QKR Stampede Valentine's Day Blog Hop!

Hi there! Welcome to the QKR Stampede Valentine's Day Blog hop! I am so excited to be a part of this hop. There are so many awesome Valentine's themed projects for you to see today. My fellow DT ladies...do NOT disappoint! Don't forget to leave comments on each blog of the hop for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the QKR Stampede Store. WOW!!! Now that is a treat! If you are starting here, you will want to head back to the QKR Stampede Blog for the complete details on how to win, and for a list of the hop order. That is handy in case you get "Lost" along the way...lol. Now onto my card. Isn't this image so pretty???!!! I had to have it when I saw it. It is called Love Words. I thought it was neat to see all the languages in the shape of a heart. This image would also be nice for a wedding or anniversary card. For my card, I stamped the image with Versamark, and embossed with silver embossing powder. Then I used a sponge to add some pink, and to show the heart shape more. Since I had the sponge out, I decided to go a little ink distressing crazy too...lol. I ink distressed the edges of all the papers on the card. I layered the image on to some dark grey PP from SEI, and the printed paper is from the Target $1 spot. Last I added some embellishments. Little side note...all the embellishments on this card were my 6 year old daughter's idea...lol. She kept handing me things to use. First she found this heart paper clip on my table (which I had forgotten about), and asked me to use that. Then I needed something for the corners, so she went and pulled out these pink pearls, and said "How about these mom?"...I just love this kid =). Now I had to stop her, because she wanted me to add more, but sometimes less is more. Well that is all I have for you here, so I am going to send you off to see my DT friend...




Check out her project. And don't forget to leave comments along then way! If for some reason you get lost, please head back to the QKR Stampede Blog for a complete hop order.


This card is also for the following Challenges:
Do You Stack Up 3 - Think Pink
7 Kids College Fund - Challenge Yourself - ink distressing is not something I do often, and using paperclip as an embellishment.
Whimsie Doodles - Hugs and Kisses - love is all about hugs and kisses!
Cupcake Craft - Wedding - I think the image is perfect for a wedding.
