Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! I know I did!!  The girls had the opportunity to go on the toboggan with their father while I stayed in and did some crafting and laying low (due to a migraine).  It looks like we are suppose to get another Nor-Easter storm on Tuesday into Wednesday but then again so are 28 other states!!! Yikes!  Is it spring yet?!!!!!!

Today is the beginning of a new week Product Spotlight at 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% beginning tonight!!

For my product spotlight creation, I used the adorable newly released Whiff of Joy- Henry with Love Balloon. The ticket sentiments are Whimsy Friendship Ticket Sentiments  cut out with the Whimsy Shapeology Ticket die She also used Prima French White Fairy tale roses , the bow easy, and May Arts Ivory Silk Ribbon available at Stamp and Create.

I wanted to make more of a vintage creation since I don't make this style too often...When I think vintage, Victorian comes to mind...lots of detail and distressing.
