SSIC WAW Valentine Blog Hop

*** This post is a 'STICKY' for the duration of the Blog Hop
please scroll down for new posts! ***


Welcome to the Valentine's Blog Hop!  If you just came here from Gemiels's Blog you are in the right place, if not, you you can start back at the Word Art Wednesday Blog so you don't miss any inspiration and the Blog Candy along the way.  We are joining together with the Word Art Wednesday gals to share our love for the Lord this Valentine's Weekend, and we hope to pass on that love to you all as well!!

 John 15:9 "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; now remain in My love."



In celebration of Valentine's Day, this hop is all about love - God's love! Besides all the LOVE-ly eye candy you will see on this hop in the way of cards/projects, we'd like to share the love by offering prizes to our hoppers as well, so be sure to leave comments on each stop along the way!! There is a "Grand Prize" of a SU! Stamp set called "Cute by the Inch" donated by the lovely Vicki of The Stamping Room (you can also visit her Stampin' Up page.)


In order to qualify for the Grand Prize Drawing, you simply need to leave a comment on each blog on the hop list. We will announce the Grand Prize winner on the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog the afternoon of Tuesday, February 14.

There are several other fun prizes to be won along the way on some of the Designers' blogs as you make your way through the Blog Hop.


For my card I have typed the scripture and printed it onto white card, cutting it out with the Spellbinders Postage Stamps Die, layering it onto the Fleur De Lis Pendant - all Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur


An image from the Layers of Color Royal Birds clear art stamp has been stamped over the sentiment in Peeled Paint Distressing Ink.  I have added some Nestabling, in the shape of the Labels One Dies - I love the effect it has here...and of course lots of pearls!!


The flower is from Wild Orchid and has a handmade Stick Pin added, along with the Leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage Die. 


Finishing off with some lace and an image from the Layers of Color Old World Flourish clear art stamp set has been embossed in white along the lowers edge.

You next stop on the Blog Hop is Tabitha
