Indians Blog Candy Wednesday


UPDATE: I am extending the entries until tomorrow afternoon. The winner will be announced at 12:00pm on Saturday. Don't forget that these stamps go on sale tomorrow as well.
Just as promised today I have another The Cat's Pajamas card to share along with a chance to win this adorable set that will be available January 19th. But before I tell you how to enter here is a little info on the card. I used some yummy Crate Paper "Wanted" collection along with some SU Kraft, Real Rust, Sky Blue, Chocolate Chip, and PTI white select. I stamped the images with Brilliance Black and colored them in with my Copic markers. I did some doodling around the edges of the rectangular nestabilities die. Accessories are SU ribbon, copper eyelets, and slit punch. So now for the details on how to win this adorable set. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day. (Make sure its PG rated...hehehehe) Good luck! The winner will be picked by random.org on Friday at noon.
Hugs,
Ana

what a precious card! all the animals' expressions are priceless! that is such a cute set!!! :)

for Valentine's Day - well ideally I enjoy a nice quiet dinner out with my hubby of 21 years, but with 3 teenage boys at home, that isn't always in the plans! :D but I enjoy spending time with my family so much that a movie night with pizza and popcorn is just as much fun! :)

thanks for the opportunity to try for the cute stamps!

Oh! I love this card, it is just so cute. I love when Cats Pajamas create trio stamps, especially those little penguins. I am a huge penguin person…and I love these! Definatly a stamp that will be on my wish list, in fact most of the previews are on my wish list. I love the colors you used on this card, super fun! Now there was a question, what is my favorite thing to do on Valentine’s Day, which is a pretty simple question. I think my favorite thing to do on Valentine’s Day is to give out little treats to the people close to me. I attempt, notice the word, to create either a Valentine or a sweet treat for my family members, a few friends, and my boyfriends family members. It makes the holiday a bit more fun to give out sweets.

Amy said...

I am a major home-body, so I would love to stay home, cuddle up with my husband and watch a movie.

Thanks for the chance-- I'm excited about the new TCP sets.

Wendy said...

What a cute card! I love how you combined the different stamps!

Regina Davis said...

What a beautiful card. Love the vibrant, yet warm colors you used. My favorite thing to do for Valentine's Day is to celebrate it with my hubby out of town. We usually plan at least a weekend out of town and have a great time away from the children and work. (Last year it was two weeks in Puerto Vallarta!)

Donna said...

what a cute card, love the colors you used. My favorite is to go out to eat (doesn't have to be fancy, I just want someone to wait on me)

Kirsten said...

YOU'RE KILLING ME WITH THESE SAMPLES!!! (Yes, I'm yelling! ;)) When are they being released?????

These new stamps are just TDF! Too cute! For Valentine's Day, I like to have dinner and a movie. Thanks!

I enjoy going out to eat and then coming home to relax with my husband. I have started trying a new fun dessert each year, too. Last year was heart shaped meringues (sp?) with a passion fruit custard. Thanks to Martha Stewart for the recipe!

Flossie's Follies said...

OMG, this card is adorable, love it.

Kerry J. said...

That card is too cute!! I love decorating valentine's cookies with my kids - they're so fun!

Janet B said...

Thanks for sharing your beautiful work! It's very inspiring for me.

My fav thing to do on Valentine's day is to spend it with my two sons, and my boyfriend. Nothing better than spending time with my family.

I love these new TCP images! Thanks for sharing :) My fave thing to do on V day is to snuggle up with hubby and eat pizza. Not so romantic, I know, but it's cozier than being rushed through an overpriced dinner at a restaurant. Oh, and there's chocolate for dessert, of course!

leenda said...

LOVE this card! It's a hoot! My favorite thing to do on V-day is going out to eat.

This card is so cute. I love the colours.
My husband dislikes Valentine’s Day. We still love each other after 31 years. We like to have a dinner together and talk about our children. How much we love them.

Jennifer H. said...

I LOOOVE to go out for a nice dinner. I'm also a SAHM to an almost 2 year old boy and a night out would be wonderful!

The stamps are too stinkin' cute!

barbwire802 said...

