Valentine's Blog Hop!!!!!!! (and a Giveaway!)


Welcome to the Valentine's Blog Hop!!!! I hope you're as excited as I am!

You should be arriving here from Stacia's blog. If you aren't, please go back to the beginning at Amanda's blog and start there.

Now, onto the hop. If you don't know the deets, here it goes: All the ladies in the hop were sent the same products to create a Valentine's card with. {A product list can be found below}. So, here's what I created:



My hubby is definitely my funny love every day of the week, so I really wanted to create a card that showed how much I appreciate him making me smile every day.

Products given and used:
Given: My Minds Eye and Pink Paislee (paper), The Twinery, Paper Trey Ink (dies for buttons), Kaiser Crafts (bling)
Extras Used: Cardstock (pink salmon background and off-white), heart ribbon (Pinecone Press kit), Slice holiday expressions cartridge (Valentine), Studio G (mini alphabet stamps), ink, adhesive.

For this card, I began with an {off-white} cardstock background, adhered the pink salmon cardstock and distressed the edges with sandpaper. I then added the {flower} paper, inked the edges, wrapped the heart ribbon around to create an 'x,' and adhered to card. Next, I adhered the die cut {red flower paper} to the card and tucked in the "Valentine" word. I adhered the buttons which I covered with paper {striped} and inked. Lastly, I hand-cut a ribbon strip, inked the edges, and stamped "my funny" and adhered to card.

Now, before you move on, time for the giveaway!
