Jaded Blossom Monthly Challenge and SUPER EXCITING ANNOUNCMENT!!!

Happy Sunday! :0) I am so over the moon excited to share an announcement with you!! If you know me you know I am not a great secret keeper--I like to give presents early because I can't keep it to myself what I bought!! WELL I have been sitting on a secret for a week!!!! (That is a super long time for me!) And I FINALLY get to share the news!
Candace and Michelle from Jaded Blossom asked ME to be a their very first guest designer!!!!
Eeeeeeek! Can you believe it!? I am so excited to share with you the amazing stamps that these talented ladies have created and get to work with such a GREAT group of crafty Jaded Blosson girls!! This means I will be participating in my VERY FIRST Blog Hop! Next Friday Jaded Blossom is having a stamp release Blog Hop!!
Make sure you hop through this super talented line-up of Jaded Blossom's Design team to see all the new release stamps! AND because I am SUPER EXCITED to be a guest designer this month I am going to offer some SUPER AWESOME Blog candy!!!!!!! Oh-I forgot to mention that my blog candy is in ADDITION to the SUPER AWESOME Blog candy that Jaded Blossom is offering!!!! I'm telling you don't want to miss this!! ALL NEW SUPER CUTE stamps, a line-up of SUPER creative designers AND BLOG CANDY!!! Really!?! Does it get any better? :0)

Actually IT DOES get better!! Today is the first monthly challenge over at Jaded Blossom!

This month is a valentine challenge and I LOVE LOVE LOVE to make valentines!! I have a valentine to share with you that I made with my sweetie in mind! His favorite colors are black, grey and red--so I made my valentine with the same colors! He will just love ANOTHER card from me! HAHA! Here is my valentine!!

I used a stamp from Jaded Blossom's Valentine Treats! I love this set because there are so many ways to use these stamps. The heart is punched from Creative Memories heart punch at 1 1/2". I used DCWV Glitter Stack paper for the pattern paper background, a plain piece of black cardstock and the head phones are cut from the Cricut cartridge 'Wrap It Up'. I finished it with a Holiday Inspirations ribbon from Joann Fabrics.

Don't forget to visit Jaded Blossom and share your project!

PHEW---that was a lot to get hit with in one post! Let's have a re-cap:
My FIRST EVER Design Team Guest Designer Spot!
My FIRT EVER Blog Hop! (with Super good blog candy!)
