Happy Valentine's Day from Crackerbox Palace

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and I am sharing three new Valentines I made with great stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. I had so much fun with the new Valentine stamps I got recently from CBP, I couldn’t stop at one or two cards. And Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it! You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning are below and now you have even more choices of what you can win!
But first- the winner of last Thursday’s blog candy is Leanne!   Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: “Such beautiful cards! Love the sentiment on the first & the idea of a pull out card.”
Leanne, please email me or Vicky your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.
My first card above makes me smile and I hope it makes you smile too. Isn’t the love monkey cute? I colored him up, cut him out and hung him from a clothesline with some heart boxers. 

My second card features some kissing giraffes and a perfect sentiment. The front fence piece swings open to reveal the kissing couple on the inside of the card.

My third card shows how you can make a Valentine with a beautiful stamp that some might not think would work for a Valentine or love card. But this one is for my husband who adores our white cat almost as much as he adores me:) I don’t like to color all that much so I used the spotlighting technique and colored just her eyes (green like our cat) and a little around her head, punched that out and attached on a black frame. I stamped, cut, embossed and sponged the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment with a Spellbinders die.
So would you like to win the stamps featured on one of today’s cards or your choice of another CBP stamp? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:
Vicky or Karen will post a card or two every Thursday on both blogs. All you need to do is to leave a comment on either blog and if you leave a comment on both blogs you will have a double chance to win. We hope you also want to 'follow' the blogs. The following Wednesday a name will be picked at random and the winner will receive:

The featured stamps that we used in one of the cards that were posted,
OR you can pick out a stamp that is worth up to $10.00 and email us your choice
OR Vicky will email you a coupon code so you can go shopping at 
Crackerbox Palace store for your choice of the stamp(s) you would like with a $10.00 coupon.

For a Bonus: if you use the blog candy stamps and post it on your blog, Splitcoast or somewhere else you will be able to choose another free stamp. So make sure you check out one of our blogs on Thursday! The winner will have 2 weeks to contact Karen or Vicky.
So leave us a comment for a chance to win and come back and see us again next week!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at Party time Tuesday and Tuesday Alchemy and the “Hearts Galore” challenge at Bearly Mine Challenges

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen

Those are great new stamps Karen, and three very different cards that are all lovely. That monkey has a very satisfied look on his face!

Leanne said...

Beautiful cards! Love the kissing giraffes with the perfect sentiment.

The boxer shorts are a hoot. The giraffes are so sweet. I especially like how the classy cat became a Valentine.

Loving every one of these, Karen, but since I'm something of a feline lover, the last one with the spotlight technique is my favorite. Gorgeous in black and white with the pop of red from the frame! These giraffes are awfully cute, too. :-D
