Chalkboard and Glitter Heart XOXO...Addicted to Stamps and More~Clean and Simple

Hello!

Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More #179~Clean and Simple


I'm on a Valentine kick (hey, what a surprise *grin*). I've already made 32 plus 'somethings' for my niece and nephew's classmates (and didn't take photos...d-uh! My sister-in-law will be doing that favour for me) and now I'm working on cards for their teachers. Three were done and delivered during my recent trip. Another twosome are here: super quick, super easy (the 'figuring out' took the majority of the time):

CAS #1:  a little 'chalkboard-y' number, with a glittery heart...


CAS #2: a puzzle-heart...

Please check out what my fabulous teammates have designed; a whole lot of clean, simple and sweet await you over at the ATSM main site.  After you scope out their gems...it's YOUR turn!  Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery; this week's winner will receive a gift certificate from our wonderful sponsor:

Oh, I love both of your cards a lot. But I need to admit, that I would have never thought about giving a Valentine´s card to my teacher when I was young :)

Hi Carol! You completed your 32 somethings for your niece and nephew? And now working on two beautiful valentine's for their teachers? Oh boy, you put me to shame. You make very effective use of your limited time, that is very evident. Your cards are beautiful. I adore that sparkly heart in the center of the speech bubble. The xoxo adds a wonderful touch. Your second card with the puzzle pieces is so pretty, too. Great use of that speech bubble, too. Thank you so very much sharing and inspiring Carol! I hope you have a wonderful day! Hugs! :)

You are on a Valentine roll, girl! I'll bet all the moms in T's & C's class, as well as their teachers love to get these in their Valentine mailboxes. Easy to see why! These are CAS goodness and fun! Love 'em! Thanks for the sweet thoughts and prayers as I dealt with those darn ol' YKWs. Hoping this week is much better. xo Bev

Brilliant cards, Carol! I love the stylish red glitter heart on black with the white hugs and kisses on the first card, and the perfect pairing of the sentiment and puzzle heart on the second card :)

Oh Carol, I am so behind on commenting - thanks so much for all your wonderful words recently on my blog. Life is crazy at the moment, but I am going to spend this frigid weekend relaxing at the beach, so I hope to catch up! I so love both of your cards. The speech bubble is a great idea. They are both so similar yet so different. It's amazing how little changes make a world of difference. I am pinning these babies to my valentine board for sure. and of course, thanks for linking up and playing along with us at AAA Cards.

Marisa said...

Boy am I behind....having to skip a few as I try to catch up but have looked at each one - promise!! Great cards - same layout totally different effect. Well done!!
