Love & Valentines EAD Designs Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome!  Today is special.  :-)  There's a group of us that are EAD Designs fans so we decided to inspire each other to use our goodies!  For those of you that don't remember, EAD Designs created vinyl stickers and rub-ons.  Awesome products but the company closed up shop over a year ago.

What all of our projects will have in common is that we are all using EAD Goodies and our challenge is:

Love & Valentines

Here's how it inspired me:


I built my card around the hot pink EAD sentiment, which I placed on a strip of vellum. A piece of retired Stampin' Up! patterned paper gave me my color scheme.  


There is blog candy hidden along the way!  The more you leave comments on the blogs that are participating, the more chances you have to win!



Commenting open until Saturday, February 8th at 11:59 pm pacific

winners posted on Amy's blog on Monday, February 10th



Have fun hoppin'!



Huge thanks to Amy for inviting me to participate in this hop, and sending me some EAD goodies to play with.  :)

ETA:  I'm entering this in Simon Says Stamp's 'Love Notes' challenge, and their 'Twine or String' challenge.

Thanks for your visit today.  Hope you win some blog candy!
