Top Dog Dies Blog Hop: you're my cup of coffee

Click HERE for my Artful Delight post.


Hello and Welcome to the

♥♥Valentines Day Blog Hop♥♥


You should have arrived here from the Top Dog Dies blog!  Remember, the fun starts there!

I put together a 4x4 Valentine's Day Card:


I used the Top Dog Dies Heart Doily.  There's the perfect amount of space to stamp that coffee cup from the Hero Arts Need Caffeine set!

I'm a huge fan of the chalkboard technique and really love the look on red cardstock too!

Do you see how I randomly popped out some of the details on the doily?  It adds an unexpected interest to the overall card design.  

I finished off the card with wrapping some May Arts Jute around the base, gives it a smidge of rustic charm, eh?

That's it for me...now hippety hop over to Amy's (aka Aimes) blog!
  

You'll want to hop through, you'll be thoroughly inspired!
