It might be cold & wet where you are, but February is actually a wonderful month!
Reasons to love February:
Valentine’s Day! Love.
Super Bowl Sunday!
Whale season. Maui, I know. Come visit!
Chocolates. You just might get some. You really should give some.
The start of Lent. Strive to be better, more giving, less complaining.
Back to my calendar. This pretty heart is from Sure Do Love You, in the Occasions Catalog, & it just happens to have a set of framelits that bundle with it!
See the way the sentiment is darker on the outside? That’s called the “kissing technique”. Very appropriate for February, don’t you think?! It’s very simple to do. Just stamp the image in Melon Mambo then roll the edge of the stamp in a darker color (I used Berry Burst).
Tell me what you LOVE about February!! Come on! I know you can find something…
Time to check out Crystal & Anne’s calendars for February. Here’s a photo of the three of us, surrounding some special guests:

I’m excited to be a part of Kylie’s International Blog Highlight today, where you’ll be seeing lots of favorites from the Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalogs! Here’s the Designer Series Paper I can’t get enough of…Painted With Love. It’s just gorgeous! Shiny with beautiful textures throughout!
I’ve decided to try a new Fun Fold, called a Wiper Card. It’s actually pretty simple- there’s just a flap inside that pops up when the card is opened. Cute! The first time I saw this card was when I swapped at On Stage in Salt Lake City with Audra Monk, who’s on my Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hoppin’ Team. Thanks Audra!
I used Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the square. Did you notice the pretty vellum leaves? That’s from Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit. All products listed at the bottom of this post, and it’s a great time to shop! Sale-a-Bration Time! That means you get a FREE item for every $50 you spend!
I would love if you could take the time to vote for my card at Kylie Bertucci’s host page for this blog highlight. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project (#6)!

I liked this card, mainly because of the Washi Tape! And just the whole layout. Here’s what I came up with:
