Happy Valentines Day to everyone! I celebrated Valentines Day with my honey over the weekend and I feel totally spoiled! I love having couple time with him - seems like with life as busy as it is, it does not happen as often as it really should so I treasure those times when it does :-)  I also had a Stamp a Stack on Friday night and this card is one of  the ones they made.  I just love this little plane from the Occasions Mini - it is part of the set called Plane and Simple(clear item 121964) and is perfect for all kinds of occasions which is why I love it! I decided to use it for a Valentines card (I guess it could be for anything really since it does not say Valentines on it :-))  This is a pretty simple card to make - we punched out bunches of  hearts with the Small Heart punch(item 117193)  and just adhered them on the Crumb Cake base(item 120953)  to act as the design for the card.  The patterned paper is from the set called Play Date(item 117168) - it has little red hearts all over it so it was perfect for this card :-)  We stamped the plane in Crumb Cake ink(121030) and then added that cute little banner so that the plane is pulling the message across the card.....cute, right??!!  The banner is stamped with the set called Valentine Defined(clear item 123057):  The Crumb Cake banner is stamped with the heart wire stamp in Blushing Bride ink(item 119786) and then stamped with the sentiment stamp right over it in Real Red ink(item 103133) .  Such a quick but cute card, I think this was one of my faves that we did on Friday night!  And, this one will be going to my son - I always make up little Valentine goodies for the kiddos - hey, they are my Valentines too *wink*  If there is anything here that grabbed your interest, you can order them in my online store or email me and I will be happy to help you place an order! Remember, you still get FREE Sale-a-Bration gifts right now with every $50 order so take advantage of it - it does not last forever :-)  I have lots of paperwork to catch up on today and some stamping to do for my weekend classes so my day will be full! I hope you all get time to stamp today - have a wonderful day and I will be back tomorrow with another cutie they did in class over the weekend! Until then, happy stampin'!
