Friendly Hearts

Good morning, Friends! Are you ready for a great weekend? We will be heading to Denver later this morning because Nick has a basketball tournament over there. The bummer part about this is that his first game is later this evening when our beloved Broncos will be playing. We have told him that we may have to stay at the hotel and watch the Broncos - lol! No really... And then again, maybe we really don't want to watch? So I said that we could watch the beginning and see how they are doing and then if they aren't doing well, we could go and watch Nick. I know... Bad parents. But he will be well cared for by his coaches. O.k. we will continue to think about it. Too many exciting things going on!

Today's card was inspired by one I saw on the Hero Arts blog. I love clean and simple cards and this one definitely fits the bill! My card base is Whisper White to which I rounded the corners on the top and bottom of the right hand side. Then I stamped the dotted outline heart in Riding Hood Red. I attached a piece of designer paper from the Twitterpated pack and flagged one end. On scrap pieces of Whisper White I stamped two other hearts (all images are from the I {Heart} Hearts set) - one in Baja Breeze and the other in Blushing Bride, and cut them out. I attached the Baja Breeze one with glue dots because the glue dots gives just a hint of dimension instead of gluing it down flat. The Blushing Bride heart is popped up. My final touch was to punch a flower from Riding Hood Red using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and add a rhinestone. And it's done! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super day!
