DeNami Valentine Blog Hop


Good morning and WELCOME to the DeNami Valentine Blog Hop. We have an amazing group of talented Designers ready to share Valentine projects created using DeNami Designs Products!

If you arrived from Stacy's Blog, then you are in the right place. However, if you just arrived make sure that you hop on over to the DeNami Blog to start at the beginning. You really don't want to miss out on any of the FUN!


I have CAS card featuring the adorable Chickie in Balloon (E138), and the sentiment is from my stash. My trusty Copic Markers were used to color this adorable image. The background sky was provided by my husband. He brought home a whole package of Clouds Paper by Geographics that he found laying around his office, and he thought of me and my card making. Love my man!!!

My design is based on the current Seize the Sketch Challenge #11, shown below.

Secondly, your coloring is so rich and deep that it looks like you cut the image out from a glossy magazine. Awesome card Ruza:)
