Creating is Fun Valentine Blog Hop!



If you've hopped here from Shemaine's amazing blog, you are in the right place! If not, you'll want to start at the VERY beginning at Martha's blog so you don't miss a thing! Each DT members has a special prize to give away and there is also a GRAND prize for leaving a comment on each blog participating today.


So, for leaving a comment on my blog - you have a chance to win what is probably my ALL time favorite item from Martha's store - the 5" white doilies! Oh, I love these and probably use them on every other thing I make lately!!! I did use them on one of the cards I'm going to share today actually.


The first card I am sharing uses buttons and trim from Martha's shop. I made this as my Valentine to my hubby this year. Not your traditional colors and yes, it has scallops which might be a little girly, but it's been almost 17 years since THAT boy met THIS girl and I'm happier every day we're together! Actually, it's kinda weird b/c this year we'll be together the same # of years as the AGE we were when we met!!! Eeeek! haha


The second set of cards are simple 3x3 valentines that I made with trim from Martha's store. I used some Helmar 450 Quick Dry to fashion the heart using the white trim and then stapled the trim on the other card while I pleated it. I love how they both turned out!


And my last card....is probably my favorite because it uses that DOILY I'm giving away!!! I am serious, you will LOVE them!! And I can't find a better price on so many. The flower I made running one of these newsprint paper bags thru my cuttlebug with my CC Designs Rolled Paper rose die and kinda smushed it together there as it was SO super thin. I love it.

So, I don't want to be too chatty - if you have any questions about supplies used, please feel free to email me - I've got a button on my side bar just for that! Don't forget, leave a comment on my  blog today for your chance to win a set of doilies and if you comment on EVERY blog today, you have a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to Creating is Fun - it will go a LONG way and you'll get LOTS of fun goodies to play with!!!

Thanks for stopping by and now you're off to visit the amazing Ashley!!
