An Old Favorite…

Yesterday some friends came over to watch the game. Claudine & I quickly navigated to my glorious, messy stamp room to make Valentines. We pulled out an old favorite DSP from Christmas a year ago. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day cards! Soft & fuzzy!!IMG_8002


The sentiment is not retired! It’s a set called And Many More…And Many More...

I love stampin’ with friends! Claudine is one of my “old favorites”!IMG_6231

Gifts for my downline

One of my downline is having surgery tomorrow and I knew just the thing to cheer her up!


I found something to fit into this adorable Curvy Keepsake Box.  This was the first time I’d used it and I’m in love!  Quick.  Simple.  Adorable.

Everyone is going to want one of these!!  I opened up my Feather Framelits & love them, too!

IMG_6537Here’s the whole gift set.  I usually don’t use DSP as wrapping paper, but I was using up the last of this batch & it’s so simple to tie everything together.

Thanks for checking in!
