I love Stampin’ Up!

So one of my new year’s resolutions was to update this blog MUCH more than I did last year and to kick that off I’m aiming to post each day this week!  If there is anyone left who actually visits me anymore, please leave some comments and at the end of the week I’ll have some blog candy for you… But I need to know if you are visiting! 🙂 

Valentine’s Day is just 2 weeks away so I thought I’d play with a stamp set called I {heart} Hearts.  I’ve never really been into making heart type cards, or Valentine’s Day cards, so I was rather surprised how much I enjoyed playing with this set!  I {heart} this stamp set! 

I have a Valentine’s Day class on Monday the 14th of Feb is you’d like to coming along – I’ll post sneak peek pics of the projects soon.

For today I have two cards for you!  Both using the same stamp set and colours. (click on the image to see bigger).

    

And here’s the next one:

 Both cards are using Crumb Cake with the Woodgrain background stamp, stamped in Versamark.  The other Colours are Marina Mist, Daffoldil Delight, Rich Razzleberry & Melon Mambo.  And to finish off I have to include a pic of my kids on their first day back at school!  I can’t believe they are all there this year…

    Hi Kim-These have been worth waiting for. Just love these colours. Have to add, the photo of the kids is great. They all seem to have grown so much over the hols, particularly Holly. She looks so grown up in that uniform. Anyways thanks for the posts. I just love your creations. KarenC
