Valentine matchbooks

Greetings , I should be sleeping ... But I'm crafting . I wanted to make my son's valentines this year ( last year in elementary school) and was wondering what to do when I saw this weeks MIM @ Papertrey ink ... Problem solved ! I measured mine out to fit a snack size skittles , I'd show you that too ... But I ate them after I measured . Oops ! I picked a dog and a cat for the stamped images , goes good for the "Best Friends " theme @ SSS Monday challenge . So now I just need to find the time to make and color 23 more ... Thanks for visiting .
