Kid's Valentines w/ Piggy Tales
Today I created for a couple of challenges, including a non-traditional Valentine card challenge at ACOT. I just happened to have scraps of paper left from Piggy Tales "Ants Go Marching In" March kit collection, and whipped out two cards.
The first, for Abby, has the crypted message on the front "Buggy Over You" -did you get that? Well, I am sure our kindergartner will need help, but I know she will be quite amazed by it once I help her decipher. (LOL) Of course she is our "little bug", one of our nicknames for her, so the card is a great fit.
Kyle's card uses one of the adorable bee rub-ons I had left, and a small chipboard frame to make it stand out on the front of the card. I know the sentiment "bee my Valentine" is overused - but who could resist with these cute bees? The card is quite simple, and I criss-crossed two rows of stitching around the outside for a touch of whimsical fun.
The clock is ticking away - Abby and I still need to sit down and make Valentine's for the 24 kids in her class. I will literally be pulling out all the Valetine leftovers in my stash - papers from previous DT gigs, and all the red and pinks that I have had for too long. This is my plan for Sunday - unless I uncover a batch of leftover store bought Valentine's in my cleaning frenzy, and I just might! Next year at this time I fully plan to have a Cuttlebug - and oh how much fun Abby and I will have making Valentine's for her classmates. This year, however, I am thinking fast and easy! (LOL)
Just a note about the Piggy Tales March kit - there is a lot of buggy paper in the kit - and one could really make LOTS of similar cards. I know there are some March kits left -snag yours now!
