Hearty “I love you” Card

AHS-197-Barb-Derksen

I had a wonderful creative evening with Nina and Judy last night and I enjoyed making a very simple take on this challenge from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #197

I used a Simon Says DieNamics Die cut rectangular cut out of a 6 x 6 DP Heidi Swapp block for the base.  I added a circle punched out of cardstock with this sentiment from Your Next Stamp.  For my embellishments I simply punched tiny hearts from heavy glitter cardstock.

I get pleasure out of leaving little tidbits after my posts so today I’m sharing a hint I stumbled across by accident.  I have been wearing a glittery nailpolish for a while but it was at the stage where it was beginning to flake off and snag on everything so it had to come off before I got really annoyed.  I, unfortunately, have a problem with the feel of cotton or cotton balls.  Makes me all squeamish and when it crunches I literally flinch.  You know, the feeling like some folk get when they hear nails going down a chalkboard.  Anyways, for lack of something sturdier than paper towels,I hit upon the thought I might try a used dryer sheet and goodness gracious it works like a charm!

  1. Thank you for your kind words on my post Barbara! Your card is so lovely! Bright & cheery! At first glance I though your punched hearts were quilled roses, they look very thick. So pretty!
