Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop - Love & Romance are in the Air!



Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Deco Divas – Love is in the Air Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of Karalee Ingram then you are in the right place. Otherwise, you might like starting from the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to become eligible for one the four great prizes.

One lucky person will win the Grand Prize - a Stamp Set of the winner's choice mounted on cling cushion. As you visit each artist's blog, there is the possibility of winning one of THREE more prizes! It's a secret though. No one knows who "those three" are...so be sure to leave a comment on EACH blog to be eligible (including the SNS blog).

Here's my romantic card for the hop:


I used the "Mary" image.  I love this sweet angelic image.  I think she's perfect for wedding showers and romantic Valentine cards and she's so fun to embellish.  I made it in a size that can be mailed in a regular business sized envelope...no extra postage!  You can find a supply list and full instructions HERE on the SNS site.
