Love Monster Valentine Card

I thought I had better start making some Valentine cards, as before I know it the holiday will be here.  I had purchased this set last year and fell in love with all the "Love Monsters"!  I just thought they were sooooo cute!


Stamps - Love Monsters - Taylored Expressions
Ink - Black Stazon, SU Markers
Paper - Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Pink
Accessories - Layering Doily Die - Taylored Expressions, Heart Punch - Michaels,
                       Circle Die - Spellbinders

I made an A2 sized card in Crumb Cake and layered it with a scrap of pink I had left over and some Very Vanilla.  After I stamped my "Love Monster," I colored it in with my markers and actually cut it out!  I adhered my circle die onto my Doily die and then popped up my cut out stamp with dimensionals.  I stamped my sentiment and made a small banner out of it and adhered it to the card.  I thought that it needed something else, so I decided to decorate the card with some small hearts.  I really liked how it turned out.  Here's a picture of the rest of the stamps in the set.

I stamped up some more and cut them out so they are all ready to put on some cards.  Joe and I spent the afternoon with our new granddaughter Jennifer.  There is nothing like a little baby to put a smile on your face.  This is one of Joe's favorite pictures.  He just loves her little hands and feet!

She now weighs in at 9lb. 6ozs.  It didn't take her long to catch up with the rest of the babies.  The girls are looking forward to spending time with her next week when they have off Monday for the holiday!  Hope everyone has good week!

Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

This set looks so perfect for kids' Valentines! I just love that pretty heart doily die. The photo of Joe and Jennifer's hands is absolutely precious. Such tiny perfection. You really must have that one framed.
