Taylored Expressions - January Blast From the Past

Hey everyone! I am so excited about today's blog hop! It is my 8th
Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past hop!! I went back in my blog archives and checked it out. I have an entry for every month, excluding December, when there was no hop, going back to May of last year. This month, the theme is Love.

I used Sankari's sketch and my new CreativiTEA set to make my card. The paper is from Basic Grey's Green at Heart.
Enjoy the hop everyone!!

My card is also for the following challenges:
Ooh La La Creations Challenge #71: Bling it On - bling across the bottom
Pile it On #3: Anything Goes
Basic Grey #35: Dots & Spots - my die-cut strip makes a line of dots and all dp is Basic Grey
Craft Your Days Away #11: Anything Goes
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #38: hearts - there is one on the end of the tea bag
Really Reasonable Ribbon #16: hearts & ribbon - tea bag has a heart
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #117: With Love
Stamp Something: Anything Goes
Some Odd Girl: Embossing - the die cuts are embossed and
both the sentiment and the tea pot are heat embossed
Stampin' B's #93 : Use a die cut - 2 Nestabilities circles and a Taylored Expressions small scalloped border die
Gingersnap Creations GC85: Chestnut Theme Challenge - Hot Beverages (tea)
