Challenge deadline: Thursday, Feb 19.Prize:  $40 gift voucher to the Verve online store 

It's probably no secret that I'm a big fan of hearts in my stamp designs.  My Dad is a Valentine's baby and my hubby's birthday is Feb. 15, so I'm always inspired to design with hearts!  That means there's lots of past inspiration in our design team gallery for this theme, as well.  Below are a few favorites that captured my eye as I perused the gallery.  By the way, all of our in-stock love themed products are 30% off through February 14, so there's still time to grab a little Valentine for yourself!

So now, let's get to the new inspiration!  Check out the blogs listed below and leave a little shout out in the comments section at each stop for a chance to win our comment prize of a $40 gift voucher to the Verve store!  Comment deadline is Thursday, February 12.


The hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry.
