I bought this cute little die called "Bear Hugs" from Simon Says Stamp last year and never used it until now. I just knew it would make some cute Valentine cards! I cut three bears from red and white and inserted the white negatives into the red for some fun contrast. The papers are from the SU! "Sending Love" stack, and I used a SU! set of "Love Notes" dies to create the border. The dangling heart is a die from Memory Box called "precious hearts" and I put the valentine sentiment inside since the outside is busy enough.
I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
The Paper Players PP522 - use something new
NBUS Challenge #22 - never before used schtuff
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - something new
Shopping Our Stash #436 - What's new with you?
Purging my craft room has led me back to creating cards again for the time being. I keep finding older things that are new again as I TRY to sort through years of crafting supplies and tidy up this room. It's slow going because I stop to make a card every time I unearth an item I'd long forgotten about.
I guess it's a good thing that I have something to amuse myself with during these L.O.N.G. days that seem to blend into one another!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous day!
