Here is the Prize you can win ...

Let's give a BIG Welcome to our Guest Designer Angie
 Angie will be sharing her creations during the Month of February with all of us.

I’m so excited to be guest designing with Great Impressions this month! I’m a semi-retired music teacher living with my sweet husband and our senior English Springer Spaniel.  We also have 4 grown children and 5 beautiful grandchildren.  After I retired, I opened an Etsy store selling music related crafts.  I like many crafts but card making is the one I enjoy the most.  It gives me such joy to make and share handmade cards with family and friends.  Thanks so much to Great Impressions for letting me share my creations with you!

Now let's see what Angie created to inspire you!
Angie did an amazing job using our sketch, and her coloring and texture makes an awesome card. Make sure you head over to Angie's Blog to see how she split up the sentiment and put part of it on the inside of her card. Don't forget to leave her some love while you are there. 

Now it's time for a little Inspiration from our Designers ... 

featuring ... F572 Heart Puzzle
 and C461 My Heart Sentiment

featuring ... E824 Vintage Bubble Gum Machine
 and B148 Valentine Wishes Sentiment

featuring ... G339 Carousel Horse
 and B221 Heaven Sent Sentiment

Our Designer's would love to hear what you think of their projects.
Hop on over to their blogs to leave them a little love!

If you don't have a blog, you may post your entry in the gallery at Splitcoaststampers using the keyword GISMC in the Title, and then link it up below so we can find your project. This way we can also leave you a little love. If you don't have a Blog or Splitcoaststampers Gallery, please email Ruza at with the Subject line "GI Monthly Challenge Entry", and she will enter it for you.

As a bonus entry, if you use our stamps leave a comment on this post 
to let us know. You will have double the chance of winning 
this months Prize that is being offered.
