Paperplay - Stamp it Out!

Supplies: Hero Arts Digital Kit - Vintage Couple, Papermania Blue and 
Green Rose pp (double sided), Bazzill kraft cardstock, White cardstock base, 
Basic Grey Rub On Sentiment, machine stitching with blue thread, American Crafts 
Aqua Essentials Ribbon, BG Jovial button and pop dots.

This week's challenge on Paperplay is "Stamp it Out!" - you can use digital or rubba' or clear or cling stamps - whatever you want once you dig out those stamps and get stamping!!!.

The sentiment is from this kit here - it is by BasicGrey and it is one of the left over sentiments from the Bittersweet Greeting Card Kit.  Seems like a great match given Hero Arts have recently teamed up with BG - check out the updates on the Hero Arts blog.

I am entering this card into this month's Challenge on Hero Arts - Love and Friendship.

Did you see that one of our past Paperplay Design Team Members has become a Hero Arts Hostess? - check out the news hereHUGE congrats to Heather (I think she is the first Irish hosti with Hero Arts) - woohooo!.

Happy St Blaise's Day - Very few facts are known about Saint Blaise. We believe he was a bishop of Sebastea in Armenia who was martyred under the reign of Licinius in the early fourth century.  St. Blaise is the patron saint of wild animals because of his care for them and of those with throat maladies.

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Love is in the Air
Creative Craft World - Love Card Challenge
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Love is in the Air
Paper Sundaes - Valentine's
Tuesday Throwdown - Stitching
Mami Doodles - magic of love

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you get inky this week and play along with Paperplay.
