Happy Valenswine's Day!

Today I begin my onslaught of Valentine's cards. I hope to make oodles and oodles of them this year! But of course, I also *claimed* to you all that I would be posting a ton of Christmas cards last fall and THAT never really happened, so we shall see... But I am optimistic! I've been on a little bit of a blogging roll lately, I don't know if you've noticed. Maybe I'll be a real blogger someday? :-) Anyway, today I dug out one of my favorite "Valentine's" stamps (or anniversary or whatever) - Soda Shop Pigs from Hambo Stamps!

Aren't they adorable? One of my favorite things to do with this image is add a little liquid applique "foam" to their soda!

I played along with the latest Mojo Monday sketch for this one:

And now the fun news I mentioned yesterday!!! You all know how I love my Hambos!! (You can see all my past designs here.) I was lucky enough to be on their design team a while back, and now I'm BACK and helping out as Guest DT Coordinator! I'm putting my project management skills from my former life to work! HA!

So YAY!! I'm so happy to be a part of the Hambo team again, Monica and Tim are soooo wonderful! And by the way, they are currently doing a design team call. I *highly* recommend you go for it! They are fantastic to work with, and on top of that, the super sweet Judy of Joy in a JAR is the Design Team Coordinator!!! Can we say DREAM TEAM!? :-) You just KNOW you want to join us... :-)
