Valentines Post 1...I'm all quacked up!

Tommorrow is Valentines Day and I decided awhile ago that I *was not* buying my DD store bought Valentines! Instead I thought we'd make them together and spend some *Quality Stamping Time* together. (Queue beautiful classical music here and roll soft fuzzy edged film of mother and daughter crafting the PERFECT Martha Stewart looking creations whilst smiling adoringly at each other.) 

yeah umm...

Fast forward to today:  DD is still cranky from being sick yesterday, mommy has a horrendous headache and I'm blearily looking at pages of images I printed in the wee hours of the morning. However, this mommy is also stubborn to a fault (Read: Mama es loca)!  Not only WILL I get these cards made in time for DD to hand out tommorrow, I will also endeavor to POST every one too! I'm sure that all her little friends will LOVE them right? Have I mentioned they are pretty much all under 5 years old? Oh yeah. CAR-AZY!

Anywho...I'd better get on with prepare for the barrage!

The card below features one of Bugaboo Stamps Bobblehead Animals. The corny sentiment is courtesy of a brain scrambled by spending too much time with small children! (Yeah...I made it up, and giggled maniacally about it too! Sad ain't it!?) It is also made up exclusively of scraps including the base which was a recycled card.

Be sure to keep checking in throughout tonight and tommorrow to see each unique card as I post them!
