Buffalo Checked Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!  In my blog post on Monday, I used a piece of leftover cardstock that I had used the Buffalo Check Stamp Set on....stamping in Real Red Ink.  You can see that post here: Meant to Be on Mixed Up Monday.  Now I am obsessed with red, black and white.  So I still had… Continue reading Buffalo Checked Valentine

The background looks a… Continue reading Meant to Be on Mixed Up Monday

Heartfelt Love You Lots Valentine

Have you made your Valentines yet?  Notice I didn’t say -  have you gone to your local card store (which shall remain nameless) and shelled out $7-$8 for a card.  When I was much younger, we always made our own valentines to give to friends.  And I see no reason to change that now.  So,… Continue reading Heartfelt Love You Lots Valentine
