Stamp of the Month/Template of the Month- Clear & Simple Stamps

This is a darling template that Sue created this month for us.  I found it super easy to put together and instead of using it for what it was meant for, I chose to put some candy in it as well as a lollipop.  I will tell you that I have a whole bag of Hershey kisses in it.

Here is another card using the Valentine sets from this month, Love Notes & Sweet hearts.

I did a pretty simple card with this using the new Bittersweet Basic Grey paper I purchased at CHA.  I originally was using it for something else and messed the template up, so instead of throwing it away I crumpled it up and aged it a little with some Papertrey Ink Chai ink.  

I created the hearts on my heart tree with some Cotton Candy Pink & Rockin' Pink Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge.  I used this in one of the classes that I took and loved it.  I got it in a few colors while I was at CHA.  I also used some Crystal Ice Stickles on some of the hearts.  

I have been trying to also finish the insides of my cards but had a rough time getting a good photo of this one.  I do love the sayings in the new Love Notes set!!
