LOTV Designers Mini Blog Hop!!!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!  Has everyone taken care of their sweeties?  I know my sweetie will be out of town. AWE!

Well the LOTV Design team have something fun for you today! We are celebrating Valentine's Day with a mini hop!  Yep, several of the design team are showing you a card or project today using the adorable "Times To Treasure" stamp!  We will have some candy for 2 lucky winners too!  All you have to do is post a comment on each of the DT listed below and two of our DT will draw from their comments and 2 people will win a stamp from Lili of the Valley! Easy!  Here is my card for the hop:

This is the list of Design Team members who are participating in the hop.  Be sure to visit them all!

Dena (me)
Lena 


Not a really Valentiney card now is it? haha! Sorry, I was having some "issues".  At first I started out making a napkin fold card, then after it was all folded, I hated it! Yuk!!! So I couldn't let the papers go to waster so I just cut it up and plopped it on a brown piece of cardstock and I like it so much better!
 Colored with distress inks!  The papers are Pion Designs (love them!)

 My flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I think the pink Hellebores with the coffee brown roses are just gorgeous together!!!

I sure hope you have fun on the hop.  I know you will be inspired!

Thank you for visiting!

Hugs, Dena

  59. Oh Dena, another masterpiece from you i love this card, that sounds like me, i start with one idea and my cards always take a different turn and never end up how i intended them to, lol.....i wouldnt be surprised if we're all like that at least once every few makes.
    I thought that was Primas Romantique i was just about to say you've used my favourite pad at the moment, but its not, its very similar then, i cant get enough of the Romantique pad lol cant get hold of many Pions over here. Well im going to hop off now and thank you for having a hop today what a good idea that was! hugs to you dear Dena, Vick xxx
