Materials Used:
Misc black cardstock, Daisy White CS (CTMH), misc hot

Samuel's Valentine's

I SO snagged this idea from

Laurie over at Just Give Me Stamps. If you've never visited her blog....GO!!! OH MY GOSH!! Her artwork is AMAZING!!! Hers are a little more involved. I needed a little simpler and easier. Most of my paper is scraps-which explains the varying colors of pink, for the girls of course. I embossed the cardstock with one of my cuttlebug folders punched the white strip with a MS punch adhered it all and added riboon. I worked on them today at lunch so I didn't have to worry about finishing them all tonight. (Samuel has to have his Valentine's turned in tomorrow....and NO candy this year....why we went for pencils!!) I think they came out pretty cute! I'm pleased. :)

I STILL have a birthday card, or TWO or THREE.....or get done. Maybe tomorrow??? Have a GREAT week!!!