Your card is just adorable. I've only recently gotten hooked on Penguins and these little guys are so cute. I don't have any Cat Pajama stamps yet, so am waiting for my first one! My favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day is to fix one of my husband's favorite meals and pull out the candles, lower the lights, and have a really nice romantic dinner at home. He just loves it.

Gretchen said...

Ana- i love your work! i don't have any TCP sets (yet) but after seeing your creations, I might have to get some! My favorite thing to do for valentine's day is make each of my kids and my husband their own special valentine and have a "kid friendly" suppper together. (usually pancakes with sprinkles!) Thanks for offering this blog candy!

Gretchen

I love this card!! My favorite thing for valentine's day is going and being with my kids at their class parties at school. It is always a fun day!

Pegg S said...

Your card is just too cute! I can't wait to see the new release! For Valentine's Day, we usually just stay in and have indulge in some chocolate! We've gone out in the past few years and have not enjoyed the "special" menus -- usually special means pricier and not as good! We really love to go out to eat, so will go the weekend before or after!

I'm single so I like to dream about Prince Charming on Valentine's Day. Love the new cat's pajamas!! *penny*

That card is too cute!! I like to snuggle up with hubby and eat pizza and watch a movie (from beginning to end, which is rare). Thanks for the chance to win some treats.

Jane said...

I'd love to say my dh and I do something super romantic, but that just isnt the case. A long time ago, we decided to celebrate each other on our anniversary (11years coming up) rather than V-Day. V-Day is all about the four kids! We make them homemade valentines and I serve a dinner that is heart shaped and as red as possible!!

You are one awesome artist! tHANKS FOR the inspiration! Love TCP cards...tooo cute! Jane

Lisa K said...

I love to have little gifts waiting for my kids! Usually something I've made and some chocolate! Looks like an adorable set!!!! Lisa K

Jan Scholl said...

what day of the week is it on this year? oooh TNT Thursday-two NBA games! all to myslef while hubby snores.

Jennifer-G said...

Wow, great card and super cute stamps!! Thanks for the chance to win!

My favorite thing for V-Day depends on the situation/people. For DH, it's going to dinner (I don't have to cook or clean up, WOO HOO!!). For my DS it's making little gifties for his friends and handing them out. For a few close friends it's making valentines to send to them so they get some happy mail. :)

LeAnn said...

My favorite Valentine treat is NOT to cook and go out to dinner. We like to use that evening to try somewhere new.

Thanks for the great work!

I like to make my Mom and my children a stamped valentine and send a little money in the card so they can buy them some valentine candy.

Sally said...

Well, on Valentine's Day, I would love to go to a fondue restaurant to just have regular fondue...but they always have a special menu.

The stamps and cards are cute, too

Deb said...

We don't do anything special for Valentine's Day. My son and DH always get me a card and a small gift and if I'm lucky I don't have to cook. I sure do love all these new sets. Dropping hints for them to buy me some!

Jen said...

Valentine Day.......hmmmm this year could be really different. I think I'm going to make a special dinner for the kids, and then maybe we'll play a board game. It will be weird starting a new tradition since hubby won't be living with us this year.

AmyR said...

Well I guess I can't tell you (you said keep it PG rated!!) *snicker*
But I WOULD settle for dinner and a movie!!

Andrea said...

Super cute Ana! I love splurging on a hot fudge sundae with my honey!

What a darling card!

Valentine's Day is just another day around my house - really! We just hang out kid's & all & have a yummy dinner & perhaps a sweet treat!

MJ said...

The more sneak-peeks I see with these sets, the more excited I get! They are so adorable!
My Valentine's Day are pretty uneventful, my hubby knows that I would rather have a gift cert from my LSS than flowers. Our ritual is to go have breakfast or lunch away from the kiddos. I am pretty simple, no flair to me : Stamps and Good Hamburger are heaven to me on Valentines! Thanks for the chance to win such goodies, is it the 19th yet??

Karen said...

Super cute card!! Honestly - it's been a long time since we actually celebrated V-day, so I suppose it would be a nice relaxing evening. Oh and of course, candy - can't forget that! :)

Justme said...

These are VERY nice cards! I'm new to the site and the blogs and most of these stamp lines. Donna

Judy in Indiana said...

