My Heart Belongs to You



Good morning, or afternoon/evening, everyone!
 
I hope you are doing well and that the new year has been good so far. Mine has been a bit hectic and as a result I feel like I'm constantly playing a game of catch up lol. I guess that's to be expected with all the hats I wear but it does get overwhelming sometimes.
 
When Mona Pendleton, owner of the CR84FN Color Challenge announced recently that the challenge is coming to an end with CRFN8470 I was sad but not shocked. I've never been able to fathom how Mona keeps up with everyday life commitments much less her hefty crafty ones too. I will miss this challenge but more importantly I want to see Mona fulfill all of her creative endeavors and understand her need to lighten the load. It was a special moment when she asked me to be her January Guest Designer and I'll always remember my time at CR84FN fondly. Before it wraps officially, I thought I'd sneak this card which I originally created to submit for the CR84FN69 challenge in. I started second guessing myself and made another card so I am sharing it now. You can visit CR84FN69 to see my color choices and here's a little close up.
 
 
 
 
I used a stamp wheel to create the script background and a sentiment from Verve's Love Notes set to convey my message. Both of these stamps will count toward my goal of using my unmounted stamps and stamp wheels in 2013. Dies from MFT, TE and Verve were used and Lavender Lace Liquid Pearls provide the perfect accent. Some gray/white twine wrapped around my panel and tied in a bow put the finishing touch on this card.
 
 
Thanks for visiting me today and please don't be a stranger. You are welcome anytime! Also, if you are unsure what the acronyms mean for the products used click on the Crafty Acronyms page at the top. :)
 
Hugs,
Lisa

L1...She's a beauty!! You've of course used one of my favorite colors and that exquisite heart frame is making me drool. The inking on that is a perfect choice. A very classy, fun and elegant Valentine card. :)
Stay above water with all your hats you wear. Think of you daily and hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
hugs,
L2

Lisa, I fluttered to your lovely blog to thank you for the kind words and well-wishes for my parents 50th anniversary! I'm so glad I did because I was greeted with this beautiful card. :o) No more second-guessing yourself on this creation, as it is gorgeous. So elegant, yet whimsical.. I am enamored with that heart doily. Your words in this post are as lovely as your project. :o) You are a ray of sunshine to many! (And I really hope you get a Cameo!)

Hugs and blessings!
