Valentines, Valentines, Valentines Everywhere!!

Well, today was a well spent day. I am participating in a secret pal type thing with the SA group and I finished up my Cupid swap and have the package at the Post Office as I type! (Well, actually darling husband (DH) is taking it to the grocery store to get the postage on it for me!)

After I finished up the Cupid swap, I thought I had better get the boys' valentines made for their classmates. Jackson helped design his, and then I just made the ones for Logan's classmates. Here are the ones for Jackson's class:

Stamp Sets: Family Phrases, Darling Dots (hostess Level I)
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black
Accessories: 1 1/4 square punch

I made a 3x3 card, which is new for me. I have enough envelopes for them, so thought I would try something new. LOL!! It is odd to see me create a card that doesn't have either glitter or ribbon on it, but I guess boys aren't into that sort of thing. Who'd a-thunk?

And now for Logan's:

Stamp Sets: Pun Fun

Paper: Lovely Lilac, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Lovely

Hope everyone has a great week! I know the boys enjoyed playing outside in the sunshine. While we still have a lot of snow left, you can tell that there is a lot that has melted! Yea, spring may actually come sometime!!

New Designer Series Paper and Stamps

I even got to stamp this weekend!! I am trying to actually use the things I buy like Designer Series Paper and other accessories that are usually just too scrumptious to cut into. However, I was challenged by a group of ladies I am glad to call my friends, the SA girls over on Splitcoast Stampers. I was challenged to use the paper to make a card or two over the wekeend, and here is one I came up with.

I don't know if you can see it very well, but the white paper on the bottom has a very subtle stripe to it. It is absolutely DELISH in person. Want to see it in real life? We can make this card at a workshop, or come to the Stamp Day at my house on Sunday, February 22. While we won't be making this card, you can see just how fabulous the papers are for yourself!

Have a great week!!
