EAD Blog Hop - Oz Valentines

Welcome to another Monday EAD Blog Hop!  If you just got here from Jenn's blog - Double N Designs, you are in the right place!  (Otherwise, you can hop back to the beginning at the EAD Designs Blog!  So far this is my most favorite Valentine's project that I've worked on so far this year.  The other day my daughter and I were walking through Target and she saw the boxes of pre-made character Valentines and asked for some.  I immediately said, "We can just make our own when we get home."  At that moment I realized that Nicole will always want the cheap-y pre-made Valentines (like any normal kid) and I will want to make them.  I decided that a set of Valentines using the adorable Wizard of Oz Stickerz from EAD Designs would be a nice compromise.  :)  You also get another sneak peek at the newest Scrappy Moms "Love Notes" set.

Of course I had to use my red glitter embossing powder for the sentiments!

I think he is my favorite of the set - the sentiment is perfect for him!

The next stop on the blog hop is Amy T. from Tsuruta Designs!
