My punny Valentine...

The holidays are over and I finally got my tree put away. So what's next you might ask...why Valentine's of course. As someone who is single with  no prospects for a Valentine this year I often wonder why I have so much fun making Valentines. I guess it is because it gives me a chance to show my sillier side. I love making "punny" Valentines. Here are some of the ones I have created this year.

 I kind of case'd this one from one Mary Gunn posted for the H2H challenge last week. Hers can be seen here, this is my version. I wanted to make it simpler because I will be doing it will a big group of ladies from church, some of which are brand new to card making.  The stamp set used is from CTMH and is called Howdy. I used Pear dots from the Olivia paper pack to make grassy hills , Sky background with white daisy sponged clouds, and a fun flocked sheep.Simple but  fun...Wool you be mine??

 When I saw the cover of last month's Card maker magazine I knew I already had the stamp set in my stash, a remnant from my days working at Archivers.

The fish stamp set is by Hero Arts and it is one I bought because it is so stinkin' cute but I don't think it had been used more than once. When I saw the magazine I knew it was time ti dig out those fishies. I couldn't find the paper shown so I went with this fun stripe by Doodlebug. I love the bright colors. So here is my version of the Card Maker cover card. I think it came out cute, I like it even better than the original.

This next one is based on another one I saw in Card Maker. Simple and sweet. 

The inside says...
I honestly have no idea who makes the stamp set with the branch and the birds. It is a leftover from a Valentine card class I taught at Archivers a couple of years ago. There are lots of tree and bird sets out there that would work. The sentiment is from the Love Birds set by CTMH.

This last one is a really easy one made with Coredinations paper (love that stuff) 
and a cuttlebug folder with the owl design.

The sentiment came from a totebag my daughter found with an owl on it and I recreated it here using the Chocolate alphabet set from CTMH and a dollar stamp that says "love". This one is super simple just emboss and then sand to reveal the color underneath.  As a huge Harry Potter fan I love that owls are so popular right now in the stamping and scrapbooking world.

Stay tuned I have even more Valentine creations to come but 
I hope you enjoyed my "punny" Valentines.
