Blog Candy and Cupid's Love


 Hello Friends!

I am so excited and lovin' the new IO CHA release that I am going to be posting quick and easy cards to create featuring new valentine / wedding dies and images. 

 I would like to thank my 972 followers and share some IO shopping. Of course new followers are always welcome too! Just leave me a comment on any post starting with my second post on Jan 10th through Wednesday January 15th and tell me how you follow me.  I will use the Random Generator to choose a winner from all of comments and announce the winner on Thursday Jan 15th 2014.  The prize will be any 5 items of your choice from all of the Impression Obsession CHA 2014 New Release.

Here is a very sparkly Valentine using new Impression Obsession Dies.  The Love You Heart DIE131-K was cut twice once in silver sparkle and once in red sparkle and just nestled back together.  I think this new Cupids DIE125-M is just the sweetest evah!  All of the cardstock edges have been sponged with Memento Love Letter.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
