Guess that is what will be going on for awhile at most blogs.  Getting those Valentine Cards done!  I wanted to challenge myself by making a card with no stamping, no coloring - now that does make me sad but I am sure I will be coloring up a storm after I get this creative spell out of my system!! LOL

I found this die set at Amazon and the price point was excellent for all 25 pieces and it does a beautiful job.  I would have paid $15 for one set of these dies anywhere else and I received all three sets, circles, squares and hearts for that one price.  They cut beautifully as you can see on this card.  I did not have any of these stitch dies so I was so happy with this order!!!  Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
