Something special to share - and a giveaway

Hi everyone! Paper Smooches will release their newest Kismet stamp set called Bee Mine at midnight tonight Eastern time and I am here today to help promote this sweet set!  You will find the new stamp set HERE.




Isn't this set so cute? I love the versatility of this set. You can use it for Valentine, every day card, anniversary, etc. You can also easily mix and match this set with any of the other Paper Smooches set. And the size of the stamps makes it easy to create mini card or regular size card. I decided to do 2 mini cards. I have so much fun playing with this set. You can bet that you will see more cards from me using this set.

Here's the first card.




I used one of the sentiment to create the background. Then I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the bee. When I adhere the bee on the card, I fold the wing up for extra dimension. 

Next, is a simpler card. I think this perfect for those every day love notes. You know like to  thank my hubby for the little things he does for me.



And, guess what? I have one Bee Mine stamp set to give away to one lucky person!  You have until midnight on Sunday, December 16th to leave a comment.  I will post the winner here on Monday, December 17th.
