I{heart}U BLOG HOP!!!




Happy Saturday!!

It's time for the I{heart}U Blog Hop!!! First things first, thanks Mary, for letting me be a part of your wonderful design team!!! If you were just stopping by to visit and would like to join us in the blog hop you may start with Mary at Cardz TV our talented host. We will be showcasing her  Valentine Stamps and she has quite a bit to choose from too!! Mary will also be giving away 2 sets of Cardz TV Stamps  "Winners Choice" leave a comment at her blog for those, but please make sure you visit the other DT Sisters, through out the hop you will find other giveaways, so you don't want to miss anyone!!!

Now onto my project, I am featuring "Our love Story" sentiment from Mary's "Be my Valentine" stamp set. When I seen this I knew I needed an image of a book. The hearts behind it just brings in the love theme. My Minds eye has this lovely "Lost and Found" designer paper, with such rich reds and brown tones....perfect! This will be my husbands card for Valentine's Day and I just want to tell you that one of my sentences I put in the inside goes perfect with the theme of the card, it is; "Everyday we live adds another page in our book." I just love this stamp!!!!
