Sweet Stampin' ~ Valentine/Love Challenge

Hey there lovely crafty pals. Well this week is an exciting one for me! One of my sweet baby nieces turned one on Thursday. So we're off to celebrate her tomorrow. I'm trying hard to finish a special make for her, but it's certainly put me in the 'baby love' mood! Our challenge today at Sweet Stampin' is Valentine/Love, which opens the interpretation to not just be for that 'one' special someone in your life. The card I created, was actually for my father-in-law from my kiddos. My kiddos only have one grandpa now, so he's pretty special.

I just loved this paper when I saw it and knew there was a fantastic digital set at Whimsy Stamps that would work so beautifully with it! The colours were perfect for a masculine make and the rest just fell together very easily. The paper is from The Digital Press, I love their digital designs. They have their 'Penny Saver' event running right now too, so you can pick up some beautiful sets for only US$1, which is a real steal! This card is a CAS but striking creation I think. The kiddies loved giving it to their Granddad and he did look quite pleased with it, so I think it went down well.

We've had very few entries into our last couple of challenges at Sweet Stampin' which has us wondering if our themes are too specific or we don't allow enough creation time for such specific themes, if you have thoughts, please do share! Perhaps it's because we've changed to 'Just For Fun' challenges. I'd love to know your thoughts as we want to get it right. Sweet Stampin' has a great team and we have a lot of fun, so I want to get folks playing along again! I'll be back soon with another crafty adventure, in the meantime go check out what the rest of the team have been up to for this challenge. You are gonna LOVE it! Crazy talented this team. Hugs and happy crafting, Wends xoxo
