Taylor had this fabby idea to post Valentine's cards today and have a little blog hop. Little, HA! It's gotten to be a big, huge, awesome blog hop of 40+ designers, and a whole mess of sponsors!! There will be 21 prizes available for random commenters along the hop, so make sure and leave a bunch of love all over the place! And visit Taylor's blog for ALL the details!!
Now how about my card??
This is my second card for this week's Hambo Hoedown Challenge #2 - I had to make another so I could use this super duper cute Eye Monster image from the Hambo Stamps digi store! I love him so, he just cracks me up! All those silly eyeballs! I made them even sillier by popping them up...
I just knew I had to add some red Stickles to the heart that the monster is holding (it is required by Libby Law!), but I wanted all the little red heart brads to coordinate with the blinginess, so I dabbed a bit of Stickles on each of them as well.
(All you digi lovers out there, have you checked out the Hambo Hoedown yet?? You get a FREE DIGI when you participate!! How cool is that???!!)
Now back to the hop info for a sec - if you get lost along the way, visit Taylor because she has the entire list of hoppers there on her blog. But hopefully you aren't lost yet, as I'm just stop #2 along the way (and that would mean I messed up already and that would be very, very sad!).
To continue along, please head on over to visit the fabulous Cyndi Bundy!!
And here's a look at the wonderful companies offering prizes for this hop! Remember to leave those comments!! And why don't you visit these links, too, and check out what they have to offer? I have to admit, some are brand new to me and I am racking up quite a huge wishlist!!

Now before I go, I have to show you the Valentines that Carter made for his preschool teachers - I think they turned out so cute! I saw the idea at Let's Explore (I subscribe to their blog via email for fun ideas of things to do with my kids!). So I gathered the heart-shaped doilies, die cut the red hearts and cut out the fairy wings, then let Carter assemble them and draw the head & limbs. My favorite part - all those fingers! Hee hee, too fun!
Thanks for stopping (& hopping!) by! Happy Valentine's Day!! xoxo
