Papertrey Ink Blog Hop January '15

IMG_7372


It's the 25th of January already and time for this month's Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop!

I have not hopped in a long time but this month I could not resist the theme. The jingle bells have been put away for this year and now it is all about hearts. We were asked to make a 'heartfelt' Valentines card decorating both inside and out.


I ordered some new PTI Valentines sets and dies in December and had it delivered to my hubby. It arrived the day after he came home for Christmas, so long story short my December PTI is flying home with him this week.  In the meantime I pulled out some older sets to play with for the Blog Hop.

I created the dimensional heart by stamping the heart from With All My Heart in both red and Hibiscus Burst and then cut out the Be Mine and tiny tag, then adhered it to the red heart with foam tape. I added a few tiny heart and a flourish to finish out the front.

The inside is stamped with a quote from Sending My Love...

I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge Have a Heart!



Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Welcome Trendy Twine to my blog.
