Hello and welcome to the next stop on the DeNami Valentine Blog Hop!

If you're arriving from Michele's fabulous blog, then you're right on track. If you stumbled over here or are lost and want to start at the beginning, you can start by heading over to the DeNami Blog!

If you'd like a chance to win one of THREE $20 gift certificates to the DeNami website, BE SURE to leave a comment on every blog! DeNami will be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant, and they'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop! You have until Monday, January 9th, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs to be eligible for a prize.

Ok, on to the Craftiness! I will make this short and sweet because I know you have a lot of blogs to visit!

I made a card set with a matching envelope using this tutorial by Amber. If you are not familiar with Amber's work, I highly encourage you to check out her blog. Two words to describe her: CREATIVE GENIUS
