The Stamp Review Crew: Hearts A Flutter

Welcome to this weeks Stamp Review Crew blog hop! This week we are showcasing the Hearts A Flutter Stamp Set. We are all so excited to share our ideas with you.  You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Debra Burgin , on the Stamp Review Crew Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full  lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

I hope everyone affected by the winter storm today is safe & warm. So far, here in Southern Illinois we have around 12"-14", but it's hard to determine with the snow drifts. We have a couple snow drifts in our backyard 3' to 4' deep. We haven't received this much snow, that I can remember,  since 1982! It's a good time to stay inside and do some stamping.

I made two cards; a CAS (clean and simple card) and a Foo-Foo- card:
