LOVE . . .

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I have a quick card that came together out of necessity!
That means I had pieces and parts laying around on 
my work table and of course I couldn't throw anything away so
why not put it together into a card!  

Here's what I'm talking about . . .

I've had this red Poppystamps 'Gentle Hearts' panel laying around for a couple of weeks!  
Poppystamps - Dies - Gentle Hearts
When I die cut it, it cut differently than
I originally expected it to so it was set aside (until today!).

And then there is the Tutti Designs 'Flower Love' ...
Tutti Designs - Dies - Flower Love
I first had it cut from pink card stock for another project but of
course I couldn't discard those cute little hearts that popped out.  Then
when I cut it from black for today's card, I couldn't discard the black
hearts so added them to the center of the hearts in
my gentle hearts die cut panel.  You know what they say . . .
Waste Not ... Want Not

Anyone who knows me, knows all this white space drives me
crazy ... hence the hand doodling!  LOL

Quick ... Easy ... Ready to Mail!!
Hope you like it!!

Well who would have thought such a striking card was made from scarps. Thanks for joining in with the current AAA Cards Challenge.

I love how the Gentle Hearts cuts and stitches, and then there's that cute Flower Love... they're perfect together! Of COURSE you had to make this card! You're too funny about the white space. It's really hard to get your head around, isn't it? I'm trying!

Hey, Darlene - thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613! Fun save! I know exactly how you feel about recycling, re-using - but even saving the little tiny hearts was heroic! LOL! Great card!

It is so cute, I love how you used the little hearts to put inside this finished card, your doodling frames it perfectly, and I totally understand not wanting to leave all that white said...

Lovely card! Thank you for playing along with us at AAACards. Hugs - bharati
