My first creation today features a sweet image
created especially for the beautiful native animals of Australia
affected by the Wildfires. You can find the Love For Australia set here.
I've used the fabulous Wavy Nested Dies Frame to create the watery puddle
and then added some sweet reeds and dragonfly details with the Build A Pond Die Set.
I used a lovely sentiment from the Enjoy The Little Things Clear Stamp Set too.
I think this Platypus is so sweet, this may just be a favourite make this year!
This is my 'Agape' (ah-GAH-peh) creation.
My second creation today features several sweet images
from our Whimsy Stamps Vault. There are the sweet little penguins from
the Penguins Winter Adventure Clear Stamp Set and I used the Matching Dies.
I also used one of my absolute favourite clear stamp sets of this last year
from talented Whimsy artist Crissy Armstrong - Lean on Me
and the sweetest set from Krista Heij-Barber,
her Baby Sea Creatures.
This is my 'Storge' (stor-yeh) creation made for my little boy.
I have one final creation to share
which uses a beautiful sentiment set that was created
especially to celebrate Valentine's Day, called Love Is Love
I adore this set as it has several of my favourite
love themed quotes and sentiments.
I've used a number of the sentiments to create the
foiled background and then altered one of the sets to use the
Happy Large Word Die from Whimsy Stamps.
I thought this would be fun to turn into a shaker card,
so I diecut a heart in the centre of the foiled sentiments and
then added a really pretty heart paper from the Whimsy Stamps
Digital Paper Set Hearts A Flutter. I added some lovely
shaker gems from Whimsy's Sparkletz collection.
This is my 'Eros' creation
Here's a close up for a better look at the shine the foil adds.
The Valentine's Hop Commences at 2pm EST on Sunday February 9th
and finishes at 2pm EST on Valentine's Day February 14th
So there's plenty of time to join in the fun,

Hugs, happy Valentine's crafting
and happy hopping!
