Love Me Do Blog Hop

Welcome to the LOVE ME DO Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can start from the beginning at Bloggabella.



For my card I used the wonderful sketch from Midnight Madness sketches (MMSC40) for this week. I thought it worked out perfectly with Topiarybella. One last Valentine for me this year! Now I just need to get them mailed out.

How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $25 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Friday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! Now it's time to hop on over to Peggy's blog.

Card Recipe: Topiarybella stamp from Stamping Bella, Memento ink, copics, nesties, stickles, spica pen, border punch from EK success, Kaiser pearls, dimensionals, offray ribbon, button, PTI white, Real Red, Basic Black, Gable Green cardstock, and SCWV patterned paper
