"Love is in the Air!" Blog Hop-PPPR

Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons "Love is in the Air" Blog Hop.. 
You should of arrived here from MELISSA'S blog, but if you just stopped by and want to join the hop, please click HERE and you'll get redirected to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon's blog..

For today's hop, us girls were asked to create a project with the theme LOVE and using the cutting files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon store.  I decided to go with a card.. Our wedding anniversary is on Valentines day and I thought to make my hubby a card.. Its for a guy, so had to stick with a semi masculine look.

I am totally in love with how cute this card turned out:

how about a few close ups:

I love using the SIL software.  One of my favorite options is the "print only" feature.  I was able to print the sentiment right onto the card base.. Great when you don't have that sentiment you need :)

for the tree of hearts, I used the tree frame from the "Autumn Tree cutting file!" and added the hearts which are from the title phrase on the "Hot Cocoa cutting file!".. I just re-sized them my liking..

and how cute is this little beaver?.. He's on the "Forest Critters cutting file!"  I cut him in layers and added some chalk to the edges..  
I used the cup filler from the "Hot Cocoa" cutting file for the pond and then added a tiny heart on a string to the tip of the stick the beaver is holding onto..

The scalloped card base is from the "Scalloped Circle!" cutting file.. I used two of them, flipping one above the other and welding together..

and now for the rules of the HOP and LOVE challenge:
