Papertrey Ink February 2014 Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Today I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink February 2014 Blog Hop.  The challenge is to create a Spring themed project and here is the inspiration photo:

My Spring themed project is a card using Spring colors and cute new stamp sets from Papertrey Ink!

Today my Spring colors are Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Pretty In Pink and Whisper White card stock.

I love the bright Spring colors and the CUTE NEW stamps sets!!  I used Circle Scribbles Stamp Set first, and created a background on the Whisper White card stock.  Then using the matching die and the Sweet Speech Stamp Set I stamped the Hello.....oh. my. goodness!!

I love the font on the Sweet Speech stamp set, so very a d o r a b l e!!!  And those little flowers and leaves......

And the Circle Scribbles, I just love the background they create!  What a fun stamp set!! 

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed this Spring themed card!!  Have a lovely week!!

OH!!  And don't forget to go and check out all the beautiful projects created for this blog hop, there right HERE!

i carry your heart with me......

Oooohhh  Happy Super Bowl Sunday to you!  Today I just want to see the trailer for the continuation of my favorite show "24" with Jack Bauer (aka Kiefer Sutherland)!!  Oh and the commercials too!!  I did see a cute one with puppies and one of the Budweiser clydesdales!  Sooooooo cute!!  And I just love those big, strong clydesdales!  So enjoy the Super Bowl!!

On to bigger and better things!  Rubber-stamping, paper-crafting!!  Yay!  Today I am participating in Papertrey Ink's Capture the Moment - Make it Monday #150 - Window Screen Cards!  Whew!  I like this idea, using a die to make a window screen, it really adds some texture to the card!!  Here is Melissa Phillip's card:

How pretty is this?  I just love all of Melissa's creations!  She's kinda shabby chic with lots of romance!!  She used a heart shaped window and I love the die she used inside!!  And the frame around the heart, just lovely!  Annnnndddd  here is my card:

I used a rectangular shaped window with the Hearts Die by Papertrey Ink on the inside...  Perfect for Valentine's Day!  

After you use the hearts die, you have all of these little hearts just waiting to be stamped!  Using Pretty in Pink and Strawberry Slush inks, I stamped with the coordinating Happy Hearts stamp set from Papertrey Ink.

I off-set the stamped hearts to keep things interesting!  Then, using - The Best is Yet to Be stamp set from Papertrey Ink, I stamped the sentiment, "I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart) e.e. cummings".
This is my favorite poem, I think I first heard it in the movie "In Her Shoes" and had to look it up.  I then shared it with my brother when his wife passed away from cancer, he loved it and carried it in his wallet.....  I think the love felt in this poem can be a romantic love, or a very strong love you have for anyone in your life, spouse, child, sibling, grandchild, mom, dad, friend, etc.....

The sentiment is stamped on a die from American Crafts.  It just happened to be perfect for this card!!

I added a little bit of ribbon, to add some shabbiness and romance..

And then I took a ton of pictures, every view possible, because I like to take pictures of pretty things.... :-)

And here is the inside, another nice sentiment, "Grow old with me, the best is yet to be - Robert Browning", another good one!!  And finished it off with Happy Valentine's Day!

I like the way it turned out, and I hope you do too!  
And I had some left over cake pop dough, SOOOOOOO I had to make some heart cakepops!  Now these were super yummy, I don't know what it was about them, maybe because they're really big, but they were good!!  And of course you have to add sprinkles!!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!!  Yummy!

Well thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Enjoy the super bowl and see ya soon!!
