I don’t know about you, but it feels like just yesterday I was hearing a prediction about winter ending soon, followed by dropping temperatures with three snow storms and now I am looking at what to create for the spring holidays. ♥Where in the world did February go?♥ Before it comes to an end, I want to send a quick reminder about my upcoming workshops and monthly specials.
I have two (no three) workshops in March that you can sign-up for. I would love for you to join me at the March Coffee & Cards, I Heart Us Scrapbooking Workshop, or Create with Cricut™ Workshop. I also have quite a few $5 Friday Fun Classes coming up. All you have to do is make a purchase on my website and you can take one of my online classes for ONLY $5.00. ♥GO TO THE EVENTS CALENDAR
We had THREE incredible specials this month that you will want to take advantage of. If you are a member of the Create with Miss. Carrie’s Creations Facebook group, you have had a chance to ♥see me create♥ two of the cards from the Love Blossoms Card Kit. This kit has been one of my favorites so far. ♥PURCHASE THIS KIT
We are also giving away FIVE FREE stamps sets to anyone who becomes a consultant and joins our HeARTfully Blessed Creations team. When you pay the $75 sign-up fee you receive the $85 in stamps, a $210 kit, and a $50 product voucher! ♥ JOIN OUR TEAM
Last, but not least, in January we introduced the our adorable Heart Happy special. At the end of the month, you will no longer be able to purchase these, and I promise you will regret it. I have already stocked up. ♥ I WANT THAT PAPER
For such a short month, there was a lot to remember. That is why I always send out these little notes each month. I know that I am always one who forgets and then regrets when it is too late. Please feel free to post a comment if you have any questions or want to know more about joining this amazing company.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
Creating cards for boys can be a challenge, especially ones who are 6.5’+ bearded bears who find your “mom feelings” a bit too mushy for their taste. The other challenge, when creating these Valentines, is to make sure they aren’t too frilly and have a slight sense of “dad humor” added. Yesterday, I posted my “I Dig You” Valentine and, today, I am showing you another way to use the Something Fierce collection and add a little “pun” to your cheesy Valentine collection.
Did you giggle a little?♥ To tell you the truth, I rolled my eyes once I was finished, and my husband just laughed at the irony of it all, so I knew it was a perfect card for one of my sons. When I first began this project, I knew that I wanted to use the T-Rex Image , but I couldn’t quite figure out how to use a Raspberry colored dinosaur for a “boy” card.
Out came the Love of Color Book and I was able to find some other colors that would tone down the pink and make this appear more masculine (as masculine as you can get for a Valentine) I realized at this point that it would be a perfect entry for the Heart2Heart Love of Color and the Sunday Stamps Pretty in Pink Challenges.
After deciding on the color palette and the images, I thumbed through my stamp collection to find a sentiment that would fit this monstrous beast. Wouldn’t you know it, the A Piece of My Heart stamp set had the perfect sentiment to make this silly card. 🙄
Please take the time to stop by the Heart2Heart blog and see the other creations for this challenge and make sure you stop by tomorrow for one more cheesy dinosaur valentine.
