CardMaker and May Arts Valentine's Themed Blog Hop!


Hi Everyone! CardMaker has joined forces with May Arts to bring you a fun filled Valentine's inspired blog hop for you. If you stopped by from Dee Dee Catron's Blog you are in the right place, if not, just head on to the start over on CardMaker's Blog for the full list (or scroll to the bottom of this post.) 

May Arts is also hosting a GIVEAWAY on The Ribbon Resource blog so be sure to make sure you head over there at the end of the hop to enter for your chance to win one of two $25 gift cards to purchase yummy ribbon of your choice! Fun!


The entire CardMaker Blog team was sent ribbon from May Arts and I absolutely loved the big puffy red heart ribbon. I decided to pull out a set I barely (if ever) used when I got it and even though it is a fall themed set I had the idea to replace the little pumpkin with the heart. It took a little masking and strategic fussy cutting but it turned out exactly the way I imagined - don't you love when that happens?!


Here is a close up of the cute little mouse! I just adore the puffy little heart in his arms! haha Cute, right?! Or is it just me!!! Just a little simple coloring for this simple card. I also created a video showing you how this card comes together. Enjoy!

    Love your card! And, that's not really simple coloring - love how you added the shadow. Really made your image pop. I especially like the puffy heart your little mouse is carrying.
