It's Valentine's Week!

Hi there!

It's my crazy week at work and if I were being honest, I'd tell you I am NOT looking forward to it. It's a lot of hard work but it's also fun, so I'm trying to stay positive for all those men out there who need to buy roses for their honey's! 

I've got a quick post today - I'm glad to have this one day off so I can share something creative!

I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card with non-traditional colors.


I used lots of Simon Says Stamp products for this one. Their Sending and Wishing stamp and die set, the Combined Hearts die set, the Small Heart Doily die, and their Falling Hearts stencil. I love how it all came together!

Before I sign off, I want to remind you there is another fun challenge going on in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group! It's the 12th one and it's, "So Sparkly!" You can check out all the details here. I'd love it if you found some time to play along! You have until Thursday morning, February 19th to enter, and you could win one of two, $25.00 gift cards to the SSS store!

Thanks for the visit! I'll be back at the end of next week with something REALLY fun! ♥
