Switching gears....

Even though I didn't make a whole lot of Christmas cards this year (didn't mail a lot either, since they're still laying here on my desk!) I'm definitely ready to switch gears and start working on cards for the next holiday... Valentine's Day! I ordered some new release stamps from Whipper Snapper recently and couldn't resist getting a few of them inky!

This first card uses Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #53, the Wheelbarrow of Love stamp, and a computer generated sentiment. I pulled out some Basic Grey Bittersweet paper from last year to use on my card, and embellished with an acetate heart and button.


This second card uses some new Valentine paper from My Mind's Eye and the Just One Kiss stamp from Whipper Snapper. The X's and O's stamp is from Kitchen Sink Stamps. My froggie's crown is accented with some sparkle from my Spica glitter pens.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We had a perfectly lovely day in the Hershberger household, and the girls are anxious to do some after Christmas shopping today, so we'll be headed for the mall! I'm hoping to squeeze in a stop at Archiver's while we're out and about!

Have a great weekend!
