Valentine's Blog Hop!



Welcome! I am so excited to be participating in my first Blog Hop and I just love Valentine's Day so it's a great theme! I know you've seen some wonderful stuff along the way, and hope you'll enjoy my projects as well. :)



The card is 4 1/2" by 5 1/2". The polka layer is cut at 4" x 5". Red layer is 3.75" x 4.75". The floral background is from French Manor and cut at 4". Circle is from George and cut at 3". Stamp image is from Stampin Up and is called Greeting Card Kids. LOVE this stamp set. Hope they make more with these adorable kids! :) Stamp is colored with Copics. I'm just learning Copics so please forgive my beginner status with that. I need to do some training on those. I free handed the stitching and wrote the sentiments on the hearts for a personal effect.



The Treat Box is from Tie the Knot and is cut at 10". Super easy to assemble! The flower is a Prima. Heart and Hugs & Kisses are also from Tie the Knot and cut at 2 1/2" (I think) for the heart and 3/4" for the Hugs & Kisses.





I hope you've enjoyed my projects and there's one more thing! Blog Candy!! I'm giving away a My World Cricut Cartridge! :) All you have to do is follow my blog and leave a post here by 12:00 pm EST on Monday.