We always have a neighborhood dinner on Valentine's Day. We invite over several neighbor families and I made Chicken Tettrazini to feed the masses. It works out well, almost no one has abaysitter and goes out for alone time, especially when Val Day is a weeeknight.

Sharon in NE said...

AWWWWW!!! I can't stand it!! These stamps are so dern cute!!! (Sorry, I just came from Leigh's blog.) Ana!! You did such an amazing job making them come to life!!! I just love Poochie with his little paddle in the water. And Alma and her designs with the penguins!! Okay, I'll quit yammerin'...for Valentine's Day, its usually dinner out with my husband...BUT, if it's a new "Office" that night, then, maybe we'll have dinner IN. :D

karen m. said...

EAT CHOCOLATE and smel the roses!!!!!
Love you blog!!!
thank you for sharing

Linda SS said...

That has got to be one of the cutest cards I've ever seen! I like to go out to dinner with my hubby on V-Day. A box of my favorite chocolates would be nice too:)

Allison said...

Come on lucky #57! Ha!

What will we do? Probably gorge ourselves on chocolates while the kids scream in the basement (a good kind of nutty screaming...not that we have tied them up or anything). Say...wait a minute...JK!

I like to try to think of something sweet to do for my boyfriend, like get a babysitter or cook his favorite supper. Nothing to exciting!

Christine said...

Without any family living nearby, and no babysitters...with two kids and a baby on the way, it's hard to have a "night on the town" alone with dh, but I really enjoy spending a family Valentine's Day together...maybe making hearts shaped cookies with the kids and then having an nice dinner out with the family... (I know, it doesn't sound all that romantic, but it's definitely special to me) :-)

Tracy H said...

This is AWESOME!!!

I haven't seen these little dudes anywhere yet. WOOOHOOO! I really must have them!

Ahhh Valentines--my favorite thing is spending a lovely evening with my sweetie and feeling pampered. No cooking!

CAKVD said...

Lovin' this set!! On V-Day, I would like to have my daughter help make a meal and the three of us eat at home...with a chocolate dessert of course!
Thanks!

Lori said...

Oh my! these are the most adorable stamps. I adore penguins. On Valentines Day, for my husbands lunch and the kids I make little heart cakes, I cut the sandwiches in a heart shape and I include a little note to each. While they are gone I make a decorated heart cake for after dinner, which is usally strogganoff.

Those cards are so cute-- I like to make cards and send my valentine wishes to my friends and family. My husband doesn't like Valentine's Day but it is tradition to go outto dinner with a bunch of friends to celebrate the day--- He can tolerate that-- Thanks-- Karen Naber (hpnaber@msn.com)

Marsha said...

Every year I bake and frost a Heart shaped cake for my DH. This will be the 39th year.

Nancy said...

This is just the sweetest card & those images are adorable!! I think my favorite thing to do on Valentines Day is just to spend some quality time with my hubby, or a nice little weekend getaway wouldn't be so bad either! Thanks for the chance!!

Quilt Nut said...

i always make a special dinner at home for all of us. dh and i usually never go out for Vday-his birthday is a few days later so we go out than instead.

love the penguins!

Gerriann said...

Eat Chocolate of course!

Shelly Schmidt said...

I love eating by candlelight and like most other people- eating chocolate!!! I really love Milk Chocolate- Dove or Fannie May!!!
I hope you have a wonderful Valentines day!

Lisa's Blessed A Latte said...

This is Adorable...Love it!!!!

Julesiana said...

I think my favorite thing to do is to eat chocolate on Valentine's day. That is assuming I have finished the cards for my kids and dh.

twinks said...

Love this card!

Don't we all eat chocolate and wait for the rose (even if its cut from my own garden ;D)? At our age, my hubby gets a thrill of finally knowing its Feb 14th, not the 26th. :D

The Crafty Chik said...

I usually make my family each their own heart shaped cookie cake that day. It's a "tradition" I started a long time ago and they all look forward to it now! I try to spend as much time as I can every day with my family and make sure they know just how much they're loved on a daily basis as well! I don't usually wait for Valentine's Day to do that! Some things you just can't do enough of! I am anxious for this set to release though for a different reason! My DH is Active Duty Air Force and his rank is "Chief Master Sergeant". I collect all sorts of things with the indian chief headdress and this is SO cute it will be PERFECT for me! I will use it for Valentine's day or any other occasion I can come up with to send goodies to the office with him! Thank you for the opportunity to win it!

mochamama said...

