Papertrey Ink Anniversary Festivities! {plus a freebie}

I cannot believe that it is February again! This is a very exciting time for Papertrey ink as they enter their fifth year in the business! Each year seems to top the previous! Thank you all so very much for your support and love - both for my stamping and my family. We have endured so much that my blessings jar is overflowing!

Today, the Papertrey Stamp Designers are supposed to be sharing our favorite stamp set with you. As a mom to six, there is no real way for me to choose a *favorite*. Like my spectacular six, each of my stamp sets is unique and fun in its own way. It's so hard to choose a favorite stamp set. Last year I had several sets come out and the year was quite a whirlwind for me - with Todd and Karen's traumatic injuries - and life in general. As their healing started to plateau and I got back into crafting, the time I felt most creative was when I was working with Lock and Key. I created in *THE ZONE* and it seems that every single time I took that set out - magic was unlocked (pardon the pun). If you want to see my favorite Lock & Key posts, click {here}.



Now onto the freebie! The image I created is perfect for you to make those last minute Valentines! Super cute - print it on Red, Kraft, Pink, Purple - just about anything and whip up some cards in no time!

Here is my super simple valentine with the freebie!
