Simon Says Stamp Valentines Day Blog Hop


Love is in the air and Simon Says Stamp has made it even more fun to create projects to show someone that love with their 2013 Valentine’s Day Release. I was asked to create a project using something from this release to share in today’s Valentine’s Day Blog Hop. I couldn't resist the papers that are included in the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit of the month... SO DELICIOUS!!! I wanted to use them all... but had to settle for just a couple on this card.


I cut four 1" strips of paper and used my corner chomper to create the scallop.


Then there were some really CUTE polka dot envelopes... 
I die cut a heart out of one.




And now to the giveaway part! Leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner will receive a Simon Goodie Bag (if you know Heidi, it will be a good one!). We will draw the winner on Thursday morning 1/31/13 at 9:00 AM EST. so be sure to leave your comment by then. 

Thanks for visiting! The next stop in the Simon Says Stamp Valentine’s Day Blog Hop is the amazing NICHOL MAGOUIRK. If while hopping, you encounter a broken link, you can go back to the beginning for links to everyone who is participating in the hop. 

Thanks everyone!  Have fun hopping, good luck and enjoy!!!
