Love messages -- All Month long!

February is the Month of L♥VE!
I hope you are having a month full of sweetness, no matter whether you have a love interest, a partner, a significant other, or not ... get in on the LOVE. May your ♥ be full!
Thursday is my day to take over the Lovebug Creations Creative Team blog, and this week, we're previewing some of the new delicious colors available in Rumple Ribbons beginning February 24th in the Lovebug Creations Shop.

Here is a charming card that would be appropriate for anyone, from your Mom to your bestie, or a special friend:

This card features the new Icy Blue Rumple Ribbon on the lower edge of the card and tied into a bow onto a colonial white card by Close To My Heart. The sentiment, flowers and bird chipboard elements are called My Reflections Chantilly Complements by CTMH (#X7163C), and are shown in the Spring-Summer Idea Book.  They have been applied using foam dots in a variety of thicknesses. The bottom edge of the card has been punched using a Martha Stewart lace punch.

Now remember, if you're looking to stock up on the wonderful new colors of Rumple Ribbon, they're going to be available beginning on February 24. You'll get to see all of the new colors and sets this weekend (Feb 23 - 24) when the terrific gals of the Lovebug Creations Creative Team hop together to celebrate March Holidays, featuring all of the new colors of the Lovebug rainbow.
