Blog Candy and UStamp Swap Cards

My mailbox was bursting with hearts yesterday as I received a wonderful stack of swap cards from fellow UStamp members from around the US. Some I know who created them, a few were unsigned.

Just look at this cute little owl! It has a peek-a-boo window done with the Movers and Shapers die and an edge done with the pinking heart punch.

This card has lots texture! Clean and classy.

Heather Dean created this next card. It has so many luscious layers and the paper pieced birds are cute, cute, cute! (I love the chocolate chip one with flowers!)

This red and vanilla card is very rich looking with lots of embossing.

Mary Fife created this adorable gate fold card. Wonderfully colored and the little letters in the bears paws are hand-cut.

Next is a pretty pink card using the Scalloped envelope die. The pink designer paper is stunning and embossed heart just sets everything off.

Natalie Gramley designed this adorable bear card. He is holding a little stamped gift bag with punched heart. Fun!

Next up is a wonderful card by Sue Blankenship. We have had fun getting to know each other on live chats. Lots of texture offset with a delicate strip of punched edging make this a gorgeous card.

This next card is a knock-out in real life. There are dry embossed lines on either side of the hearts and white gel pens surround each heart.

Judy Holland created this beauty. The background papers are done on MDS! Lots of layers and heat embossing. Wow!

Now for the blog candy. Actually I can't tell you what is yet! It is a surprise. How about that? To be entered in the random drawing just leave a comment on any of the posts this week (including yesterday's "kitty post"). For every comment I will "throw your name in the hat". On Feb 14th, I will announce a fun tidbit of news and the winner of the blog candy. So check back for blog updates throughout the week!
