Made With Love Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today I'm taking part in the Made With Love Blog Hop.


If you would like to start at the beginning, here's the hop order:

Jocelyn Olson <--You are here


Wer're each making a project based on a LOVE theme. Here's a card I made:



It's a submission reject. Actually, it's a two-time reject, but I still love it. :) I used some Ali Edwards digital brushes to stamp the "be mine" repeatedly in the background. Then, the heart and "valentine" stamps from the same set are layered on top.

We were lucky enough to have some very generous sponsors for our hop. I have two prizes to give away.

First up, I'm offering a set of stamps from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps to one lucky person.


Want to see the stamp set? It's a brand spankin' new set called "Breathe:"


Gorgeous, isn't it? Michele at CAS-ual Fridays will ship the set directly to the winner.

I'm also giving away TWO stamps sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to another lucky person. Woo hoo!


In addition to these two winners, there is a grand prize for the hop--a $90 gift certificate to the Ribbon Carousel.

Just hop along to each of the blogs, and one winner will be selected from all of the comments. To enter, please leave a comment on this post by 11:59 EST on Thursday, February 21st. Please make sure I can reach you--either follow my blog on Google, leave some a way to contact you, or check back. I'll announce the winner on my blog.


Next up in the hop is the amazingly clever Miriam Pranter.

Thanks for stopping by!
