I'm still alive!

I am so sorry I haven't posted this month.  I mentioned at the blog hop that I had been a little under the weather and it wasn't far from the truth, but I do have a reason to be feeling ill. :)

I've been working on a 2 page layout that I promise will be posted soon!  It still needs a few touches to it and I'm not quite sure what I want to do yet, but it's finally getting close. I've been missing being crafty!  Now that I'm starting to feel a little better I'm ready to get busy again. :)

Feel the Love Blog Hop!


Hello there and welcome to the Feel the Love Blog Hop!  If you've just come from Jill's blog  then you're on the right track!  If not, please head to the beginning over at Jamie's blog: Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My!  Make sure to comment on each blog!!

My family doesn't really celebrate Valentine's Day, but we do usually give each other a card.  I actually bought my husband a store bought card (gasp!!) but it was too cute to pass up! :)  This card is a little girly so I'll probably send it to a family member.

To make this card, I cut a sheet of 8.5x11" paper in half.  I inked the edges, ruffled the paper border to make it look a little more distressed and used Zots so that "Be Mine" could be popped up.

Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye - Penny Lane
Cardstock: DCWV
Ink: Tim Holtz - Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Ric Rac: CTMH
Paper border: ColorBok
Adhesive: Glue Glider Pro, Zots
Stamp:  Stampabilities
Bling: Hero Arts

Your next stop is Kathy's blog!  If you'd like to win a chance for Blog Candy all you have to do is become a follower and make sure to leave me a comment with a way to contact you!  On February 7th, I will use to choose the winner!  I've been a little under the weather lately so sadly I haven't been able to go shopping.  (I know, I know!  I'm missing out on all the fun new products!)  So for my blog candy I'll give you a $15 gift card to A Cherry On Top.  That's one of my favorite online shopping stores!!
