Stamp Simply #121 - Have a Heart!


Well, here we are at another FridaySmiley from millan.net and it's time for another Stamp Simply challenge! With Valentine's Day being the next card-giving holiday on the horizon, Sharon has decided today's challenge should have a heart! Just make something with a heart/Valentine/love theme! It doesn't necessarily have to be a Valentine, though. Perhaps you have a wedding coming up that you need a card for? For today, just have a heart.... feel the love!

For my card, I couldn't resist using this sweet Whipper Snapper wheelbarrow stamp once again. It's so fun to color, and with this image I paired some brand new Lovestruck paper from Making Memories, and my new Martha Stewart double loop border punch! I got these punches at the store last week, and just had to open one up for demo'ing!

I added a little pink button with string to my tag on the right side. Did you know Sharon stocks a great variety of buttons in her Stamp Simply store? AND they're on sale right now! Check 'em out! I also used Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge #55 for the layout on my card.
Be sure and hop over to Sharon's blog to see her beautiful sample for today. There you will also find Mr. Linky so that you can link your own heart-full creation for all to see! After you visit Sharon, be sure to pay a visit to my Stamp Simply sisters blogs, too!