Oh I love this set!! My hubby and I don't do anything much for Valentines Day, unfortunately, its like any other day to my hubby. But, if I could have something planned it would go like this.....Coffee with the girlfriends in the morning at our favorite cafe'.........a shopping spree to my favorite clothing store........dinner out at my favorite restaurant.........and at the end of it, a hubby (who is not so exhausted from working a 12 hour shift) who is feeling oh so romantic hehehe is this too much to ask for?

Lynn Mercurio said...

How cute is THIS set! I'm lucky that my DH loves to celebrate most any event with a nice dinner out (yeah...no cookin'), so most of our Valentine's Day are celebrated with a lovely dinner and the traditional exchange of cards. We don't really exchange gifts, but if we do, they are small and sentimental.

Thanks for the chance to play along!

Jayne said...

What a fun card! My favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day is run away. My husband kidnaps me from work (which is fine with my boss) and he takes me away to a restaurant that we don't frequent for an intimate dinner for two. He's such a sweetie and I enjoy the mystery. Thanks for sharing.

Pam said...

My husband is on call a lot (funeral director), but if it falls on his evening off, we usually go out for dinner.

How absolutely cute!!! Your colouring is FAB, girl!! My favourite thing to do on Valentine's Day is the same as any other day.....stamp!!! Hahaha!!

Rhonda said...

OMG! I just love this card. It is just precious! Very cute stamps.

My favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day would be to go out and enjoy a nice dinner with my husband and get some chocolate covered strawberries, MY FAVORITE! There is a place close to us that always has those by the dozen during Valentine's. They are so yummy.
Thanks for the chance to win such awesome blog candy!

Toni K (koolnkrafty) said...

First of all, you're very talented!
Next, I love to go out for dinner and get a nice mushy card, but I am married to the least romantic man on the earth. I usually get a box of candy that the kids, no doubt, tell him that he should get for me!

Alex said...

I normally like to cook hubby a nice meal, prob steak, chips and peas, lol cause we don't get to eat this very often, so its a nice treat, that is if the girls leave us in peace long enough to eat it

Thanks for wonderful ispiration Ana and cool candy

On Valentine's Day we cook a romantic dinner together and enjoy it by candlelight and with some soft background music. It is something we should do more often, but life seems to get in the way. Thanks for sharing an awesome stamp set!

I always look forward to the card my husband has made me. Not usually stamped, just hand made and hand drawn. Of course I always take him out to dinner as a special Thanks (see, I win both ways) Thanks Diane

foleygirls said...

My husband works a lot and sleeps during the day, so I spend my "special V-Day" with my kids! We make a special meal together and also I nice desert. We get dressed up and eat by candlelight. I also let them drink out of wine glasses. They get such a kick out of it!! Last year we made heart shaped pancakes for Daddy too! This year they will stamp their own V-Day cards for each other!

Melissa said...

Such a cute set! My favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day is serve things to my kids that are red or pink all day long. I mostly focus on supper. . .but it's fun to see what I can come up with. Last year, it was pizza that was in the shape of a heart. Heart ice cubes that were tinted pink with juice and they drank cherry 7-up. Then strawberries for dessert are always good. It's just fun to make them feel extra special on that day!
Thanks for the chance at an awesome set!

Maren said...

So cute! Love the new stamps!

Favorite thing to do on V-day? Well, my kidos & I always make dinner for my husband. I love the extra "help" in the kitchen and the boys love to pick out the meal!

wendy said...

The excitement of my children is my favorite part. They love getting dressed in red/pink and delivering treats to neighbors, friends, and classmates.

Gina Wrona said...

A few of my favorite things are to make treats not only for my daughter's 2nd grade class, but for my 2nd grade cathecism class.

My fav. thing to do on valentines, would be a nice quiet dinner, a bottle of wine and a hot, steamy bubble bath, but who am i kidding....i've got kids, hahahaha, so that will NEVER happen. One can dream cant they?

Beth said...

