Totally Sweet Birthday-My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop


Are you ready for lots and lots of Cricut inspiration?  Tonight is your night!  Join me and the other My Pink Stamper Design Team members for the monthly My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop.  {To start at the beginning, be sure to visit My Pink Stamper.  Then go back there at the end to participate in this month's challenge.}

This month's challenge required the following elements {and I must say, it was a bit of a challenge}.
*A pink ribbon
*The color red
*A circle
*More than one My PInk Stamper stamp

I have a video walking you through the entire creation of this card.  So be sure to check it out!  I have also posted the entire blog hop order below for your convenience.

Now, how about a giveaway?  {I know I was a little behind on last month's giveaway, but I'll do better this month...I promise.}  I will be giving away the My Pink Stamper Invitation Only stamp set.  To enter to win this fabulous prize, simply leave a comment on this post and tell me how you plan on spending your Valentine's Day. 

From here, you'll head to Chelle's blog to see what she's created!  Have a wonderful time hopping along!  

{As you're hopping along, I'm currently on a little getaway with my husband to celebrate our 11th anniversary!  I can't believe that such a wonderful man chose me to be his wife!  I am beyond blessed to call him my husband!}

  1. I love the card! For Valentines Day I plan to spend it with my boyfriend. I'm still trying to think of something special I can do for him. It hadn't hit me that Valentines was so close til I heard the news anchor lady say "Valentines is 5 days away!" lol

  20. I really like your card. We usually don't do much, if anything, for Valentine's Day except exchange cards. And, since it's a work day the next day and my son has soccer practice, we won't even be eating dinner together! We'll probably have a somewhat nicer meal the following weekend when we have a little more time to enjoy it. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!
