"Lots of Love" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Lots of Love" blog hop.   I am so glad you have joined us today! This will be a quick and inspiring hop for your Valentine's Day crafting as there are only 8 stops along the way. 

If you came from visiting Melin at My Paper Crafting then you are in the right place. If you just happened by, our hop starts at Melin's blog so be sure to head over there and start at the beginning.

I created two Valentine's Day cards for today's hop for two of the little people in my life.   The first card features the PaperCraftingWorld.com "Bee Mine" cutting file.   This cute little bee was a breeze to cut and put together and it is oh so cute!  (There is also a companion digi stamp available.) 


I pop-dotted the die cut and added some tiny pom-pom on the bee's antennae.  The wings were embossed using the Cuttlebug swiss dot folder.  Some chalk and pen detailing finish off this cutie.  My finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

The second card is a little squirrel-y!  LOL!  This PCW cutting file also has a companion digi stamp.  This adorable little guy is called "Nuts About U Squirrel".


The heart and hands are pop-dotted for dimension.  I inked the edges of the ivory paper with a light brown ink pad.  Chalk and pen detailing finish it off.

To sweeten up the hop, we are giving away a $20 gift certificate to PCW as well as picking one person from each blog that leaves a comment for a free single svg or digi of their choice from PCW (sets no greater than $2.00).

The gift certificate will be drawn from one person who leaves a comment on any one of the eight blogs participating via random selection.

The individual winners will be selected via random selection by the comments left on each particular blog.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog so you can increase your chances of winning!

Now on to the next stop in our hop . . . Larelyn at Handmade From My Heart.
