Welcome to the Stampin' Friends January Blog Hop!  This month's theme is LOVE. 
If you're following along the hop you arrived from Kim Smith's blog.
This month's card is for my SWEETIE!  Paul and I have been married over 40 years - and I swear I love him more than ever.  We have got a LOT going in our lives - but he is always there for me  - and truly my LOVE!  The Sealed with Love Bundle from the SU! Occasions catalog fit the bill for me.  I used the traditional Whisper White and Real Red - but added in some non-traditional Tip Top Taupe and Pool Party - and I love how they all came together to make this beauty. 
The Sending Love DSP was perfect for the little envelopes spilling out their Hearts of Love!  Inside my wish and a little kiss!  I love how you can put more than one stamp on the clear block and stamp it just once. 
My second project is this adorable little banner.  It only took 2 - 6x6" pieces of DSP, a few staples and a little ribbon to put this together.
Here you can see a close up and the pretty papers used.  It's going to be used on my seasonal wreath - and isn't up yet, because I may (or may not have) taken down my Christmas portion of the wreath - YET!  Please don't judge! lol
However - that doesn't take away from how adorable this is!  Hope you liked it too!  
PS - here it is added to my wreath - 
Please leave a comment - one lucky commenter - just might win some of that pretty DSP!!  So onto more great ideas - don't forget to click the NEXT button below to continue the hop with Andrea Tracy-Tucker's post.  So let's jump right in -
