MY BLOG HOP CARDS:  Valentines Day always has me smiling and wanting to make cards for those that I LOVE.  I made the following three cards  for some special people in my life.

 I used the gorgeous new BE MINE Collection Kit from Echo Park...I really like all their paper lines :)  And of course, I couldn't resist using my Cricut to cut out the adorable animal shapes from Create A Critter cart. It is a little hard to tell in the pics but some of the elements are popped up and make the cards more dimensional.  I also plan on adding a little stickles to jazz them up before I pop these in the mail the first of February.



Thanks for stopping by...if you will please follow my blog AND leave me a comment about my Valentines cards by Sunday, January 9th at MIDNIGHT, I will pick one winner to receive the following Blog Candy prize.  Winner will be announced on Monday, 1/10.  {I extended the deadline because some people told me they do their blog hopping on Sunday afternoon and I didn't want anyone to miss out}.

Yes, you could be the proud owner of the limited edition 3 pack of Stickles in
 lovely Crystal, Silver and Black to add some shine to your valentines projects.  Isn't that yummy ?

Be sure and check back throughout the month for more VALENTINES inspired projects.
AND DON'T FORGET TO HOP OVER TO THE NEXT BLOG IN THE LIST

So adorable!! I am not a true card maker. I wish that I could look at something that small and create as you card makers do. I need room. lol I have made a promise to try to at least move down to mini albums 4 times this year. Maybe next year I will be able to do cards. TFS and thank you for joining in on the hop.
