Sharing the Love . . .the CPS Blog Hop!

Happy Valentines' Day, friends!!!
I hope you're up to something wonderful today . . .like blog hopping!!! The anniversary celebration at Card Positioning Systems has been SUCH fun. Have you enjoyed the extra sponsors, giveaways, and inspiration the past few weeks!? If you haven't started at the begining of the hop, at the CPS website. . .go there first, and hop your way through a bunch of the CPS designers, each with a fabulous giveaway to share!
Before I tell you about the goodies I have, let me tell you about my card! I used some more of the SUPER cute Starving Artistamps Valentine stamps, paper from We R Memory Keepers, and some Papertrey cardstock.
But now, onto what you'd REALLY like to hear about!! I want to SHARE some Valentines/CPS Anniversary love with you today . . .

*a copy of the Card Maker's Sketchbook. It has sketches by the darling and talented Tami Mayberry, and card samples from a lot of the CPS designers.
*some super cute Valentines stamps from Starving Artistamps.
*the new March issue of CardMaker magazine (if you win, and you already have this mag, let me know - i have a couple others i could trade it for!!!)
*anddd, any other treasures I can fit in the envelope!!!

On Tuesday morning, I'll draw one winner from the comments here on this post. (Maybe two, if I find some more goodies to share!) If you'd like, I would love to know who your favorite CPS sponsor company has been. Any new company you weren't familiar with, or maybe an old favorite of yours!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you'll come back again!
She is one seriously talented chica, and I am ALWAYS inspired by her work!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
XOXO

What cute cards.
Happy V-Day to you.

Kathy said...

I am fairly new to cards and stamping especially. I think the Starving Artistamps are the cutest. I am one that desperately needs the sketchbook the most. I am used to layouts and doing cards being smaller is so intimidating to me. I am determined to use leftovers from each layout I do to make a card.

Woogy said...

I love that owl!
