Wow, where does time go?! It seems like it was just New Year's, I blinked & now it is nearly Valentine's Day..... I've been MIA lately, maybe that's why I've lost track of time. Lot's going on at home (ugh! tired of stress!) & I have been catching up on some reading too (awww my long lost pals, really good books! lol!) So I decided I was well past due for some crafty time! (plus, having a holiday coming up that requires gifts &/or cards is a good push!)
So here is a little goody I put together for the hubby. The frame & sentiment I picked up off the internet.. before I started tracking where I found stuff, sorry I can't point you where to find (I think the sentiment was a freebie from Sentimental Sunday). I inked up w/ distressed inks in vintage photo & fired brick then fussy cut & added a few stamped hearts-I added a few to the cardstock & dp also. The dp is from my scrap pile, & the flowers are some I picked up in the dollar bin at Michaels a few weeks ago. The pearl is from CTMH & i colored it w/ my Bic markers so it would match the color scheme
I got REALLY wild & did the inside of the card too... using the same distressed inks over a hand written sentiment plus I followed the same basic layout from the Mojo Monday sketch I used for the front. The heart in the back ground & the stamped corner are all from a set called Hearts2love from the {Stamps} of Life  so are the hearts on the card front. Have I ever mentioned that I {heart} her stamps?!
Here are all the challenges I am playing along with this week:
