Purr-fect Valentines Card Using Love Cats Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!s Spring Mini Catalog. Quick and Easy Card For You!

LET'S GET STARTED:
A new catalog is always so exciting! Stampin' Up's new January-April Mini Catalog is filled to the brim with wonderful new stamp sets, Designer Series Papers, Dies, Punches, and Embellishments. I am highlighting one of these new sets below. You will be able to order the products below starting tomorrow, January 5 until May 1, 2023.

Are you a cat lover?  I love Siamese cats. My family had three different sets over my childhood years. Unfortunately as I have aged, I am now allergic to their dander. I still think felines are lovely to look at from a distance, I just can't touch them anymore. So that is why this stamp set caught my eye. I can play with cats, just in a different form.

If you have cat lovers in your life, then the Love Cats Stamp Set will be purr-fect for you to create  extra special Valentines for them.
