Welcome to the Quietfire Design's 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!
This week we're celebrating the release of the newest dies, stencils and stamps from Quietfire Design by sharing our best projects! 
https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Tflzdh1-_WM/VLmuwiNhFVI/AAAAAAAAGco/JWGuJES8RtI/s1600/QueenofHearts_bloghop_logo.jpg

Above is my contribution to this blog hop using The newest die set from A Way With Words from  Elizabeth Craft Designs "Wishing You" and a couple from the previous release "Happy Birthday" 2 pce set and "Calligraphic Elements 2 - Flourished Heart" - All also available on Quietfire Design HERE, HERE and HERE

Now Suzanne has also started a stencil line and I'm using the "Flourished Frame" loving it. You can get them at Elizabeth Craft Designs or HERE on Quietfire Design.

And what would a card be if it didn't have some calligraphic stamped quote from Suzanne - I'm using one of the just released ones "Always Believe..." and an oldie but goodie design element stamp "Butterflies/Dragonflies" 7 pce set
 

Here is our Blog Hop Schedule with the dates each designer will be posting (Click on each person's name to go to their blog):
Sun Feb 12 - Suzanne
Mon Feb 13 - Wanda and Connie
Tues Feb 14 - Robyn and Teresa
Wed Feb 15 - Kathy Jo and Diana
Thurs Feb 16 Yvonne and ME...
Fri Feb 17 Selma

What would a celebration be without a giveaway!? Suzanne is giving away stamps, dies or stencils to random winners on each blog. 
Make sure you leave a comment below before midnight Sunday February 19, 2017. A winner will be randomly chosen from my list of comments and the winner's name will be posted on Quietfire Creations shortly afterwards.
