XOXO loooOOOoooOOOooove* fest: week one

can you believe it's february first already??! yeah, me neither. january just flew by like...a thing that flies by really fast**...yikes!

but it IS february first and thus time for a new caardvarks challenge! and not just any old challenge, no sirree bob***! no, this is week one of our month long XOXO LOVEFEST sponsored by queen kat designs! there will be a cool new assignment each friday in february, and a cool prize of QKD stamps for the winner of each!

we kick off with...what else? VALENTINES! yepper, you have until midnight next thursday to submit your best, your coolest, your lovey-dovey-est valentine card for a shot at the goodies.

queen kat design was nice enough to provide the design team with some of their fabulous acryllic stamp sets, which of course were just the thing to get the LOVEFEST mojo started! (to see the gallery with all of our cards and some from the queen kat design team, too, click here.) in the meantime, here is my contribution:

(stamps: queen kat design; patterned paper: bampop, urban lily, love elsie; other: thought balloons made in broderbund printshop, zigwriter, colorbox ink, foam tape)

it's simple, but fun and just a teeny bit funky......hopefully lovely husband jeff will agree! :)

*be sure to say this in your best barry white voice: you can add an "ohhhh bayyybee, bayyyyybee, bayyyyyyybeeeee" too, if you like; but no pressure!

**sorry, i'm gonna have to owe you a similie, ok?

***who is this *BOB* guy anyway? is he any relation to the bob from "bob's your uncle"? and do either of them know "bob the builder"?? ...just wonderin'...
