Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

With February just around the corner, it's time to start making Valentines for our friends and loved ones. Papertrey Ink inspired me with their awesome challenge here. Don't these images just put you in the "lovey dovey" spirit?

January-2015-PTI-Blog-Hop

My favorite is the multi-colored hearts that look similar to the bokeh technique. Without further ado, here is my creation made especially for my dear husband. He is so supportive of my crafting time I just know he'll appreciate my effort.

Oh, I love this Kathy! I recently watched several videos on reproducing the bokeh technique in stamping - but have not mastered this as well as you did with these ink choices. Just fabulous! Isn't it great to have a husband who is so supportive of this hobby!
