14 Days of Love Day 7

Hi Stamping Friends!!

Today I have some Valentine love that is an oldie but a goodie...


Stamps:  Choo Choo (retired), Got Treats (sentiment)
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Whisper White, various DSP (some retired)
Accessories:  Heart to Heart Punch, Owl Punch (extra small heart), Button (retired), Stitched Grograin (retired)

This is another card I made for Goodies Cookies. I saw a Valentine train on Stampin' Connection (an online community for Stampin' Up! demonstrators) and thought it was super cute. During my stamp marathon in January, I came up with this card. It was fun using this stamp set in a different way. I was so excited when the "Got Love?" sentiment fit perfectly on the train car!!

Sorry about all the retired product I'm showing here. When I stamp cards to sell, I try to get rid of some of my "stash". But that's about to change, 'cause look what was delivered to my house yesterday...

Woo! Hoo!!!! Can you believe it?! I haven't placed a Stampin' Up! order since September. I've been waiting for Sale-A-Bration to get lots of extra freebies!!! I know there are four boxes stacked there. But in reality, the two bottom boxes have my order in them. Those top two boxes only had one item in each box. The second box has a pretty bulky item in it, that would not have fit in the bottom boxes. So I can understand why it was shipped separately. But that top smallest box had just one flat, little tote bag in it. I'm sure they could have squeezed in it somewhere!! They must have got the order all pack and ready to ship and then realized they left something out. Otherwise it just make no sense!!

Here is all the stuff that was in those four boxes...

Yesterday was like Christmas, my birthday, and Valentine's Day all rolled into one! That's how much fun I had unpacking those boxes and putting away all my toys. I must have had a silly grin on my face for a couple of hours.  :)

I got tons of FREE Sale-A-Bration goodies and some new stuff from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Plus some stamp sets from the main catalog that I've been wanting for a long time. You can also see that I bought lots of "essentials"... SNAIL refills, re-inkers, Dimesnsionals, Glue Dots, card stock, envelopes, order forms. These things are not as fun to get as new stamp sets, but I'm hoping they will last me for quite a while.

I'm not sure what I'm most excited about getting, but I know I've used my Simply Scored only once and it is AMAZING!!! I've had a Scor-Pal for about five years. The Simply Scored out performs the SP a hundred to one. It's also sturdier and I love the markers to keep track of which line you want to score on. Awesome product!

Of course I couldn't go to bed without making a card, so tomorrow I will have some Valentine love with almost all new goodies on it. And I can't wait to prep for my birthday card class and use all my new stuff!!

You can have this much fun too if you order during the month of February. Not only will Stampin' Up! give you some FREE stampin' goodness for placing a $50 order, but you could also win FREE stamps sets from me during my FEBRUARY PRIZE SPECTACULAR. For more info, visit this post HERE.

Visit my WEBSITE today and and see how much fun it is to have "Mr. Brown" come knock on your door!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
