Big Welcome Hugs to
Also joining us for our HOP is our February Guest Designer and my good friend, Lisa McKinney (if you scroll ALL the way down to the bottom of my blog, there is a photo of Lisa and I from when we met last year!)

We have the WHOLE team participating in our HOP and every one of us has something wonderful to share with you!  

AND - WE EACH HAVE A PRIZE FOR YOU!!!  Leave a comment on our blogs and each of us will draw a random commenter to receive a FREE copy of the image that we used in our project!

And now for my card!  I've decided to use this weeks challenge theme of Fancy Folds and I've used Lovin' Turtle - and he could be all yours if I select you out of my comments!

This is a really fun, fancy fold card that I found at Paola's Paper Haven.  It's called a Double Display card and I just love the way it frames the image!  You can find a template to make this card in her post HERE

Don't forget to leave me a comment!  I'll be selecting a random winner to receive Mr. Lovin' Turtle on February 8th at 8pm and I will announce the winner on February 9th at 9am.
