Love Ya!




Good Thursday Morning Peeps! Hope your week is going well.

Today's card is one I made with the sketch challenge over on the CCEE Stampers Blog.



I saw the sketch last night on Cindy Haffner's BLOG and started thinking about it. I thought the circles would look cool recessed and you know I have been loving me so kraft card stock lately. I started my card by cutting a 4-1/2 inch square of kraft. I used a 1-3/4 inch circle punch to punch out the circles in the kraft. I added four different pieces of DS paper from the Sending Love Speciality Pack, behind the circles and then another layer of kraft cradstock. When it is all sandwiched together like this it almost looks like chipboard. I used a circle piece of plastic canvas to do the piercing around each circle.

The letters are cut with my naturally serif sizzlit die strip with real red cardstck. The heart in the corner is from the "I {Heart} Hearts stamp set. I added some real red grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment panel is mounted to the card with dimensionals and the circles panel is on dimensionals too.

Well, that is all from me today, we are expecting some bad winter weather later today and tomrrow, with possible power outages, so if I am gone for awhile, that is why.

Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
