BE MY VALENTINE


Oh, it's great to be on Winter Break!  I'm loving this relaxed stamping time!  Today, I was inspired by two challenges: Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #183, a color challenge of Blushing Bride, Pool Party, and Soft Suede, and Stampin' Queen Sketch Challenge #20.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soft Suede compliments Blushing Bride and Pool Party.  I had never played along the the Stampin' Queens challenges before, and enjoyed this unique sketch.

Nancy, I love all your samples. And I'm glad you found a way to select your picks again and share them with us. However, when we want to save one, it is MUCH MORE time consuming for the system to go to Pinterest for the picture for us to save in our Pictures. I wish you could find a quicker way. Thanks for sharing what you love with us! Smiles, Laura
