Hugs & Kisses!

Hi there! Happy Friday everyone. I have SO much going on in the next few days - I'm up to my ears in craftiness :0 But I am not complaining at all....no such thing as too much crafty goodness! I'm sharing a card I made for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Love is in the Air blog hop. Have you heard all the deets about this? I'll share them below, so keep reading!

I used the brand new release Bethany Picking Flowers, which is available today! She's a digi image, so you get instant gratification - I love that. I paired her with a sentiment from the digi set Valentine's Day Greetings, which I think is useful WAY beyond Valentine's Day. You may be wondering why I chose this image for a "Love is in the Air" themed hop. Well, I didn't want to end up with an abundance of Valentine's Day cards I wouldn't use (I'm not sending them to my whole family this year, because I am making small ones for my daughter's whole class). So I wanted to make an all-purpose "love" card. I turned it into a mini challenge for myself, to make a card that didn't use hearts or any other traditional Valentine's stuff. I printed Bethany out twice; the base image has the grass, flower, and butterfly, and the popped up piece is Bethany and her basket.
Here is what I lifted straight from the Sweet 'n Sassy blog about the hop (so nothing gets lost in translation!):
