PWCO February Release Blog Hop!

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my card for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps February Release Preview. Thanks!

Welcome to the PWCO February Release Blog Hop! If you came from Kerri's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Peggy's blog. There are prizes up for grabs, so don't forget to leave comments along the way! Here are my cards featuring the newly released stamps:

This month we are releasing a new stamp collection called " A Day in the Life of Abigail C."

The stamp that I used for my first card is He loves me?. Isn't Abigail so cute? =)

The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny Press' Love Bandit collection. I used the Heart Lace Border die for WOJ on the pink floral paper. The sentiment is from the Always Here set by Skipping Stones Design.

I used the sweet Abby Easter for my second card.

Since I don't really send out Easter cards, I replaced all the eggs in this image with hearts. That way you can use this image any time of the year for friendship cards! I added Glossy Accents to the large heart. The little hearts in the basket are leftovers from die cutting. I piled them on with some rolled up Glue Dots.

The patterned paper is the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park. Super yummy paper for springy and/or summery projects! The sentiment is from the Very Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all I have. It's time to send you to Danielle's blog. Here is the hopping list:

We are giving away 6 stamps (one of each style) to 6 random commenters, so don't forget to leave a comment at each blog! Good luck and have fun hopping! =)
