My final CDS Jan sneak - "Kisses and Cookies"

 Well, I'm glad you popped in to see my last sneak peek for January. This one is Clear Dollar Stamp's STOM ( Stamp of the Month). You can get it free when you purchase $50 worth of goodies.
The set is called "Kisses and Cookies" and it is another one illustrated by Laurie Wilson. Isn't it sweet!?!
I stamped the images in Versa mark and embossed them with gold and silver before I ever started my card. I was going to pick which image I liked best for the card but could not choose so....I did two!

By using browns and golds, I have illustrated that this set does not have to be a "Valentine set" although it is AWESOME for that! Just check out all of the pretty pink and red cards some of the other DT's have done.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
My Time To Craft - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
ABC - "K" is for Kissing (Mine has a little twist on the theme! LOL!)

Card Recipe:
CDS STAMPS USED: Kisses and Cookies

I can't comment on all of your cards, True because I have only just discovered your blog and I could be here all night but this one is striking! I love the papers, the stitching and the embossing! It's positively kissable! Warmest wishes, Lesley
