Hello friend and Happy Friday!

There are several lovely HEART challenges out in blogland
and I thought I'd play along.

Over the holidays a set of cards came in from one of our 
contribution companies and it had this lovely fabric
heart on it.  Not much more than that so I removed it
and placed it in my stash to use on a card of my own.  
Today's the day I've put it to happy use.

I die cut a background heart using the OLD Spellbinder Scallop Heart dies.
This small die was left over from something else and I thought
it brought better attention to the fabric by placing it in the center.

I created a banner using the Sue Wilson 'Stitched Flags'
Sue Wilson Designs - Frames & Tags - Stitched Flags
and added the Technique Tuesday 'Hugs' for my sentiment.
Technique Tuesday - DIY Dies - Say It - Hugs
My background was embossed using an older Provo Craft
'Swirls' embossing folder but you could use just
about any embossing folder for this design.

Challenges to share in are:
Digi Choosday Crafting Challenge - ATG / Recycle (recycled the fabric heart)
Cut It Up Challenge #166 - Hearts

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by today,
 have a great weekend ahead!!
As always ...
