I've Been Stampin Up a Storm!!!

Good Saturday Morning everyone!!! I stamped all day Friday trying to finish up some projects. I made this for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast and the Double Dog Dare Challenge hosted by Anne (jdmommy) a few weeks ago to use a frame. You can find the DDC challenge in the challenge forum on Splitcoat.....#62 post. I colored the adorable little digi bunny named Benjamin from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps with copics and sponged around the image with Bashful Blue and Old Olive. The chipboard frame has been in a drawer for quite a while with out a name so I haven't a clue where it came from!! The paper is new from Basic Grey called Origins and the ribbon, flower, and button finish it off. Now I am only behind by one challenge...Whoohoo!!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Digi from Sweet 'n Sassy
Paper: White, Garden Green, Prism Tawny Dark, Basic Grey's Origins
Ink: Bashful Blue and Old Olive
Accessories: Frame, Ribbon, Copics, Button, Flower, Dimensionals

These are a few of the Valentine gift sets that I made for my Grandkiddos. I used an adorable Demani stamp and a variety of My Minds Eye and K&Co. Valentine papers. I bought the clear plastic boxes and the stamp at the Denami booth at CHA. 10 wrapped nuggets fit in the box and I made belly bands with the same papers. The little tin holds candy hearts.

I made these Valentines today and sent them to Pat Adam...she is asking for Valentines for the kids at Children's Hospital of Michigan. There are roughly 250 kids and they would like enough for each child to have a handful. The deadline is Feb. 8th so if you are interested, check out her blog for details. I used lots of different papers, colors, stamps, stickers, ribbons, and Nesties. Now, I'm all stamped out....time for bed!! Yikes, it's after 1:00 AM.......
Thanks for visiting....have a great weekend!!!

Wow! You have been a busy gal! That "chocolate" frame looks REAL! The groups of cards/goodies you made for your grandkids is spectacular! That group of Valentines for the hospital is such a beautiful collection and will be so much appreciated.
Stay warm, we are expecting some crummy weather tonight.
