Happy Valentine's Day

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share the card I made for my sweetie for Valentine's Day.



Excuse the slightly wonky heart. In retrospect, there WAS an easier way to make this card. But I wanted the cut-outs and not layers - and I have a bad habit of NOT taping down my dies when I run them through the machine. So - shifting sometimes occurs and I didn't really notice it until after I was editing the photo. Oh well! One of these days I WILL learn.

February Promotions from CTMH

Hi folks!

It's a new month and that means it is time for a couple of new promos from CTMH.

As usual, the start of a new month ushers in a new stamp of the month. If you are a frequent visitor then you have already seen me preview this stamp set in a recent baby card.





Balloon Animals (S1602) is a D-size stamp set available for just $6 CAD when you place a qualifying order during the month of February - or for $21.25 at full retail.

Here's a couple of photos of artwork from CTMH home office featuring this adorable stamp set.




In addition to the February SOTM, there is a another special promotion this month featuring a limited edition stamp set in support of Operation Smile.



When you purchase the Share the Love stamp set during the month of February, $7 USD is donated to the Operation Smile campaign. Isn't that fantastic? I've already got mine! I'm hoping to share some of my own artwork with it in the coming month.

As always, thanks for stopping by! Hope to have you visit again soon!
