CAS: Cards for my Boys #1 (and a niece!)

Of course, I have waited until the last minutes to do Valentine cards for my boys!  I knew when I woke up, that  I was going to HAVE to rely on clean and simple challenges today to get the cards done.  Here's my first card for the day - it uses Splitcoast's Clean and Simple sketch challenge.  I'm not sure which son is going to get this card - I think I am just going to see who says "Dude" first!

The Dud stamp actually says "That is so cool". I found a small font and added the "UR" so it could work as a Valentine.

For a little clean and simple bonus, I want to show you the card that I made for my sweet little niece.  This card is a total rip-off CASE of this charming card by Laura!  You have to check her card out - it is so bright and cheerful!

  4. Both of these cards are just super! Love the "Dude" card! But I've completely fallen for the sweet teddy! The heart garlands are so sweet!

  5. So cute! I love your streamer with the hearts!

  6. That 'DUDE' card is so awesome, man! Fabulous use of the stamp, Kim! I think the US must be more enthusiastic about Valentines than in OZ! I have never thought to make valentines for my kids! But ... what a lovely thought!
    The bear card is super cute, too ... and although a "rip off" ... I am sure it has a Kim touch to it! Hugs xxx

  7. I'm sure your son loved his Valentine and your niece hers! What a darling little bear!

  8. The dude card rocks and the teddy bear is adorable!
