Love is in the Air Blog Hop

Good Morning!  Happy Saturday!  It looks to be a gorgeous day here in my neck of the woods, the sun is shining finally after 3 days of miserable gray.  Now yesterday was the start of a weekend long customer blog for Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  Everyone who wants to play along will receive an adorable free digi and a chance to win a $25 shopping spree!!  All you have to do is create a card or project that is love themed and use any Sweet n Sassy Stamps (stamps or digis) and link up.  So easy and so much fun.  Already there are some pretty awesome cards linked up so you're going to want to hop around and check back throughout the weekend for more links.  Here's my card....


I kept my card fairly simple - the same I feel that love should be.  Simple... plain... just out there with no embellishments.  My card features Cocoa's Heart and a sentiment from the Valentine's Sentiments digi set.


Now here's a close-up of the image and you can see that I did some pretty intricate cut work - again, another definition of love - love is complicated and intricate and has all these little details to it.  Love should be obvious but with a intricacy to keep it interesting.

Challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Valentines Day
Crazy 4 Challenges - Hearts
Card Patterns - sketch
Our Creative Corner - fussy cutting

Now to join in the hop visit the rules page here.  To link your project, you do that here.

I hope you like my card and thank you so much for stopping by.  Be sure to head on over to the SNSS Store, too, there's a clearance sale!!!
