Happy Valentine's Day for Joyful Stars Blog Hop

If you are looking for the latest Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post please go here.

Welcome back to a wonderful new year with new Close To My Heart products.  There are a lot of delightful new products to be seen in the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog (good until March 31) and I'm sure you'll see great examples of artwork when you follow this blog hop of Close To My Heart consultants.


If you are coming from Cindy Leek's blog you are on the right track.  

My Valentine's Day card features Heartstrings paper from the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog and gold foil stickers from the January Constant Campaign called Noted

     White Daisy CS
     Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the heart doily
     Gold Embossing Powder
     Heartstrings paper
     Gold Foil stickers from Noted paper kit (special for January National Papercrafting Month)

I followed the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch to make this card.  I'm also entering this card into the Heart2Heart challenge--something old (Art Philosophy, gold embossing powder) and something new (Heartstrings paper and Gold Foil stickers)

Now it's time to head on over to Nancy Brown's blog to continue on the Joyful Stars blog hop. If you get lost along the way please visit Joyce's blog for the complete lineup.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie
