How fun! Have you enjoyed the blog hop so far? You've just come from Tammy Fite's blog. Doesn't she do great work? I am always inspired by her creativity!
I love the new Love Impressions Designer Paper and the Gimmer Paper. This card uses four of the designs from this paper package plus the Red Glimmer Paper. After I assembled the squares and ran it through the big shot with the top note die, I ran it through the big shot one more time with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I like the extra dimension it gives the card.

My second project is a pinwheel card. It's been in the mid-70s in my town for several days (although we are expecting a cold front later this week), and it just seemed like a time for bright colors. I hope you like it.

I've got one more project to share. My downline, Renee Lamb, shared this with me. Thanks so much, Renee! What a cute project for Valentine's Day. And, it can easily be adapted for any other holiday or special occasion. This cute top note holder is really easy to make, and the belly band holds it all together. There are three Hershey nuggets on the inside – just enough to satisfy that chocoholic's craving! Some of my co-workers will be surprised to find one of these cute projects on their desk for Valentine's Day!

Here's a close up of the belly band. Just a narrow piece of cardstock wrapped around the Top Note Nugget Holder.
Here's a picture of the inside. Take a 1" wide strip of the designer paper and wrap around the nugget. Then I ran a couple of strips of adhesive on the inside and stuck the nuggets down so they would stay in place. This cute little project will be one the ladies in hostess clubs will be making in February.
