Challenge Me Monday #96

The month of February is just two days away and this means that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Today’s challenge will help you get ready for the special day as we encourage you to create a “Valentiny” card – a small card measuring 3x3. These cards are perfect for tucking into a lunch box or briefcase – or simply giving just to say “I love you”.

#96 – Valentiny Cards
Create a 3x3 card for Valentine’s Day

My Creative Time

We are so pleased to be sponsored by My Creative Time this week. Here is what Emma has to say:

Hi, my name is Emma, owner of "My Creative Time"! I have been papercrafting for 9 years now & started my own line of stamps back in 2010. In June of 2011, I launched a line of dies to coordinate with my amazing stamps! All of my products are made in the USA. I am able to do this with the support of an AMAZING husband & 2 beautiful boys. I even have the best Mom who helps me out with the shippping department! I am just HAPPY to share everything I know with ALL of you amazing crafters out there today!

A few members of our wonderful design team received some fabulous stamps from My Creative Time and used them to make their Valentiny cards. Just see how easy it is to combine My Creative Time stamps with Cricut cuts!
