Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope your day is filled with lots of love and happiness.  I usually make so many Valentines but this year I only made this one.  And I just did it this morning-a little last minute!  But no worries--it was done on time--although the picture shows a little bit of glue that was still drying--trust me when I say it did NOT have that on there when I gave it to him.

I decided to see what my old friends at SU Only Challenges had going on for this week.  I have not played along with them in a long time.  Their challenge this week was to case he catty!  I was hesitant at first because for some reason I do not use our catalog for inspiration much.  Which is so silly really--I find that I look at the stamps but don't really focus on the samples much.  Well let's just say that is going to change!  I seen many cute designs that I could use for inspiration.  Sometimes we make the whole process harder than it has to be--Stampin Up gives us so many ideas and free projects printouts (if you are a demo) that can let ANYONE be an amazing crafter--you don't have to come up with an original idea EVER if you don't want.  And in this industry it is more than acceptable to CASE other designs.......

So with all of that stated here is my card for today......



it was perfect!  I did not have any of the sets that they used in the sample but I was able to make it work with sets I did have.  Love that!  Here is the catalog sample which is on page 137 of the main catalog.


I had to use a few different stamp set to get the desired look but I am happy with the outcome.
