Cardz TV Design Team "I {Heart} U" Blog Hop

Welcome to the I {Heart} U Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from http://www.itsmesusanp.blogspot.com , you are headed in the right direction.  The theme for the hop is to make a card or other project for Valentine's Day.  My card for the hop is a Napkin Fold card.  I really love these kinds of folded cards.  For the sentiments on the hearts as well as in the middle of the card, I used two sets of Cardz TV Stamps.  The Be My Valentine and Cherish came from the "Be My Valentine" set.  The Kiss Me!, You & Me, I {Heart} U!, My Love, and the Hugs & Kisses are from the "Hugs & Kisses" stamp set.  Please check out Mary's awesome stamps.
     

For the hearts, I used the Stampin' Up! full heart punch as well as a small one.  The red glitter lips are from Recollections at Michaels.
For Mickey and Minnie I used the Mickey & Friends cartridge.  I cut them out at 4 inches for all of the layers.
The papers are from a K & Company stack and a Recollections Valentine pack.  I used a Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page set.

Now what would a Blog Hop be without BLOG CANDY!  Mary over at Cardz TV is giving away 2 sets of Cardz TV Stamps!  Winners choice!!!!  She will be using Random.org to pick a winner and announce the winner on Monday February 13th.  All you have to do is leave a comment on Mary's blog to be entered.  You have until midnight E.S.T February 12th.  Now, I have some blog candy of my own.  I am giving away an EK Success punch.  I love this punch!  All you have to do to be entered is become a follower and leave me a comment.  If you are already a follower, just leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you.  Hop on over to see the rest of the Design Team's awesome projects.  Next up in the hop is DeNetra.
