A Vitamix Would Have Been Easier

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!

Just a quick post to share some valentines I made for my daughter's class.

Fruit and Veggie Valentines

So back in December (for the January Paper Smooches release), I stamped, Copic colored, and die-cut about 35 fruits and vegetables using the Paper Smooches Fruitastic and Vegtastic stamps and Fruitastic Icons and Vegtastic Icons dies. Thankfully, I find coloring pretty relaxing. :)

Fruit and Veggie Valentines

I used a mix of Paper Smooches sentiments, from the Fruitastic, Vegtastic, and Woofers and Tweeters sets. For the background papers, I used the Scalloped Circle die.

Here's a close-up of my favorite--the carrot. Hee hee.

Fruit and Veggie Valentines

My daughter used them for her valentines, but these cards would work year-round--I kept a few for me to use. ;)

Tomorrow, I'll share the valentines I made for my son's class.

Have a great day!
