Hello stamping friends!!
Happy Valentine's Day!!
Well I ended up being quite busy yesterday and forgot to post about the Stamp and Create Product Spotlight Sale.
This week, all stamps in the Baby Category are on sale 25% or more.
The sale runs through midnight EST on Sunday.
There is also a new Weekly Candy...
Ok, so today is Valentine's Day. Yep, it's not a huge favorite of mine. Why? I don't know. I guess I don't need a holiday to tell my husband that I love him and vice versa! Although it's nice when my husband does something nice for me, I would rather he want to do it because he loves me, not because it's Valentine's Day.
Anyway, he went to Peterbrooke Chocolate store and brought home a HUGE basket of chocolate dipped stuff (like chocolate popcorn, chocolate dipped pretzels, chocolate dipped graham crackers, chocolate dipped strawberries)! I was actually going to tell him not to spend the money on flowers this year since we are going out this weekend and I would rather spend the money then. But he DONE GOOD with the basket of Peterbrooke stuff! YUMMY!!
But, darn, it ruined what I was going to do for him and the kids...set up a chocolate fondue after dinner tonight! I can still do it, but we now have a MESS LOAD of chocolate in the house!! I'm not sure I can stomach even MORE chocolate!! I guess I shouldn't be selfish...although "I" may not be able to stomach that much chocolate, I think my husband and kids can!! :-)
Of course, I did make him a card...
This is the adorable Heartstrings Monkey from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. You know...because my husband is my "Love Monkey"!! LOL
While searching for a sketch to use, I found a great sketch at Sketch n Stash and was inspired by this card from their DT Michelle. I loved the simplicity of the white card. So I thought I would case her card. Of course, her's is better than mine! :-)
I ran out of heavy white cardstock so I actually used Watercolor paper for the card base. It's kind of an off-white but it has a fun texture.
The image was embossed in black onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os...
The current "Seeing Stars" challenge is still going on over at the High Hopes challenge blog. Come join in on the fun!
This card is also for the following challenges:
Cards for Men: Valentine's Day/Love
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Entwined (use twine)
