Happy New Year, everyone! Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Valentines for the kiddies. This was a fun challenge for me because I don't have any littles in my life now to send Valentines to, and I don't have many kid-themed stamps. But looking at that Sale-A-Bration set called Awesome Otters, I knew exactly how to convert it to a Valentine!
The image I used is the otter holding a fish, but that doesn't really inspire thoughts of love. But if he's holding a HEART, that's another story!
I used an Exacto knife to cut around his arms (and discovered it desperately needs a new blade, yikes) and then free hand cut a heart to fit and cover up that stinky fish. 😁
The colorful striped pattern in the Sweet Talk DSP is perfect for a kid's card, and I added a little texture with the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder.
