Virtual Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us on the Virtual Valentine's Day Blog Hop.  If this is the first blog you're visiting, the next stop (after leaving a comment here, of course) should be at Taylor Usry's blog, The Quiet Moments, where you'll find all the details, the sponsors who are providing the amazing prizes, and the list of talented designers who have made special projects for the hop.  Briefly, to be eligible to win,  visit as many blogs as possible and leave a comment on each one.  The more blogs you visit and leave a comment on, the more chances you have to win; and the prizes are fabulous!  You will be able to post comments until 6 p.m. Thursday, February 17, and the winners will be announced the following day.


I used the glossy red embossing paste on the Dangling Heart stencil (LM272) and while the paste was still wet, sprinkled it with Stampendous ultra-fine pink pastel glitter.  That's all there is to it.  Layer it with your favorite papers and your card is sure to bring a smile to the recipient.


Thanks for visiting.  The next blog on the hop belongs to Kim Reid  at http://kraftinkimmiestamps.blogspot.com/        Be sure to stop by and leave a comment.
Happy Crafting,
Liz
