Happy "HEART" day and a Blog Hop Giveaway!

Can we ever get enough hearts??? I thought today was the perfect day to share this fun find with you. We stopped at a coffee house and when my cup of coffee came, I had to run and get my camera before we could even take a sip!
How cute is this? The first photo is my altered version. I had some fun in my photo editing program and this made me think it would be fun to share it will all of my friends today.
This is the original photo. It looks pretty amazing either way!
I have some great news to share with everyone who visits my blog today and it goes even further then my blog.
Remember I have been mentioning that it is PARTY TIME at CPS (Card Positioning Systems blog) because of our 100th sketch and 2nd anniversary?
Well, the party continues today with a blog hop with giveaways among some of the CPS blog team members.
You have possibly stopped by my blog from Lea's blog. From here, hop on over to Sherry's blog. Each team member will have her own giveaway, so the more blogs you stop by, the more chances you have to visit. Below is a photo of my giveaway. If you are the winner and you already have either of these magazines, just let me know. Leave your comment by 8 pm Sunday night and I will announce my winner on Tuesday morning, so please stop back to check for that announcment. So many times, I can't get back to those who leave comments in order to email you, so checking back is important.
And a Bonus for Valentine's Day is a special card. It is actually a little sneak peek of the CPS sketch for this next week, I just HAD to use these amazing papers from Making Memories.
The heart is part of the design on the reverse side of this patterned paper. I cut it out with scallop scissors and matted that with white cardstock. I accented this all over with dots of red Stickles.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
YOU & ME cardDesigner:
Materials list:
Cardstock – Core’dinations
Patterned paper – Heart Doily Love Notes/Making Memories
Sticker letters – Making Memories
Scallop scissors – Fiskars
Red Stickles - Ranger
Machine sewing
Ribbon
Button
