Happy Valentine's Day + Giveaway!

Happy Monday and Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone is having a great day!  I know mine is super busy but it should be a good one!  Did everyone have a great weekend?  We did but boy was it busy!  Friday was my crop and I just had a feeling that I wasn't going to get much done and I didn't.  I talked a bunch with the girls and that was really fun.  On Saturday Jeff and I dropped the kids off at mom's in the afternoon and we went and had an early dinner just the two of us.  It was a great little date night.  Plus the boys had a ball playing at Nanny's house.  On Sunday my mom came over and we made Valentine's day Cupcakes for Jack's little party at school and that was a ton of fun!  The boys get soo excited to decorate them.  Then I did stuff around the house just to get ready for the week.  I have a busy week.  Tuesday we have night conferences (I really don't mind them it is just that I don't get to see the kids at all that day--they are asleep when I leave for work and they are asleep when I get home--i so miss them on these days!!!) and then on Thursday I have Kindergarten Orientation for Jack.  Wow I am going to have a school ager come September!  Yikes!!!

Well on to my giveaway.  It is a small one, but I just wanted to share some of these stamps.  I think there are so many things that you can do with them, and they are just so darn cute.  I also wanted to show my appreciation to all of you who come here and take the time to write such kind comments! You all are the BEST!

In the giveaway you will receive 4 stamps from the Imaginisce Snag Em collection.  There are 3 dinos and I ticket stamp. 




Here is a card I made with my set of stamps.  I took a 5x5 kraft base and stamped it with my Hero Arts background stamp.  I then used my nestabilities and  then I stamped and colored my dino using copic markers.  Next I made a mask and then stamped it with a dino foot print image. I then inked it up with more of the distress ink.  Finally I made the faux stitching with a black marker.  On the computer I made the sentiment of the outside and then I stamped Happy Birthday on the inside..  I love how it turned out.

Supplies
kraft cardstock, neenah solar white cardstock, Hero Arts cardstock, nestabilities, memento ink, tim holtz distress ink, copic markers, imaginisce stamp, hero arts.

 This stamp is a must have!!!!  I love it. There are so many things that you can do with this stamp.

 Here is a look at what i am working on using my stamp.  I stamped several images of the stamp in a row and then cut it out.  Now I am going to decide what colors to color it and then put it on a layout.  I love this. Aren't they cute!
So all you have to do to win these great stamps is:
1.  Be a follower of my blog!
2.  Leave a comment.
That is it!!!

I will pick a winner on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday!  So good luck!

I hope everyone has a great day.  I will be back tomorrow with a new layout!
Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh my daughter is obsessed with dinosaurs! She's homeschooled so we've done a dino unit with her and taken her to see footprints, dinosaur bones, etc. and I could definitely use these for scrapping those pics!
