New Year, New Resolutions plus LOVE is in the air

Happy New Year!  Man its hard to believe that 2013 is now in the yearbooks and that we have a brand new year ahead of us!

Normally my new years resolutions are to Listen more - talk less, spend time with the family, and do what's best for my health.  To these resolutions I am adding one more this year - to craft more and keep up with my blog at least once a week (OK I realize that really is TWO more items to my resolutions but I choose to look at them as one)  :P.  The part about updating my blog has been an issue because of family, commitments and general everyday life.  To this I say -its time that I let my creative side come out and let more people see what I've been up to.

With that being said . . .

I signed up to receive the beautiful Simon Says Stamp - monthly card kit.  Holy cow batman January's kit was stocked full of things that can be used for Valentines day items but also could be used for other things like a scrapbook page for a dear friend of his very first grand baby. 

For the next couple of weeks I will be featuring items created with that kit.  Here is a Valentine's Day card that uses a few other things from Simon Says Stamp but you get the general idea.

The background was created using this and this, the pups and sentiment where created using this Stamp
Here is another view plus the sentiment for inside the card.

What you really can't see in any of these pictures is that the enamel hearts have this great shine to them.  Hope you enjoyed seeing these as much as I enjoyed crafting them - until next time Happy Crafting.
