Ticket to Love Blog Hop! Day One

Hello and Welcome to the Valentine Themed Blog Hop. I'm so Excited to be part of this Hop with such talented Girls. If you just happened to come visit me and would like to hop along, you can go back to the Host of the Hop. That is Lissa Marie. If you just came from  Zenita ,then you are in the right place.

For my Project for Day One,I made a Valentine Card for my Mom. My Step Dad passed away a few years ago and I know Valentine's Day is a Sad day for her. So I hope that she will Love the Card that I made her.   This was my first attempt at making a Rose. I started with a 4x4 piece of Cardstock. Drew a Spiral and cut it out and rolled it up. Glued the end of the Spiral to hold it all together. I know It's not the best Rose,I tried to make a couple other ones. But I thought this was the best out of the three. I embossed the Card with the Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder. The Heart was cut from the Love Struck Cartridge. I sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist. For the leaves I used the Leaves Die from Stampin Up. Used the Oval and Scallop Oval Punches from Stampin Up. The Sentiment is from a Foam Set of Stamps that I received as a present. I used Red Satin Ribbon.

 I hope you enjoyed seeing my Card and hope that you make it back tomorrow to see  my other projects.      I do have a little Blog Candy that I will be giving away. I am giving away an Embossing Folder called Drifting Endless.  For the Chance to win become a follower of my Blog. If you already are a Follower. Please make sure you are. Also make sure you comment on both days of the Hop. I will post the Winner some time this coming Week. So make sure you come back to see if you won.

  1. what a beautiful card! Thank you for being in the hop with us! I am proud to have you here!

  2. That's a BEAUTIFUL card for your Mom! I love the white on red cut heart -- I have that cartridge and always forget to use it. I MUST, after seeing your card for inspiration.

    May I offer a tip on roses? You should "soften" the paper by rubbing the paper using a round-tipped object. This makes the paper curl and fall more naturally. I put my paper on a piece of foam (like a mouse pad, or a foam sheet .. I just bought a formal one for the first time but you don't need to) and rub it with a burnishing tool. I think you'll be much happier with the results, even though your bud is very pretty.
