Today is Punch the Clock Day. To celebrate this special day, CCEE January hostess Lois Bak has requested that the CCEE Stampers put something time-related on our cards (a clock, a watch, a calendar, etc.) If you don't have any of those things, make a birthday card -- that's time-related!
This Monday I am bringing you another fun Valentine sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. This one is for those of you who are into puns!
The images I used to create this card come from the following KSS sets:
The background was created with blended Distress Oxide Inks: Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, and Picked Raspberry spritzed with water. I then added Candied Apple heart over the top of the dried panel using and SVG Cut Stencil made with KSS' Layered Hearts SVG File. I only used layer 1.

CCEE January hostess, Lois Bak, has the CCEE Stampers celebrating Penguin Awareness day by adding a penguin or two or three to the cards we design today!
I have used Coolest Birthday by Unity to create my card! I have a winter birthday or two on the horizon!
My slimline Ladybug Valentine card is this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored design. It was created using images from Heart & Roses, Bold Holiday Greetings, Ladybug Hugs ( the word Ladybug), and Giant Sunflower (the ladybug). The background paper was created using the just released Digi Sweet Hearts Printable made to use in foiling. I do not have the equipment or materials for foiling so I just printed this buffalo plaid heart design on a sheet of red Bazzill cardstock to make a fun designer paper background for my hearts and roses.

Our CCEE Stampers January Hostess, Lois Bak says, "It's a brand-new year, so use something brand-new or something you've never used before on your card. It could be a stamp, a die, or even a new technique."
I have two brand new, never used items on my first CCEE card of the New Year. The embossed background was created with my new Mighty Waves 3-D embossing folder from Altenew. The other new item is this fun birthday sentiment from Impression Obsession.
Before you know it Valentine's Day will be here, and I am determined to have cards ready in plenty of time for snail mail delivery this year!! My sweet Valentines are scattered all over the state of Texas so today's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored card is for that holiday and uses images and sentiments from Champagne Cheer.
A transformer exploded and a neighbor's fence burned to the ground on Sunday night, so I was without phone, cable, and internet for the early part of this week. I am posting today the Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored card I had prepared for Monday.
As many of you know, I usually spend the last week of the year on a Texas beach with my family where we honor my late husband at sunset on December 30. This year is the fifth anniversary of his passing. Although family responsibilities and illnesses kept me at home most of that week, I was able to drive down to be with them on the 30th when my nephew stepped up to fill in for me at home for that night.
