Well, It has been a while since I have posted again. After some encouragement today from my Upline, Shana Gaff, I thought I would set aside some time to blog. I saw a couple of great challenges that I thought I would enter; one was the Friday Mashup #142 and the other was Freshly Made Sketches #118.
For the Friday Mashup we were to use twine and /or make a Birthday Card. Holly mentioned that this is her birthday month and it is mine too! I thought it would be fun to make my own birthday card! I loved the sketch from Jen M and Freshly Made Sketches and thought it would be perfect!
It has been a while since I have taken the time to make a card. I thought I would try to use some supplies that I hadn't used yet. I don't usually use hearts on cards but today I went on a heart overload. I used the scalloped heart from the Heart a Flutter Framelits with one of the hearts from the Heart Collection to make the Basic Gray Heart. I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp as a little color for the background but still leaving a little white space drawing my eye to the hearts.
I love to add the simple little details to make this card special and unique. I hope you have enjoyed my little journey back into stamping and I am hoping to not be away so long the next time.
Thanks for stopping!!
