How the heck are ya?
I hope very well and ready to show some love for our next challenge over at
Because our theme for the next two weeks is....
I know we've all probably made enough Valentine cards to choke a horse here lately, but this kind of love doesn't have to be for that holiday.
Just show us someone you love or something you love to use and explain it in your post.
Some inspiration for you to get the ideas rolling:
4 things I personally love are:
1.) When it's the middle of the hottest part of summer and the sanitation man arrives to dispose of our waste and the empty trash can isn't filled with maggots. LOVE when I don't have to scrub that nasty thing out.
2.) When every article of clothing that comes out of the dryer is right side out and I don't have to spend an extra hour turning everything inside out. That's almost euphoric love there.
3.) That little hard chunk of chocolate heaven at the bottom of an ice cream drumstick. YUM!!
4.) When something strikes me so funny that I literally bowl over and grab my stomach and tears flow from my eyes and I laugh so hard that I start to make the craziest giggle. That sound sets my kids to laughing hysterically and then before you know it, we're all laying on the floor slapping our hands on the ground from hysterics.
I love when I laugh so hard that tears roll down my leg.
Those are just a few things that I love, but hopefully they'll get you inspired to share something you just love with us!
She didn't strike me as the lovey-dovey type, so instead of her professing oozing love all over the place, I made grunge letters that spelled "Mushy." Often when I end a letter or a conversation on the phone with my kids, I tend to include the salutation of "and mushy stuff" implying, 'I love you, you're a great kid, so proud of you,' yada yada and so forth.
These are just $1 wood letters that I've inked with versamark using textured stamps from Tim Holtz and then covering them with clear embossing powder and heating. Then I ran a black ink pad over them and wiped off the excess ink. Thought it matched her appearance fairly well.
Here she is bathed in Copics.
So what do you say? Will you join us over at
The Squirrel & The Fox for some creative fun and inspirational stamping? Think outside the box and have a blast with it. Whatever you love, we'll love, but we won't know unless you share it with us!
Thank you also Bugaboo Stamps for letting us use your wonderful images and for offering up a fantastic prize to the winner.
