Valentine's Day Cards for Cancer Patients Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to day 1 of the Valentine's Day Cards for Cancer Patients Blog Hop hosted by Mindy at and if you have just stumbled across the hop please hop over to  Mindy's blog to hop from the beginning. If you came from Paula's Blog you are in the right place. 

This blog hop is to make and send Valentine's Day cards to Children who are at St. Jude's Children's Hospital. 

For my Card today I used the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge to cut the Love Bug. I used My Mind's Eye paper for the back round and for the wings of my Love Bug. My card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch white card stock. My first layer is black card stock cut at 4 x 5 1/4 inches. The My Mind's Eye paper 3 3/4 x 5 inches. I used my EK Sucess Scallop punch and another piece of My Mind's Eye paper to make that layer 3 3/4 x 5 again. 

I used sticky back googly eyes. 

I used Red Stickles on the heart and used my white Gel pen to outline the heart. I also used my White Gel pen to do Stitching around the black layer. 

The Stamps on the front and inside are Cloud 9 St. Valentine's Day Stamps, I used Blazin Red StazOn ink on the inside and White Embossing Powder on the outside. I used a Black Gel Pen to do the stitching on the inside.

I have some blog Candy, to be eligible for it you must leave me a comment.