What a cute card! My favorite thing to do on Valentine's day is enjoy a quite dinner at home and a movie snuggled up on the couch with my hubby after the kids are in bed. We will often go out for "Valentine's Day" on another day to avoid the crowds.

Michelle Adams said...

I love to stay home & rent a movie! I think it is much more private than going out (cheaper, too! More $ for stamps! LOL!).

On Valentine's Day, I love to cuddle with my husband. We don't have kids yet and have only been married a little more than a year and a half so we just enjoy each other's company on V-Day.

valentine's day is my wedding anniversary [this february will be 22 years of *mostly* bliss]; i hate go out [every place is so crowded] so my favorite thing is grilling steaks and lobster tail for dinner at home :)

TFS such great projects. i LOVE your coloring.

Adorable card! I love these little guys, they are so cute. Well, as boring as it sounds, I would like to spend VD with my hubby and kids with some CHOCOLATE...have a good meal and then be left alone so I can STAMP! LOL!!

Christi said...

What a cute card!! My favorite thing to do on V-Day is spend time with my family and eat chocolate and conversation hearts. :)

Novell said...

I am a bah humbug when it comes to Valentines Day. I think it's ridiculous for a man to have to spend $100 or more on a dozen roses just on this ONE day of the year. So, my DH and I exchange cards instead. I love to help my kids create their Valentine's Day card boxes for school and their Valentines to share with their classmates.

Annelies said...

What a wonderful card!
Since I'm a single Valentine's Day will be like any other working day for me!

Lori Barnett said...

Cute stuff!!! ok....my fav thing to do on V-Day...humm

Well I would have to say that getting to be child-like with my kids. I like to get silly little handmade cards from my kids. I also give them silly little cards with a candy too. For me it's all about being a kid and showing the little ones in my life how much we love them :) BUT I'm not going to turn down a back-rub from my DH!

Kristina said...

This card is amazing! I can't WAIT for these sets.

Valentine's is very low key at our house. I have the most fun with helping my kids my their valentines for their classmates

Susan Liles susiestampalot said...

well, what cute little "indiguins" and the dog makes a great "John Smith" from Pocahontas!! teehee!

That card is just too cute. My favorite thing to do for Valentines is to surround myself with the things (people) I love, my Dh and kids. I wish I could say a romantic evening with my DH but with three kids those will have to wait for a while ha ha.

We usually don't make a big deal out of valentines day. But we'll probably take a breather and sit at Starbucks for a coffee.

Whatta cute card! I love your doodles around the Nesties frame.

Since Valentines happens to be my birthday- my favorite thing to do is NOTHING! Lol! I try to take the day off work and get completely spoiled.

These are just adorable!!!

I have surprised my family by cooking them a very special Valentine's Day meal. I did a search and found copycat recipes for coconut shrimp, red lobster's cheesy bisquits and crab legs. I set the table all in pink with candles and flowers, and everyone just sat around in a state of "AWE"....I think they all thought I was going to tell them something! (like bad, or another baby on the way, or I wrecked the car.....who knows what was going thru their minds...) I just told them how much I love them and that they all mean the world to me! Dessert was that famous "better than sex" cake...YUM!

My favorite thing to do on Valentines is to have a quiet dinner out with my hubby! That's when I give him the special card that I make him every year!

Rubber hugs,

This is just too, too cute!!! Hmmm...what do I like to do on Valentine's Day. This year I'm getting a mammogram. Well, that's no fun. Actually, I just like to fix an extra nice dinner for my family (with some little heart-themed desserts) and have a quiet evening at home. Thanks for the chance to win such an adorable set!

Thanks for the chance to win these fab stamps!!
As far as V-Day...we don't really celebrate it. It's just me and my 2 teen sons, so we just have dinner together at home.

My fave thing to do on Valentine's Day is to sit, watch a chicky movie, like "Going on 30" with my three sweethearts, my kids. I don't have one sweetheart, I have three. They humour me and we watch a movie, we do that a lot but on Valentine's day if it's not a gymanstics day we rent the movie or Princess Bride. Something lovey dovey..oh and we eat tons of chocolate LOL>>>>>

I think my favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day is to stay home and have dinner with my family. I also like to send flowers to my mom to let her know she's loved!

