A little Last Minute Love

Be-Mine-OrnamentHappy Valentine’s Day!

My card today was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest – HERE.  I thought hearts hanging from a tree branch was a cute idea… and was happy to pull out the stamp sets: 3 Step Hearts and Multi Step Owl and Autumn Moon to do mine own version!

I then did a couple of Valentine’s Day tags with Multi Step Teddy Bear Wishes and Words of Love. It has turned into a tradition with our boys, to give them a container with their favorite candy.  It appears as they get bigger, so does the container! lol

Do you have a Valentine’s Day tradition that you have with your loved ones?

Wishing you all a day filled with love … and sweets!

WOW! KS Crew Challenge #13 & POM!

Our hostess for today’s KS Crew Challenge#13, is one of our new KS Crew members, Connie. Connie is asking us to sharpen up on our cutting skills!!

color flower out of sinkConnie’s Challenge is: Running with Scissors!
… “Didn’t your mom ever tell you NOT to run with scissors? Well for this challenge I am saying it is okay!! Okay….maybe not to actually physically run with scissors, instead let’s let our scissors do some running! This week’s challenge is to have at least one cut image on your card…it does not have to be the focal point image, and you can cut one thing or many….that is up to you…but make sure and let your scissors do some running.” 😀 – Connieangela-flower

PLUS, the Kitchen has an extra serving of FUN!!! KS Crew Member, Angela, got so inspired by Connie’s challenge … she took her scissors out for a marathon run … which turned into a surprise Project of the Month – for May! YaHoo!!!!

So, pick up your scissors and join us and play along with Connie’s challenge … again, you will be playing for a chance for one of 3 prizes. 1st prize winner is $50 worth of Kitchen Sink Stamps. You can’t win if you don’t play. 😀

Here is my sample… a tri-fold graduation card.look-out-world-front

For inspiration to get you and your scissors snipping, see what Connie and the rest of the KS Crew have carved out for you:
