Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Cute Critters

Hi everyone and welcome to our last sneak peek release day for Sweet 'n Sassy!  Have you been having an amzing time on each day's hops?  I have loved seeing all of the creations by our super talented design team!  Be sure to check the SNSS blog for all of the release and hop details!
 
Today's set is called Cute Critters and it is indeed cute...super cute!  I adore the sweet animal stamps and coordinating sentiments.  Great for so many projects!  For my project, I decided to make Valentine's for my kids.  We don't typically do much for Valentine's Day but I usually make both of my boys a handmade Valentine that tells them how much I love them.  (They both still have all of theirs tacked up to their bedroom walls!  So sweet!)
I created each Valentine with the same design and simply changed out the animal and sentiment.  I started by stamping the Friendship Script background stamp on kraft cardstock (oh, these are all ATC size, 2.5" x 3.5").  I then die cut a heart, using the Hearts die set, and ran it through an embossing folder.  Next the fussy-cut critter was colored with Copics and attached to the heart, using foam tape, and the sentiment was added!  Perfect size for my young children and enough room on the back for me to write a little note to each of them...I can't wait for February 14!

I hope you enjoyed today's post and enjoy the hop!

I don't know how young your kids are, but these would make marvelous valentines for the kids to exchange with friends at school! Just sayin'. :) I love the sweet, simple design and the embossing on the hearts.
