Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - February

Is it really February already?  Wow, time is really flying by, it just seems like yesterday that I was frantically making Christmas cards!  This month we are focusing on Sale-a-Bration and Valentines.  I did three different items related to Valentine's Day (check out my blog in the coming days to see my Sale-a-Bration items!).

This trio makes a great gift with a candle, candy and a card- all ready for your Valentine!  We just so happen to be making these in my Valentine themed class on February 10th!

I love the color combination in this card!  I wanted our hop to include challenges just in case anyone was like me... had stamps with lots of dust on them that needed to be used, or colors that needed to befriend each other!  I pulled out my Build-a-Blossom set and punch for this card as well!  What do you think?
