7 Kids College Fund Valentine Blog Hop

( *** Please scroll down for my SugarPea Designs post *** )

Welcome to the 7 KIDS Valentine Hop!  Are you ready for hearts and flowers?  Oh, and don't forget love!  Thanks so much for joining us.   

I used the sweet Sympathy Bugs by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy Stamps.  I always thought "get well card" or something along those lines when I looked at this stamp but then a friend suggested these adorable little buggies would make the cutest Valentine card!  Of course I've used my copics and colored pencils to color the stamp and I added lots of sparkle too.  You always need sparkle on a Valentine's card, right?  

Supplies from the 7 Kids College Fund Store:
