Make It Crafty Valentine Blog Hop

Happy Friday!

Well, 2012 was a year of change in my life, and it looks like 2013 is going to continue to bring changes. 

This will be my last post as a member of the Make It Crafty Design Team. The timing is good. There is so much coming up in the spring and summer; it will be good to have the time to take care of life outside the craft world. But don't worry, I will be around now and then, creating just for the love of creating. I hope having the extra time without deadlines will open up my creativity a bit and I will be able to explore new opportunities to grow. 


The theme of today's blog hop is Valentines. 

There will be special prizes throughout the blog hop, so be sure to leave some love on everyone's blog. The prizes for this blog hop will be from the new Geeky Love Wedding Collection. Zoe will give one image from the collection to 6 lucky winners. No telling which image will be where, but you have 6 chances to win one of the different images from the collection.

In addition, for a limited time, Zoe will offer 10% off ALL DIGI stamps. You just need to use coupon code VAL10. This will last until Monday, February 11, so hop on over to the store to get your digi stamps today.

My card today features an oldie but goody! It is called Geeky Love. I also used lots of my favorite embellishments, Chippies!

This cute Geeky Couple is colored with Copics. 

 The sentiment is one of Make It Crafty's adorable rubber stamps, Happy Days Tab Sentiments. I love these unique (and totally Zoe) sayings. I framed it with a label from the N2 Fancy Collection, painted with my paint dauber.

 I used the Butterfly Leaves Chippies for my flowers.

The corner embellishments are Swirly Corners Chippies. Amanda shared a great idea with us to use nail polish on the chippies. It worked like a charm!

I hope you have fun on the blog hop!
