Take just a moment, close your eyes and open your heart…think about those you love most…then think about the last time you told them that you love them…the last time you put into words just how much they mean to you.  I challenge you to create a card that is as beautiful inside as it is out.  Your project should incorporate some sort of hearts in the cover design to hint at what's inside.  The interior should be filled with your own heartfelt words to one of the first people you thought of when you began reading this paragraph.  Tell someone how much you love them and remind them why.  After you photograph your card or the blog hop, be sure to address the envelope and mail it to that special someone!   

   Schedule-of-Events

 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am EST and 11:30pm EST on January 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge".

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

Mandy-LaCroix

Mandy LaCroix stamped this gorgeous hear using floral stamps in shades of pink.  The strips of patterned paper along the side help to add balance in a stylish way.  Such a great design!

Susan-P

Susan P. created this tri-fold card with an obvious heart theme.  You just have to click through to her blog to see the interior of this gorgeous card!

The-Silk-Purse

Sharon from The Silk Purse made a card for a special friend using a confetti of different heart images in pinks and golds. The vellum tag really makes it by adding emphasis to the sentiment but not taking away from the hearts found underneath.

Congrats to all of the winners!  Please send a note off to customer service letting them know the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to!  And a big thank you to everyone who played along!
