My funny valentine.

Here's and adorable image from Sherri Baldy that is just perfect for that valentine that you want to make. I definitely like funny cards more than sappy style cards, so a sentiment like my funny valentine is more fitting. I don't think my hubby is the type for the overly romantic cards, ok, after 16 years, I know he's not going to turn into that.

I am entering this into the SSS Challenge blog this week. They are having an Anything Goes + Valentine contest, so drop on by over there and join in the fun.  The prize over there is Sherri Baldy images.  I also have some wonderful Sherri Baldy images as prizes too!! Woo Hoo.

I have started a winner's list now, click here to see it and check if your name is on it!  Be sure to sign up on all the open days to win as lots of prizes haven't been chosen yet.

So, what are your favorite stamp companies? both digi and rubber stamps....for me, I do love me some Besties, Sweet Pea, Unity stamps (esp those funny puns),  LOVE Lizzy Love's images,....wow, there's more, but those immediately come to mind, how about you?

I like this card Holley! I can relate to funny being more appropriate than gooey too.

I enjoy the images from all the companies you use on your blog very much! You've got some really cute ones and some very smexy ones too. I like a couple of companies you never use though too like Stampotique and Split Coast Stampers. I think the greatest thing about rubber stamping is the diversity of images available! :)

Natalie said...

lovely card,Holley. :)

I don't have just one favorite company. I have stamps from a lot of different companies. The image is important to me. :)

It's sooo cute! My hubby is more the romantic. Although he ususally does both romantic and funny, even for my birthday! lol
I don't really follow stamp companies, I like to search out by stamp. I really like Sherry Baldy stuff and have seen a few others I really like. Maybe I should pay attention to the ones that really have what I like!

A fabulous card Holley and a wonderfully coloured image. I'm lucky that my hubby is still a romantic after 33 years together.

Avril Ann said...

Another smashing card Holley, I always love your colour combo's they are so cheering, hugs xxx

Debbie A said...

I love this one! My hubby has always gone for the sentimental "sappy" cards, I think at first because he thought that's what he was supposed to do, but now after 37 years I think he actually does like them! :) As for stamp companies, I'm a Close To My Heart girl! But I also like Penny Black, Stampendous, and Magnolia, to name a few!

This is so gorgeous. The image looks stunning with beautiful colors.

My favorites stamps are Inkadinkado and Unity stamps. I don't have a printer with me, so I don't buy digi much.

Gail Behrle said...

Very cute card. Great color combination. Love the image. I like Sherri Baldy and those big eyes!!

Dar Bassie-Cripps said...

I just can't even believe cute this stamp is! So amazing. Like I've said before, I'd NEVER be able to choose just one as a favorite. I am blown away by how many choices of rubber stamps there are now in comparison to even just four years ago when I started stamping!

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

Oh.. your card today is cute. I love her curly hair. I don't use digi's as much, But my favorite companies to name a few are Unity, Stampendous, Tim Holtz and the list goes on. I love Sherry Baldy's but don't have any of her images.

Adorable. I love stamps from lots of companies...it is important how they stamp as much as what they are. My all time favorite is probably Penny Black.
