Bella's Valentine

Hello Stampers!  Today I decided to make a Valentine's Day card.  I love the Bella & Friends stamp set, so it was the one I pulled out!  Do you want to see what I came up with?  Here it is!

Bella & Friends stamp set, Valentine's card, Inkin With Dink

I used the new watercolor pencils to color the dog and bird.  I colored over the top with a blender pen so that it smoothed out the color.  Love this!  I used the Sweetheart punch and punched out of the Sending Love designer series paper stack for the balloon.  The white background has been embossed with the new Falling Petals textured impressions embossing folder.  

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card!  Come back tomorrow and I hope to have a video to show you!

Valentine's Day gifts

Hello Stampers!  I hope that you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday!  My hubby always gets me Merb's chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine's Day!  Love them!  We also go out to dinner, but we wait until the week after to avoid the crowds.  I'm not a crowd person!  So, our dinner is still coming.  

I of course had to make him a card too, so this is what I came up with:

IMG_6223 Gotta love the Work of Art stamp set!

I also made up a little gift for him, thank you to my good friend Alene who gave me the idea!

IMG_6222 It's a little tackle box filled with his favorite candies along with Swedish Fish and gummy worms!  Of course my husband commented that it is just wrong to put fish inside your tackle box!  Oh well, it turned our really cute!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Come back tomorrow for the new Weekly Deals!
