Monster Rose

Happy Valentines Day!!  No matter where you're at this year or who you're with, I hope that it's a fabulous day for you to spend with your family, friends and loved loved ones.  For me?  I've made Valentine cards for my kids and placed them on the breakfast table for when they wake up.  Then I couldn't resist getting a few extra goodies for them to play with today and an extra hug and kiss on the way out the door.  :D  It's also a school day which brightens up their day even more since elementary school still does class parties and the whole nine-yards.  Bonus!!

The project I made today uses the new Monster Rose in rubber from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I colored this guy three times and cut out layers so I could pop them up.  The first layer is the whole image, of course.  Then on top of that I cut out the body, rose and one flower stem.  For the third and topmost layer, I cut out the heart and his head.  I love how this technique looks and feels!

Also in the spirit of things is a Valentine that my daughter made using Fancy Sunbonnet Love in rubber from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  She used colored pencils to color her in and I love that she also included some greens and blues in with the Valentine colors.  I'm so lucky!

Thanks for taking the time to come by today and have a wonderful luvy-duvy day!
