Trying to do Valentine's Day cards for boys is tough for me because I always want to make them too "frilly"!! When I ran across this Stampendous stamp set, I thought ... maybe the monkeys will be a little less girly??
I tried to keep them as simple as I could....which isn't as easy as it sounds!!! Adding some bling here and there and a couple of hearts was about all I could safely get away with and still keep them un-girly! I used the Nestabilities die to cut out hearts in cork and black felt to add something a little different to the norm.

Oh I am in love!! I found these adorable "Love Owls" at the DigiStamp Boutique and just had to color them up for Valentine's Day! I want to do them in lots of colors and send them to everyone!! But, of course, I can't do that! I'll have to use some other images because I can't send the same one to all three of my grandchildren that live in the same household...that would never do!! (hee! hee!)

Anyway....here are my last snowmen! I wanted to try a gate-card for this one. Colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils/gamsol and added some Martha Stewart chunky snow and some stickles. The ribbon is SU and the snowflake....not sure, but it came on an acetate sheet, some having a blue rhinestone, some having a clear one. I used coordinating paper from the same collection on the inside. These are always fun to do!
