From the Heart Stamps Blog Hop


Good morning and welcome to our From the Heart Stamps February "Feel the Love" Blog Hop!  Today we are showcasing Valentines and love themed projects.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry.  One lucky commenter will be selected on each DT member's blog to win the image they used.  In addition, one lucky commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store.

If you have arrived from Guest Designer Vickie's blog, you are in the right place; if not you may want to go to the From the Heart Stamps blog so you won't miss anything.

Here is my card for today, using Birdbrain Conversation Hearts:


Isn't she just too darn cute?  My card didn't start out clean and simple; I had initially picked a sketch and some DPs, then colored the image to coordinate.  Well, I just wasn't loving it....  So I picked another DP and didn't really love that either....  I decided to go with the red card base and just let the adorable image shine...sometimes clean and simple is the way to go!  The image is colored with pencils and I've added some glitter accents.

Love how the image is the focal point of the card - I know what you mean about not being able to find the right paper to go with an image. I LOVE how you matted the image - Love that nestie, I just may need to get it myself :-) Beautifully colored too! Dee
