Wooo hooo!!! It's BONUS GOODIES Friday!!!

It's been a WONDERFUL week of hopping and I'm excited to finally be able to share our bonus goodies with you today!

First up, he has the sweetest face and the cutest, most chubby body and I WUV's Hamster Cupid from our amazing 2 Cute Ink line......

Our Hamster Cupid set is a **NEW** mini sized stamp set with the main focal image measuring approximately 2 x 2.5 inches. This makes him cuter AND quicker to color! With sentiments like "Big Love" and "GOTCHA" he's sure to put a smile on your Valentine's face!

Here's what I made featuring this chubby lil' guy... I'm not sure I can part with this card! THAT'S how much I love it!

I stamped him right onto the oversized sentiment flag from our Flags and Tags that he fits! Sweet, right? I can hear your "awws", LOL!

NEXT up is a set I love just as much. I'm anticipating this set growing wings and flying off the shelves as I received loads of requests for a die set like this. Introducing Of the Heart dies and coordinating sentiments!

And even though these were highly requested I couldn't just stop at heart dies with our signature perforated detail. I thought it would be super fun to include this cute little arrow die. Of the Heart is a one piece die which will cut all 4 pieces with only one pass through your cutting machine. When I envisioned a coordinating stamp set for these dies I saw cutey, little, clean and simple note cards with almost an "I wrote it myself" sort of feel and this font does just the trick! I'm LOVING this neatly written grouping of sentiments. My Fave is "Love Ya" because it fits on the largest heart and the sentiment "For you, lots of these"!

Brace yourselves, I have a whole bunch of pictures to share with you of projects using the Of the Heart set.

First, I have been wanting to make these pop holders for like EVER and I finally had the perfect "petal" to use. I cut out 5 hearts and punched a small hole in the bottom of each, stamped each heart with "Love Ya" added a circle over the center and pushed a Dum Dum lolli right through and tied off the "stem" with green baker's twine.

Wouldn't these make great treats for classmates for Valentine's? I think I'll make a bunch more. This came together super fast!

Here is a note card I made using our heart dies and some of the dies from our new Flags & Tags set and using the stamps U & I from the coordinating Of the Heart stamp set. These letters are individual so that you could say I {heart} U as well!

Last but not least and maybe my favorite of my hearts projects is a card with multi hearts. This also came together super fast after several passes through my cutting machine and simple touches of vellum scallops and a coordinating sentiment on our double ended banner die!

Gosh I just love these hearts!! I hope you do toooooo!!! could I forget?! As an added fun and versatile option the smallest heart in the die set is the PERFECT match to Sweet Bee's wing!!!!!! Oh, think of the fun options there!

Now, if you're still here, you're awesome! I'll have you head on over to Emily Leiphart's blog as I know she will have something fun for you today! THEN, after you continue on your hop today you can head on over to the LID Store and pick up these goodies and your other favorites from this week!!!!

Thanks for making it a GREAT week! Leaving you with one more shot of my most favorite project from this week using our Flags & Tags set...I couldn't help it! LOL!
