PumpkinSpice February Blog Hop & Challenge #5

Hello Everyone,

Happy February!  Oh my, was January a long month for you?  It certainly was for me! 
So happy to see February and of course all the hearts and flowers and candy.... It's just so much fun to see the little one's exchange Valentine's.  I think that is one of my favorite classroom 'party' times.
Pumpkin only has 10 or so to exchange with this year, not nearly enough in my opinion, so they are getting a multitude of cards.  LOL You will see them below.
First, today is the February Hop with all the AMAZING ShopPumpkinSpice Designers.  Can I ohh and ahh for a minute... {big sigh..}  Everytime I hop over the the PumpkinSpice Blog and see one of these ladies' creations... I am always so impressed.  They are all just so creative and detailed... LOVE IT!!! 
If you have landed here by chance, you will definately want to begin with Tanya!

Here is the complete line up:

Next, we have our Challenge for today!
Are you Ready??

Today's Challenge: Hearts! How easy is that?  Make something with Hearts! Be creative and have fun!

Here is my Project for the Challenge:

Are these adorable or WHAT!?!  I took the time to watch a YouTube video (several out there) on how to use the Print and Cut feature on the Cameo... Oh MY!!!  I am hooked.  I don't know if my poor Cricut will be used again.  I used the Classic White Bazzill 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock (love this stuff - works for EVERYTHING), printed in my low-tech printer, took it to the Cameo and presto... done.  So easy it is sad it took me so long to do it! 

Link your project Above.

The winner will be announced Next Saturday along with our new Challenge.
