**This is my second post today, please scroll down to see my Fresh Squeezed Stamps project**
Every day I drive thirty minutes to work, starting at the same dashboard for years and years. It is my quiet time to think, and my thoughts usually turn to stamp design. As a designer of stamps, I'm always on the lookout for missing items, themes or sets in my large arsenal. What I sorely lacked was a set "for the guys," especially a Valentine's set, and one day I realized that it had been staring at me in the face on my drives to and from work!
It is the fourth day of The Craft's Meow's November Release! (You can read more about the releases at The Craft's Meow!) The design team members are showcasing a fun, versatile set called Zoom Goes My Heart, designed by me. I think this set is perfect for the Mr. in your life, the boys in your life...or those ever-elusive masculine cards. Not only does it contain some valentine's sentiments, but also has birthday and anniversary usage as well!
For my card today, I stamped one of the speedometer images with black ink onto a die cut circle and mounted it behind two strips of pink patterned paper onto a grey card base. A heart was die cut and then mounted to the speedometer for a bit of whimsy. I also chose to add an additional detail by stamping a line of pegs too, and then finished the card with two sentiments from the set.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this set, you can see more of it showcased on the participating design team members' blogs, as they did a fabulous job. You can be eligible to win Zoom Goes My Heart from The Craft's Meow by visiting the blogs and leaving a comment!
