This afternoon I had time to make some valentines. Not many of them can be shared here, but I'm pretty sure my three granddaughters don't have any opportunity to check my blog! The card fits three challenges--an unusual event for me.
I've always loved the My Favorite Things animal stamps by Birdie Brown. Now that I have five grandchildren, I didn't have any trouble justifying the purchase of several sets. I used one of the stamps from this set, "Polar Bear Pals," for Caleb's birthday card, and now I've used two of the images for a valentine for my three granddaughters, aged 5, 2, and 7 months. I masked the little bear in the front, and then stamped the two bears in the back sitting down. The sentiment seemed pretty perfect, too. I colored the images with my Prisma colored pencils which have been neglected for awhile. After stamping the images, I die cut them with a Simon Says "Stitched Rectangle" die; might be the most used die in my collection.
This give you a better view of the shiny hearts I added as embellishment.

And last, but not least, the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Cute!
Tuesday's post for the Five in Five photography meme was my 1,800th post. Somehow I missed that milestone, but I do find it incredible!
