Happy FriYAY!

Did this week fly by for you?  It did for me, I posted Wednesday’s blog post on Tuesday!  So maybe I’m trying to make it go by quicker than it actually is.  Sorry about that, I try to do a blog post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Sometimes life gets in the way and I don’t meet that self imposed schedule.

These Party Pandas are so cute.  While it’s not a Valentine’s Day set, it does come with a few cute sentiments, one of them being, “Love you,” and you don’t need it to be Valentine’s Day to say love you.  The other sentiments are “Happy Birthday and Hi.”  Great sentiments to have on hand.  The Party Pandas stamp set comes in both wood mounted stamps and cling rubber stamps and it’s only available as a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.  Here’s my card:

A Party Panda Valentine's Day Card

A Party Panda Valentine’s Day Card

I made this into a quick and cute Valentine’s Day by simply covering up the balloon he’s holding with heart shaped die cuts cut out of scraps.  I used one of the hearts out of the Lot of Love Framelits, but you probably have heart shaped dies in your craft stash.  I listed all the framelits below that have a heart shaped framelit in the sets.  Take a look, you might already have some of these.  If you don’t just click on the thumbnail pictures below and get you some!   Do you have a Wink of Stella pen/marker?  I love my clear Wink of Stella to add mess free glitter and shimmer to my cards.  I used the Wink of Stella on the panda’s white areas.  He’s really shimmery and looks great with the Gold Glimmer (glitter) heart die.  Love me some bling!

I’m also including a link for all my FEB – MARCH WORKSHOPS!  I hope you can attend one of these fun workshops and I also have chocolate available at your stamping station.

Here’s what I used and I’ve listed the other Stampin’ Up! framelits sets that also have a heart shaped die as part of the set.
