 This is the last week of Sale-a-bration!   I wanted to share a few cards using the Approaching Perfection stamp set.  You can get this set free with a $50 purchase - but only through the end of February.  The paper I'm using is from one of the five sets of paper you get free if you join Stampin' Up.  That offer is also only good until the end of February.

Gilded Hearts & Kisses

 I've been having fun playing with the Gilded Leafing. I learned an important tip in a class my friend Kay had - sponge dauber!  I wanted to see if I could use Glue Dots with the Gilded Leafing - it worked! I had to do one more Valentine/Love project before the weekend.  Here's what I made tonight.
