Michelle Perkett Studio Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! Phew! The storm got the better of us for a while, but here I am - finally! Thanks for stopping in, and for hopping along with us. If you've come from the lovely Ileana's blog, you're right on track!

The Michelle Perkett Studio Blog Hop is all about love, and we're here to share a love letter with you. I've written mine to Grandma.

[I removed the letter]

Here's my card, which gets dropped in the mail to Grandma this week. This is my first easel card, and I love it! I hope you do, too.

 


Challenges:
Double Dutch - Be My Valentine
Penny's Challenges - Valentine/Love
The Pink Elephant #53 - Mushy Gushy Valentine

Cheers,
Susan

What a beauty, Susan. I love all the lace and the pinks and reds. Great image and I LOVE the font on the sentiment stamp. I'm sure your grandma will treasure this. It's so perfect that it's an easel card. It will sit up nicely so she can enjoy it. So great to have you joining in the fun with us at the Creative Card Crew.
