The Stamp Review Crew: Valentine Free-For-All Edition

It's the third Monday of the month and you know what that means? Time for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop!  We're doing this one a little different this time, since there is such a short block of time for Valentine cards. This time we are using anything current that we can turn into a Valentine project.  This didn't require much thinking for me because I have the perfect Valentine set that I wanted to use for my three lovely children's Valentine cards!  

Over at Splitcoaststampers, I am on a discussion board that is trying to make better use of stamp sets that we have not inked up or have rarely used. For me, this set was a great Hostess set, Nuts About You. I just love the set, but have only used it once, I think!  

I'm so excited to have an early start on my Valentine's. Usually I am digging through my cards the morning of trying to figure out what looks good enough to give to everyone. :) I hope this hop will encourage you to get an early start, too! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure to click on the links to continue on to the talented Beth Beard's blog, or if you are working your way backwards you will be seeing what the amazing Dawn Tidd has to share with us. Or...if you are like me and tend to get lost, the complete blog roll is at the bottom!
