Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E.

Coffee & Tea for You & Me

So on to today's card, It is a valentines card that you could make to give to a child. 

So to make this card I have first punched the corners with a 
EK Success corner punch, I have used paper from DCWV Sweets paper stack.  The image is from Cricut A Childs Year and it has been embossed using the Cuttlebug folder "Love Language".

The heart is Fiskars crazy heart punch that was the perfect size to fit the sentiment onto.
The sentiment is of course from K Andrew Designs Stamp sets!!

The Everything... is from Coffee & Tea Treats and the Love..
 is from Coffee & Tea for You & Me. 

So to make these stamp sets yours order them from K Andrew Designs HERE

 If you Buy $25 worth of stamps, you will get the Mini Heart Bonus Set for FREE!!

Very cute card! I've been wanting the A Child's Year cart for a long time; lucky you. As far as my favorite K Andrew Designs stamp set -- there are so many wonderful sets that I can't say any one particular one is my favorite. However, not counting the new releases, I do think I would use Positive Thoughts the most. Thanks for the chance to win!
