Prickley Pear - It's a love thing ♥

Hi friends!

I dropped the kids off at school - check!
put my library books in the overnight bin - check!
grabbed my Starbucks on the way home - MAJOR CHECK! 
Walked the doggies - check!
and now I'm home for a whole 2 hours to craft :)

This morning, I have a lot of love to share ♥
 I've made a few more cards using stamps from the Prickley Pear 
new stamp release ~ so many wonderful stamps in this release.
First up, I've watercolored this Valentine card.

I.  am.  so.  obssessed!

I could just paint the day away if given the chance :)
I used the love birds rubber stamp and the Be Mine sentiment
from the love banner set.

 I've also created 3 mini cards using the Valentine's Cupcake stamps,
one for the yummy flavors that are popular in our home.
I am a HUGE fan of Key Lime and we're super lucky to live in 
the tropics were it's pretty common here.
Plus, we have a tree in our yard where they grow to our hearts content!
It's always fun to make Key Lime flavored deserts.
And, of course, strawberry and blue raspberry!

 Here's a look at them with the inside area for writing little notes.  These are perfect to add to packages and gifts as well. 
I used a large nestabilities die but didn't quite cut it all the way through
to create a card base.  My circle die created the backdrop, 
and these are colored with my prismacolor markers :)  
Some twinery baker's twine and gems and done!
 Thanks for checking out the blog today!
Be sure to head over to the Prickley Pear blog for more inspiraiton
and the shop to see these stamps and more!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
