From The Heart

Happy Wednesday!

 Donna Phelan here hosting this week's Challenge!

***** One new rule change, you may enter our Challenge up to 3 times, with a new unique project each time. *****

The Challenge.......FROM THE HEART

The challenge this week...is to make a card that incorporates.....you guessed it.....HEARTS.

This Weeks Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps


All the stamps and Fri-Dies are designed by Michele , and are based on her love for Clean And Simple design, hence the CAS in CAS-ual. However, they will delight any stamper's style! Whether you are a CAS enthusiast or a lover of Utterly Adorable Layers, you will have a blast getting inky with them. 

The stamps are made in the USA of the finest clear photopolymer, and the coordinating line of wafer thin dies are also made in the USA.

2 Prizes

2 - $15 Gift Certificate each to the STORE

My first card

I used the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps,  3 In A Row and matching dies, Tic-Tac-Toe.  Grabbing my Minc Foiling Machine, I added some pretty Gold Foil to my die cut hearts.  Stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink. 

Finished off the inside with a second sentiment and a pretty little heart.

My 2nd card

I used the same CAS-ual Fridays Stamps for a different look.  Stamping sentiments, 'nuff said and xoxo while using heart die cut outs in many different Designer Papers.  I first drew 3 straight lines using a Sakura Silver Glitter pen so I could line my hearts up adding Adhesive Pearls for accents.

Now it's your turn to create with hearts, hope you join in all the fun.....remember there are TWO prizes up for grabs!

    1. Hey Roberta, I went looking for your Blog and your card post.....not sure if I have the correct one....anyways never fear I have put an SOS out to Joyce. :)

    2. I can fix it but need your URL. The link to this site is supposed to be added to your blog post not the link tool:-) Maybe we need a video:-)
