The Last Valentine Card?


This may be the last Valentine's Day card I have to make this year! Whopee! I may post a couple more that I already finished later.
This is for Clean and Simple Stamping FTL76 challenge.

The image I used on this is from PSX stamps. There really is a funny story that goes along with this stamp - I won't go into all the details......but, last year my husband and I went to an Estate Sale and he came out wagging this cardboard box. Inside the box was about 25 stamps (that had never been used!) and some ink (that was no good anymore). He paid $20.00 for the entire box and thought I may like it. Most of the images are so cute and I've used them before. I just recently found out that PSX stamps are no longer around and some of these stamps could be worth quite a bit! I think he got a pretty good deal for the box of stamps!

I used Real Red and white cardstock. The sentiment is from CTMH Soul Mates. I ran some white through my Cuddlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the little squares (except for the one that has the image). I found the ribbon last week at a fabric store.

Thanks for stopping by............

This is really cute. And how fun to get a box of stamps as a surprise.

I loved PSX stamps. I still have some. I don't know why they closed their business but they made some awesome designs. Yes... some of them, primarily the botanicals, have gone for as much as $200 a few years ago on ebay. People pay a lot less for them now but they might still be worth your while to sell them if they aren't ones you will use.
