Thinking of You

I love the Hero Arts Love From the Garden stamp I used here & wanted to try a totally different look with it.  This time I white embossed on kraft cardstock & added some color with a beautiful red glitter gel pen included in the Blog Candy I won from Alexandra.  I matted it with white cardstock & mounted it to the card front with foam tape.  The sentiment is also Hero Arts--a versatile set called Messages with Flourish. I'll probably use this for a Valentine, but it'd also work just to surprise a friend with unexpected happy mail.  If you click on the links you will find the stamps at a2z Scrapbooking where you can use GRETA15 to get 15% off a minimum $25 purchase.

I'm entering the Heartful challenge at Fusion as the red & white hearts in the photo inspired me. The challenge at The Kraft Journal is Made in Minutes so I'm entering there for the first time.  Also another entry for Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday.
Gorgeous sunny day & tomorrow I work so we finally got out for our drive.  
Thought you might enjoy a picture of Fritz scrunched in between a plant & the sliding glass door so he could lay in the sun stripe while we got ready to go. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  5. I love how you coloured in just small parts of the image - and it definitely pops on the kraft! And lol at Fritz - they always find that teensy bit of sun :)
