Freshly Made 70

Happy day my dear Friends!! How's that for a change in my greeting - lol! It just sort of came out and I thought it was kind of nice. The weather outside is definitely frightful! It rained last night and the temperatures were below freezing so they call that freezing rain. Now everything is a sheet of ice. Yuck! I wished it had snowed instead. It is foggy and dreary and quite depressing. But I get to venture out (very carefully) and work on some stitching today! It's been a while since I worked on my project so this will be a good day to do that! I just hope the roads aren't so nasty.

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. So clean and simple and fun! I have made more Valentine cards this year than ever! But I am really liking all the Valentine paper and stamps! So here is another one. I took a strip of Naturals Ivory card stock and adhered a strip of Basic Grey that was punched with the dotted ribbon scallop border punch. This is then adhered to a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock. I carefully cut apart a doily heart from the More Amore designer paper and popped it up onto the panel. Then I punched a heart from Primrose Petals using the Full Heart punch and sponged the edges with Primrose Petals ink. To the back of this I adhered a strip of Naturals Ivory that was stamped with the greeting from Sweet Essentials in Primrose Petals and flagged at one end. This heart is popped up onto the other heart. I added three silver brads under the greeting and popped up the panel onto a card base of Naturals Ivory. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!
