Add a little sparkle

Pretty easy right?!?
Well, while working on my projects for the month of February I made this one first thinking it would be perfect for Leanne's challenge Love (Last week), then after it was done I thought - Now that has some BLING!  LOL

Here is the inside:

Love is in the Air

Good morning!  Can you believe it is February already!!!  I don't know about where you are but we are having some beautiful weather!  Last weekend I was able to work in the yard - without a coat!!  The end of January in Illinois was one of the best I can  remember!

Well, a new month and a new challenge, and a new Guest Designer over at 4 Crafty Chicks!  

This month we have the lovely, talented Lisa from with us!  A BIG welcome to her!

Leanne is our hostess this week and she gave us the following challenge:


While on a recent trip to St. Louis I came across this adorable hedgehog stamp and immediately thought of my daughter (she really wants a live hedgehog).  I knew this was the stamp for her Valentine card!

The picture just doesn't do this one justice.  It is much prettier in real life!

Here is a shot of the inside.

So, what a great time to get started on your Valentine cards with Leanne's theme of LOVE.  So, head over to 4 Crafty Chicks, welcome our guest designer, leave some love for the Chicks and enter your LOVE card today!

See you soon,
