Love, Love is Strange (Denise's Sweet Heart Blog Hop)

February 14, 2011

Sweet Heart Valentine’s Day Blog Hop
This hop is hosted by Miss Denise at Designs from My Heart. This hop runs Monday to Wednesday (Feb 14 to 16). If you came from Dianne's Scrappy Creations, you are on the right path.

On this Hop we'll show you Valentine's Day cards that we would like to receive from our sweetie. I know, love is strange! Admit it! Sometimes your honey needs a push for those special occasions. Mine does! (I start planning my own birthday weeks in advance!)

Yes, we know that they love us. But (there's always a but) . . . We do appreciate a tangible reminder now and then! Cards. Latte. Chocolate. Flowers. Diamonds. . . . Crafting Goodies!

I thought I should do my part. No, not give myself a card signed by my groom! I thought, perhaps I need to show him a little lovin. You know, set an example. My hubby is self-employed and we have 3 kids. We do not get much down time together. So, I think I will take him out for coffee. Just the two of us!! Time alone.

I will start our "date" with this card. I created both elements myself: I drew the cut file and created the digital stamp. I used Pazzles' Inspiration personal cutter and Adobe Illustrator for this design.

The cups and saucers are cut from embossed paper--classy. Here I went with a purple color set. A lightly striped green/white/purple paper is backed by purple paper and finished off with the "steam" printed in purple as well!

Enjoy this cozy cup of Latte for two. I do have two cards of the same available in the Valentine section of my Paper Cafe. (You can use them for other occasions! Hint, Hint!)

I invite you to your view my previous post. It also has a "Valentine & Latte" theme. But do draw your attention to the paper flowers. It is really the first time I have made more then one flower at a time. I am so pleased with how it turned out. Must be the paper--Core'dinations!!

Blog Valentine Candy
What’s Valentine’s Day without some sweets?! For this hop’s blog candy I will be drawing one name to win this raft kit to create your own Artist Trading Cards. I think it makes 5 cards.

Well, you know what to do. Be sure I can get a hold of you somehow. As of now I can only ship to the continental US. (Sorry)
