Chickie's Valentine

Welcome to another fabulous blog hop from The Stamping Bazaar featuring three new designs by Marina Neira!! This week we'll be featuring Valentine cutsies which will be released this Saturday, January 22!

For this first day, I made this card using Chickie's Valentine and added simple embellishments to complement the cute Valentine design! I tried using Liquid Pearls for the heart and wings similar to the lasercut embellishments before, but I don't like the solid effect. I think embossing or glitter will be better and will have to try that out nextime.

There will be lots of prizes given away each day for commenters... so make sure to leave everyone luvs along the way! Finally, at the end of the week one lucky winner will be chosen to win the entire set of three (3) digis!!

Here's the complete blog hop list:

Did you know? Toss bombing is a method of bombing where the attacking aircraft pulls upwards when releasing its bomb load, giving the bomb additional time of flight by starting its ballistic path with an upward vector. The purpose of toss bombing is to compensate for the gravity drop of the missile in flight. A more dynamic variant of toss bombing, called over-the-shoulder bombing, or the LABS (Low Altitude Bombing System) maneuver (known to pilots as the "idiot's loop"), is a particular kind of loft bombing where the bomb is released past the vertical so it is tossed back towards the target. the maneuver had allowed the bomber to change direction and distance itself from the target.
