We Love Stamps!
We are sharing our love of stamps for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  I know that I love my stamps and I love using them in unique and different ways.  For this challenge, I used the Kelly Purkey, Oliver stamp set and the BasicGrey Fresh Cut papers to create a series of mini Valentines Day cards.
Valentines Day is right around the corner. Don't worry! There's still time to make some fun cards.  My dog themed cards were inspired by my grand-doggies; Harvey, Hugo, Wedge and Foster. Such Valentine sweeties!

Do you recall getting little cards in elementary school?  Sometimes they had weird themes such as popular TV characters. I remember getting Donny Osmond, Welcome Back Kotter and Scooby Doo cards tucked in my decorated Valentines Day box. I do not think that they had anything to do with Valentines Day, but I thought that they were Groovy! ;)
Join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge in our "We Love Stamps" challenge this week for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp.  We know that you love stamps too, so go ahead and link up! Your project could also be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

Happy Stamping!



By the way, EVERYONE knows that "I love stamps!"
I received this Kelly Purkey set from my Mother. She purchased these stamps from Simon Says Stamp for me for Christmas.  Thanks Mom!  I love them!

  10. What a great inspiration for Valentine's cards! I liked the mini format of them and I adored the bright colors. So fun to pay homage to your grand doggies, too! It's always a pleasure to see what you've come up with: you are so versatile as an artist and I love that about your work! I never know what to expect, but I always smile at the results!

  12. Groovy cards, Michelle! These are fabulous minis - I needed inspiration like this when I was creating the 51 for my niece and nephew's daycare pals and teachers (I'm officially 'Valentine-d out'). Yours are so sweet, and you grand-dogs have melted my heart!! Visiting your blog is always such wonderful treat! David Cassidy, now that was my heart throb back in the day! Have a 'super cool, man' terrific evening!
