Ippity Hop Monday- How YOU Doin'

Good morning and Happy New Year everyone!  I had an achy back for a while, so I decided to just enjoy the holidays and take a break from crafting.  Now the holidays are over and my back is better so I'm ready to get back into the swing of things.  I made a Valentines card today using the  How YOU Doin' stamp set.  Here is the card I made,



and here is  the stamp set I used. 



I really like this set because it contains so many  cute images and sentiments.  The envelope image was stamped multiple times in Burt Umber Palette ink and then I colored in the hearts with  Hero Hues markers. My husband gave me a Vagabond machine for Christmas which I used  to cut out the Sizzlet die. This machine is so easy to use, and the best part is I don't have to put pressure on my back anymore when I cut out the dies.  I just love this machine!   K & Co. paper, a Martha Stewart border punch and some rhinestones and ribbon completed the card.
