Valentine's for Kids







Hey there, Bleeps! I'm sure you're wondering where my photos are from CHA! They're coming! I like to post something bold and new and that takes time! But, I do have some Valentine's cards to share with you. They will be donated to St. Jude Children's Hospital. Winter is organizing a card drive as well for Texas Children's Hospital. Regardless of where my cards end up, I hope they will make a child smile and forget for a bit where they are. This time, I even finished the insides! :)

Check this out! Erin K. was inspired by my card in Stamp It! magazine and made her own version. It's super cute and I love her take on it! I still can't believe that someone would be inspired by a card that I made. Thanks, Erin for posting!

Since I'm on the topic of Stamp It!, I have a few cards in there and one is the Stamp It Three Ways column! Please check it out because this issue is a definite must-have in your craft magazine stash! You can pick it up at any bookstore with a crafts section or AC Moore!

Thanks for taking a peek and enjoy yourself!
