Ok–I am ALMOST done with Christmas cards…..not done making them, mind you–just DONE! You know what I mean. When your job is making cards and selling stamps, you start with holiday cards EAR-ly! And as a result, when the rest of the world is making their cards and sending their cards, you are just DONE! I am not complaining—I love what I get to do! I just need a break from holiday cards for a day or two. SO–I moved on to Valentine’s Day! Kidding! Sort of!
The other day I was playing around with the new stamp set called Seasonal Sayings that we got for FREE at the recent Stampin’ Up! Providence Regional. Here is what it looks like:As you can see–there is a little bit of everything…including LOVE! I say that love shouldn’t be saved just for Valentine’s Day. I say, you should give a little away each day. Especially on this day—a day that we are all reminded that what REALLY counts shouldn’t ever be taken for granted.
Ok–so here is the card I came up with:
(The” Be Mine” is actually on the inside of the card. The scallop is punched out to create a window)
Ok—it is sort of Valentine-y with the “Be Mine” but you can use the Love You! stamp for anytime! I paired this with the Mixed Medley–the oh so overlooked stamp set at the back of the Holiday Catalog . I will remind you how cute it is:
This set is for hostesses only but don’t let that scare you off! You can get a couple of friends together, open a bag of M&Ms, invite me over to show you some great new things Stampin’ Up! has to offer, and –boom—You are a HOSTESS! Or forget the friends! Open a bag of M&Ms and start making your wish list order—once you hit $150—-boom–you are a hostess!
Anyhow–I WILL get back to holiday cards. Just wanted you to know that love is for ANY time! And most appreciated when you least expect it…..so go wig someone out and send them a love card today!
