What's up Valentine?

Good Morning Friends,

I think this is the last Valentine to share.  

I saved this one for last because I made it for my Son. 
Every year I make the Valentines that my Mother in Law sends out.  
I let her pick from the ones I make for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. 
 But, since my Son sees them all I have to make his in secret. 

When I came home with my Scrapbook Expo treasures, 
he was looking through the pile 
and pointed out that he liked the this Penguin set from the Stamps of Life.  

The set come with multiple penguins, including the little guy.  I
 thought he was perfect to put on the film strip.

Whale of a Valentine.

Happy Monday everyone,

I hope that you are staying warm. 
California is once again experiencing spring while the rest of the country is freezing.  
I think Mother Nature has lost it.  LOL

Hope you had a great Valentine's day.  Mine was very busy with a family event.   
I am down to the last few Valentine cards to share.  

Today's card I used a stamp I picked up while on vacation in Oregon a few years ago. 
I thought the whale is adorable and it represented something from vacation.  
It was manufactured by a company I had never heard of..... Great Impressions.  

Today,  I have many of their great stamps.  
But this one will always be special because it reminds me of the wonderful trip we had as a family.  

I though of how cute the image would be if I colored the whale pink.  

I used my Wink of Stella brush to give the spouts a little sparkle and added some chunky glitter for the water.  

Have a wonderful week

Be Mine

Happy Tuesday!!!  

Today I share with you yet another v-day card.  

Isn't this elephant sweet.  
I picked him and his partner (a pig) up from Art Impressions.  
They are so cute.  

I just knew that these would make adorable Valentine cards.  

I love the added touch of seeing the backside of the elephant as 
he is peeking through the front of the card.

They also come with die cuts to assist with your image cutting.  

Thanks for stopping by

Tweet Valentine.

Happy Monday!!!

Only a few more day's until Valentine's Day.  How do you celebrate?

My hubby and I really don't do much.... I can't bring myself to go out with the crowd.   I usually plan on making something a little more special for dinner or a fun desert.   I usually pick up a small gift for my son.  Now that he is a teen it might be another gift card to 7-11.  He loves to stop in after school to get a treat.

Today I want to share another Valentine I made using this cute little chick from Paper Smooches.  I am so in love with their stamps.  I only have two sets and I can't wait to pick up some more.  The images are adorable and the stamps/dies work very well together.  

Stay tuned... I will be sharing some more of my Valentines this week.  
Have a wonderful day...
