A Kind Heart.......

Hello friends,

hope you all are doing well today. For my post today I participated in the Ways To Us It Challenge over at SCS

where Julia asked to use stripes. I had this DCWV "Sweet" stack laying around for a while now and this is the first time I got to use it. I am a horder when it comes to paper. :D:D.

Anyhow, this is the card I came up with. My hubby always tells me I am not using blue enough, so today, blue it is!!! Well, shades of blue. Some of those crochet flowers I made (and seem not to be able to stop making them (rolling eyes) came in handy. I jazzed them up a little with some silver very cool spacer beads and some blue crystals. The tag was cut with my Cricut Expression and the Accent Essentials cartridge. I love the fact that you can cut that tag just about any size you want.
Paper: SU Soft Sky, DCWV Sweet Stack
Stamps: SU Friendship Flowers
Ink: Palette Ballet Blue, StazOn Black
Accessories: Cricut Expression Accent Essentials, white satin ribbon, silver spacer beads with blue crystals in the middle, silver heart charm, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch

So, friends, what you all think about this one?

Let me tell you guys, I truly appreciate all of those comments you have been leaving me. It is nothing better than reading those nice comments when you had a day that was not so nice.

Off I go to get some chores around the house done.

Beautiful!! You always have the coolest little details - you might hoard paper, but you sure don't hoard your wonderful embellishments!! I love the little silve beads and rhinestones added to your flowers!! And that bow is just perfect!! {hugs from Korea}

Those crochet flowers are amazing-- with the blue and the sentiment - it all goes perfect together on this card.
