Good Day to you all!This is a scheduled post due to the fact that I will be spending the day at the hospital with my Mom over in Pennsylvania today! She caught a cold over the holiday's and although she thought she was getting better, it came back on her and now she's dehydrated along with all the congestion a cold/flu can cause. Please say a little prayer that she has a speedy recovery .. I appreciate it! She'll be 81 on January 27th.
I just couldn't wait to share this creation with you!! Over on CDAC (Crafter's Digital Art Center), Priscilla starting setting up monthly 'classes' ... in December we made Angels and now in January we are making HEART POCKETS. Denise has offered the template, directions and samples HERE. What fun and you could make these for ANY occasion ... doesn't have to be Valentine's Day but of course hearts are always perfect for Feb. 14th.
Isn't this adorable? As I was creating my card using this NEW technique, I also kept in mind a few challenges going on right now that are requesting SOMETHING NEW.
Here's the recipe for my creation:
Image: NEW Heartwarming Vintage Vintage Photo Creative Scrap (came in the mail only today)
Papers: Paper Pizazz dp, white cs
Inks: Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress
Accessories: NEW pink lace w/pearls & small eyelet, NEW Making Memories Heart Charm, NEW Outline Stickers (rak), gold pilot marker for outlining, Kaiser pearls, Nestabilities scallop heart dies, Fiskars decal scissors, Wilton paper doily, scallop border punch, Michael's dotted swiss ribbon
Technique: NEW Heart Pocket
I apologize for the lesser quality photos ... for some reason my camera was acting up when i was trying to get these pictures and it kept loosing sharpness and it made my distress ink look orange ... but I think you get the idea how pretty this card really is IRL.
Here are the other challenges I mentioned:
Creative Cottage #30 - Something NEW
Woodware USA - Something NEW
Paper Sundaes - Something NEW
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Something New + ribbon
Thanks so much for stopping by today! And thanks in advance for your prayers! (update forthcoming)
