apron and banner, the sentiment is stamped with a super old alphabet set from "Your Next Stamp".
This is how the INSIDE of this card looks like.

The sentiment is from a 2017 Power Poppy set called Tweet Tidings.

I would like to play along with the following challenges.

These are darling cards, Maria! That Valentine with the 'quilted' base looks amazing - love the four heart elements being hugged by your pretty ribbon. And that apron...! I have that set, and now after seeing what you've created with it, I'm going to pull it out and have a go! This is a fabulous card. Love all the minute elements you've used here. Two great cards. Thank you so much for joining us at The Twofer Challenge. Bev

I truly appreciate your kind words and enthusiasm, Maria! And I adore your two wonderful designs! Your Valentine is a textured and dimensional delight with the embossing, layered panels, and ribbon! Your second design couldn't be any cuter with that fun apron and sweet array of utensils! I love the sentiment, the great patterned papers, and the insides of both designs! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer's 2nd Blogaversary challenge! Hugs, Darnell
