It's Never Too Late

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Good evening!  What a Wednesday!  A nice mild day in the 50s here in the Triangle of NC. The Hubs and I took the dogs out to not 1, but 2 parks and had a picnic.  We even treated them to cheeseburgers and frostys!  

In keeping with the nice weather, I have a bright and cheery card this evening:

STAMPS: Background design (October Afternoon); Seal (Jenni Bowlin); Girl image (Jenni Bowlin); heart stamp (Recollections).
PAPER: White, navy and red cardstock.
INK: Tuxedo Black (Momento); Mustard (Staz On); Paris Dusk (Momento); red emboss powder.
EXTRAS: Red baker's twine.

I didn't realize until I was finished that this card is pretty much all stamping, except for the twine.  The background stamp is new, I got it just before Christmas and haven't had a chance to use it until now.  The seal or pinked circle stamp is also fairly new, blog candy from The Paper Girls Blog Hop this past fall, and I hadn't used it until now either.  I love how it turned out!  I was originally going to put a sentiment inside but then, I saw my set of hearts sitting on my desk and used one of them instead!    The twine is glued onto the heart and then I pierced 2 holes around the girl image and slipped it through the holes.  This card may just find itself hanging in my own craft studio for myself!

Sunshine Blessings!
