Lil Love Bug

1 CCD-Blog Hop Banner
Today is the official RELEASE DAY for all of our new JANUARY products!! As you have seen from our Preview Days, all of these items are perfect for Valentine's Day and all those lovey dovey cards! You can view the entire release HERE!
As we mentioned all our stamps going forward will be CLEAR! We have 8 adorable clear stamps, 1 Smoochie Sentiments Clear Stamps, Circle Layering Dies, Make A Card #12 Die, Smoochie Enamel Dots, and 1 new Smoochie 6x6 Paper Pad.

It's a wonderful release isn't it!?  There are so many gorgeous goodies to play with but I decided to use Lil Love Bug.  I didn't want to make a card for Valentines Day, I just wanted to make a cute card and I left it without a sentiment so that I could use it for just about any occasion.  I also used some darker colours on her so that she wouldn't be TOO cute for a teenager.  I loved colouring her :)

I decided to use the "X's" from the new Die as more of a cross-stitch in the corners of the card rather than as a kiss.  And isn't the heart frame gorgeous!?