Julie (Joypup on SCS) said...

I love to have sweets and time with loved ones... I am getting more into it, but it turns into Valentine's Week -- or MONTH around here ;^)* Some traditions I do with the kids, some with the entire family, some just with my DH.

I love to have a bath with my DH, followed by a movie in bed with our favorite treats... and if there is dinner in there, we make "finger food" that is easy to eat.

It is all about being together, after all!

Anne said...

Such a cute card- and I am in love with this stamp set!! Valentines? Its all about the candy heart messages, lol....

Ilina Crouse said...

My favorite thing for Valentine's day is a nice dinner which by tradition by husband makes, lasagnas,and eating on candle lights...The perfect thing would be if it's snowing outside!

tiffmc said...

Omg, I just adore your creative talents on this card and can't wait to get my hands on the new set. Pick me, pick me.

Valentines is great to help the kids make their own (stamped) valentine cards to give out to their classmates and teachers and to make yummy candies for their teachers too.

KindredEsprit said...

I always get a cholatey treat from my mum! I like to bake something for my family, such as a chocolate heart-shaped cake or cupcakes. Thanks for this chance!

sweetmom481 said...

You are so talented - the card is adorable!

My fav thing to do on Valentines Day is to stamp most of the day away, then have a quiet finger food type dinner with my hubbie in front of the fireplace while watching a movie. Of course the chocolates are not far away!

Dee said...

Adorable card!...my fav thing to do on Valentines day, is...eat in front of tv while watching "Pretty Woman" with hubby. Love that movie.
I am keeping fingers crossed...hoping I win the cute stamps!
Hugs from Oklahoma, Dee 8^)

jeannen2 said...

Adorable card! Adorable set!
I spend the entire Valentine's Day making everything "valentine-themed" -- we start out with heart-shaped pancakes, then bring in treats for the kids' co-students in school, then make cookies or cupcakes after school which are pink of course! The hamburgers for dinner are even heart-shaped! My husband loves to say I go overboard... yep, I do! Jeanne

Lorri said...

Eat red candy - not chocolates, but red hearts, gum drops, red hots, anything red!

Lorien Clark said...

I like to spend the day with my husband and kids and tell them all how much I love them. Ha ha. Ok that is really mushy!

Lauren (mytime) said...

We like to do Valentine craft's with the kids. Then hubby and I order in dinner. With 3 small kids a V-day out to dinner is not an option. But we still make if fun, and later romantic(wink)
Thanks for the chance! I think I am going to be getting them ALL!

llclsu said...

Well, since I'm a single girl, I guess I have to say I just like to be with family or friends hanging out and enjoying each other. It's always nice to be around the ones you truly love on that day...

A good chick flick never hurts either! ;)

Thanks for the chance to win!

*Jana* said...

This card is adorable!!!

Hi Ana! OMGosh, I didn't know you were a designer for TCP and MFT, 2 of my most favorites companies! I knew you were talented, but wow! How totally awesome! I love these new sweeties and this card is fabulous!

My favorite Valentine's Day tradition is to make a nice dinner for myself and the hubbs and then snuggle on the sofa (along with the furbaby, ofcourse) and watch a movie, although it's rarely romantic as my DH just refuses to watch most movies like that--but I take what I can get. I always look foward to seeing what flowers and card he's going to bring home. He really is sweet, but it's taken quite a few years for him to realize that Valentine's day is important to me and that he better not come thru that door without something on that night! I'll be favoriting your blog straight away! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Emily said...

That is such a cute card!

My favorite thing to do on Valentine's is enjoy a nice quiet dinner! No telling kids to sit in their seats! LOL!

Strangely enough, I really like treating my friends good on Valentine's Day. Oh sure, I have a hubby to lavish with love and attention, but my single friends need some treats too! Thanks for the chance to play!

Oh I just love those stamps! Hope I win them. My fav thing to do is just to spend time with DH, taking a walk or a movie then going out to dinner. Thanks.

Going to a show at the Supper Theatre Club. It is great to watch a superb live show with friends and then digging into the picnic basket and finding food that has been prepared specifically with romance in mind. It's little heart shaped snacks and decadent chocolate for dessert!
Love your cards. Can't wait for the release today.
Cheers
