 Happy Monday Everyone!!  
I hope all are doing well and that you enjoyed the weekend. I had some fun playing with my new Cricut!!! I am so excited!!!  I love to make 3D projects and this will make it even faster and easier!! Woo hoo!!  Since we had ice and snow again over the weekend, we were stuck indoors...I am starting to get cabin fever and just want a little freedom to get out...Oh well...we are hope safe and sound...What more can I ask for?

Today I am sharing the Product Spotlight/ February Challenge for Stamp and Create!! 
This week's product Spotlight is Love/Valentine's DayThis means all  stamps that are Valentine's Day or Love related in the store are up to 25%.  Hurry because there are a lot of darling stamps and they are going fast!!

It's also time for a new Stamp and Create Monthly Challenge!!
This month's challenge is Love/Valentine's Day. 
The prize is a $25 gift certificate to Stamp and Create...
**No back linking, please - you must use a card that is created on or after the start of this challenge.
**Please link back to the Stamp And Create challenge in your blog post.

For my creation I used the adorable image Steal a Kiss from Wags N Whiskers illustrated by Crissy Armstrong from the Kidz 'n Paws Collection.  This stamp is available as a digi or rubber stamp.  I  also used light blue silk ribbon from May Arts and the bow easy available at Stamp and Create.  The layout uses the current Wags n Whiskers sketch challenge designed by Lacey (you have until Thursday evening to join this challenge)!!

 I colored my image with copics (E31,E33, E35, E37, E47, E51, E53, YR26 for the hairs bench and pants, B91, B93, B95, B97, B01, B00, B00 for his pants and hat and her shirt, BG000, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15 for her socks, part of her shirt and his shirt and hat, and E00, E000, E11, R00, R01, and E51 for skin, R81 for the cheeks).

The designer paper is from DCWV Linen Closet. The glitter paper is from AC Moore (K&Co.).  The ferns are cut out with a Martha Stewart Fern punch.  The hearts are cut out with Spellbinders Heart
