Thoughtful Blooms Valentine

Who says hearts can’t grow on vines?  Not me!  I did a little thinking outside the box last week and took a card I saw with flowers and turned it into a Valentine’s Day card. I used the scrolly vine from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and instead of adding flowers, I choose hearts from… Continue reading Thoughtful Blooms Valentine

Meant to Be on Mixed Up Monday

I was cleaning out a pile of scraps on my desk and came across a few sample sheets of the Buffalo Check Stamp Set that had been done in red for the card in this blog post Cow’s it Going…..again.  So I decided to use one to make a more “manly” Valentine.

And I’m back!  Ready to share another fun Valentine.  Because this is a fun valentine, I decided to have a little fun with the color of the ape.  I’ve actually seen the ape image I used on this card is multiple colors....the traditional brown or gray, but also bright pink, blue and purple.  But I… Continue reading I’m Ape Over You

Stinkin’ Sweet

I can’t remember the last time I made Valentines....probably when I was in elementary school which is......um....lots of years ago!  I’m sure I helped my two daughters make them when they were small...but that was also...not as quite as many years ago.  But I’ve been busy making them this year! I almost didn’t buy this… Continue reading Stinkin’ Sweet
