Stampin' Up Sale-A- Bration Best Day Ever Valentine's Day card

Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration Countdown!!

I don't know about you but the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalog is OVER THE TOP!! I just love it all!! WOW! If you need a copy of either, I would be happy to send ya one, email me at So for the next 5 days I am gonna have a card or project to share from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. If you are not familiar with Sale-A-Bration, it's the biggest sale of the year for Stampin' Up. For every $50 you spend, you get to pick FREE STUFF!!! Wow what's not to LOVE!!

So today, I wanted to share this super cute DAD Valentine's Day card that I made using the Best Day Ever stamp set from Sale-A-Bration that I got for FREE!! I made this card using the color combination challenge from Create with Connie and Mary CCMC336 and Freshly Made Sketches #167.

So here is my card:

This stamp originally says "Best Day Ever". I placed a post-it note over the word DAY, and stamped in Momento Black ink. I then re-inked it with a  Real Red Marker and stamped the DA, then re inked just the D and came up with DAD!

I thought this turned out so cute! I don't know about you, but my dad really is the BEST DAD EVER!!  ;)

This would make such a cute Valentine's day card!! You could change the colors up and make a Father's day card, or Dad's Happy Birthday card.

I hope you feel inspired!! Sale-A-Bration starts in 6 days!! Can you stand yourself??
