My Valentine…

My Valentine, My Prince! He has a NEW name!!!  Princess! 

I love my phone call this morning.  It went something like this…

Princess Russ: "Hi Honey! What are you doing today?"

Me: "Umm… working?"

Princess Russ: "I forgot my uniform! Can you bring it to me?"

Me: "You realize that is an HOUR there and an HOUR back?" 

Princess Russ: "Uh-huh!"

Me: "Anything for you Princess!"

Off I went…. Only my 2 hours turned to 2 1/2 because of the awesome traffic here.  <Big Smile>

The Princess has new additions to his uniform this morning. I pinned sweet love notes on his uniform reminding him Valentines Day is not far away and if he forgets his uniform again he will be wearing another type of suit all day at work.  <SMILE>

In all honesty, I didn't mind at all and I would do anything for the Prince.  Tonight we will be discussing his true hair color.  🙂

This morning he was greeted with this card:

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kimberly Van Diepen Broadsheet Alphabet Love Card



Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kimberly Van Diepen Broadsheet Alphabet Love Card



I'm a big fan of the Broadsheet Alphabet stamp set.  I've used it for many projects!  For this card I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the letters were perfectly straight.  I stamped them in Basic Black ink and then used Sahara Sand ink with the En Francais background stamp (I never spell that correctly! I failed English! Seriously, I did!) and stamped very lightly over the letters.  All of this was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and then layered onto the beautiful Love Letter Designer Series Paper.  Perfect paper for this card. 

Valentines is just days away.  I hope you are making a few sweet notes for someone special.  The kind that gives you the warm fuzzies inside. 

Have a FABULOUS Tuesday.  I'm excited about my DSWA meeting tonight in Alexandria, VA.  Two reasons: First, I get to meet new friends and second… I get to share my love of Direct Sales with other women.  This is a sure way to have a FABULOUS Tuesday!!  



  1. Kimberly, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card 🙂  If all my craft stuff wasn't still in boxes from moving….I would make this card for my Valentine. I love your "style" of crafting–the vintage little trinket type things and all the sponging and all the earthy/vintage colors. …..Just spectacular : )

  2. Love your blog. I am thinking about getting the digital studio.   I am not a computer whiz and  I am wondering how it all works. Can I print out from it if I wanted to do a wedding Invitation?  So if I understand this correctly, I can design a card on the digital studio. Then do I print it out or make it?   This is where I am getting confused. Do you have any cards I can see?  I am a new demonstrator
