(yes, Suzanne doubled the value from the original announcement!)  Each Designer will randomly choose a winner from the comments on their own Blog Hop post, 
so make sure you’ve commented on all the blogs by midnight 
Thursday, February 14th.  
Tell your friends!

All winners will be posted on the
Quietfire Creations Blog on Sunday February 17th.

 I'm using one of my newest dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs (Cupcake with cherry on top), used my electronic cutter for the Eiffel Tower. I'm using several stamps from various sets from Quietfire Design

Anyway, to see more details and descriptions and other views, just click on card image and enjoy.

And it fits for these challenges:  
NOTE: for "love" who wouldn't love having their BD in Paris, the city of Love and being the queen of hearts and all that implies and of course eating scrumptious cupcakes... And for "vintage" the "let them eat cupcakes" from Marie Antoinette, that's pretty vintage in my book...

I visited Yogi's blog, but couldn't find a spot where it says to post a comment. She has created some truly unique cards with your stamps as well as textures and layers :) Don't know if this will count for me being in the draw, but let her know I enjoyed her work!

I drop a leave a response whenever I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to valuable to
contribute to the conversation. Usually it
is a result of the fire communicated in the article I browsed.
And after this post "Quietfire - Queen of Hearts - Blog Hop".
I was actually moved enough to drop a thought :-P I do
have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks look like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I'd like to follow you.
Could you list the complete urls of your communal sites like
your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Jane said...

Well Yogi, you never cease to amaze me with your creativity. Ohhhhh I could move next door....
It is always a pleasure to visit your blog and your use of Suzanne's stamps really sets them off.
Thank you so much as you share so much of what it is you do.
Cheers,
Jane
