Carved Love


Do you remember the story of how a boy named Billy found the perfect names for his two new red bone coon hound pups carved in a tree? Old Dan and Little Ann. Where the Red Fern Grows has to be one of my all time favorite reads and Carved Love was inspired by that pivotal moment from the story. The birch wood grain stamp is certainly the feature in this set, although there are quite a few other interactive surprises too! This set is perfect for Valentine's Day, Deployment, Anniversaries, etc. ... the list goes on and on.


Courtney more creations on her blog featuring Carved Love-including fabulous cards from Paulina and Dana, and a chance to win this set on her blog! So I'd really enjoy hearing what you think of this set, please be sure to leave a comment! Are you as excited as I am of the releases this month?

Cardstock: (Natural White and Real Red) SU
Stamps: (Carved Love) Practicing Creativity Designs
Ink: (Onyx Black) Versamagic, (Watermark) Versamark
