TPS blog hop

Hi there {PINK} Fans,

Well we are having a Valentine Blog Hop with the month of {LOVE} just around the corner. We have 3 YES 3 prizes to be won and there are hidden prizes all through the hop. Now here are some of the details you wont want to miss...

Hop starts : Friday 28th January 2011

Hop ends : Sunday 30th January 2011

Winner Announced : Monday 31st January 2011

And now onto the ....Prizes...
1st - Sentiment set with die with choice of 1 Cherrie and 1 Lolita/Lad.
2nd - 2 Cherries and 2 Lads/Lolitas
3rd - 1 Cherrie and 1 Lolita/Lad

If you have arrived here from the lovely Emma then you are heading in the right direction, if not then never fear just head on over to HERE... and get started :)


For my card today I have used Cherrie with heart, what a little cutie, and I have paired up the frame and die from out Christmas sentiment set with the 'I adore you' from out Valentines sentiment set. The papers are 7 gypsies (thank you Kristy, they are gorgeous) I have cut the circles out with my grand nesties and inked and glittered my edges. The pearl flourish is also from TPS and the ribbon and lace is from my stash. The heart and love charm are actually left over from my wedding invitations, lol, I love putting them on cards, makes me a bit nostalgic :) The punched butterflies are actually from the reverse side of the paper (I just love that about double sided paper!) I think that's just about everything, Cherrie is coloured with copics, and for once I am happy with how her hair has turned out (I must confess, as adorable as she is, and I really do love these little Cherries, I have a terrible time colouring them, I am just never completely happy. I think I am used to colouring smaller images (maggies and lolitas mostly) and when I am faced with an image with such a large amount of face and hair I mess it up, lol!) Anyways, this Cherrie was not the usual total disaster (I cannot tell you how many have ended up in the bin) like I said, I am actually happy with this one. Anyways, enough waffles...
Your next stop on out hippity hop is the amazingly talented Jane!! Have fun and Think {PINK}
