Hi friends! Wow...it's been an entire week since I've posted anything! I've been taking kind of a break and spending some more time with family. I've stepped down from half of my design teams as I just didn't have enough time between working 10 hours per day and crafting for so many teams to spend enough family time. So I'm taking a break for a while. They've all been so fabulous and understanding of the situation, and I love them all dearly! With that being said, it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this weeks challenge is Heart to Heart and we're sponsored by the fabulous Katharina over at Whiff of Joy!!
For my card today, I used an adorable Magnolia stamp and I don't even know what her name is. She hasn't been released yet, but I thought she was so cute and I love her sitting on the window sill of #532 Romantic Window from the You Are So Special collection at Magnolia-licious. Oh my gosh, this window is a "must have"!!!!! The stamps are colored with Copic Sketch markers. Papers are from Nitwit Collections and cardstock is Bazzill. The ribbon is May Arts silk ribbon from Stamp and Create, and the flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts. Punches used are Martha Stewart lacy heart border punch and branch punch, and then I also used heart and scalloped heart Nesties. Added some machine stitching along with some faux stitching and I called this one finished.
One of my New Years Resolutions was to finish the inside of my cards before I put it down and moved on to the next project. Believe it or not, I have been doing it and it's February already! I'm so proud of myself! LOL! I was tired of having about 100 cards sitting here without the inside of them finished. And I would never send out a card that wasn't finished on the inside. So needless to say, I've even sent out more cards already this year too! How bout that??!!! Can you see this huge smile plastered across my face?? LOL! So anyway, please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see the other fabulous eye candy that was created for you by the rest of the DT, then we hope you grab your paper and glue and play along with us in the challenge! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
