Hello There

When I saw a card similar to this, I just HAD to make my own version. I love the color combination and the Tin Tile embossed Vellum is just stunning! Plus, when I last lived in New Hampshire, the desk in my home office overlooked a southeast facing window and this card brings back memories to the days when cute little yellow finches would entertain the cats and I at the feeder on the front lawn. This bird is finch-like to me, but it could also be a blue bird with some Balmy Blue Ink or a Robin.

From My Heart

Today I’m taking you on an adventure into the pages of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog. There are so many beautiful ideas in the catalog it seems a shame not to make and send them and CASE-ing (Copy and Share Everything) the catalog gets me to PaperCrafting faster. I’m all about that. This one brings us all the way back to page 168, where the Heart Punch Pack is found and this card uses both of these fun punches. I’m also on a mission this week to prove to myself that hearts aren’t just for Valentine’s. Enjoy!
