Saturday - January 23



Good afternoon - a little dreary in Wisconsin but the air is warm and damp and the snow is melting. It would be better if the sun was shining and melting the snow. But I will not complain - it is a day where I am not at work. Yeah. Actually I am doing a pretty good imitation of a slug - except I have made a couple cards today - not much on valentine cards - but maybe I can sell a few at work if I get them made.
The challenge at Caardvarks is to use a red heart. I had just bought a package of fun red heart buttons at Hobby Lobby so thought I would use one of them. I have been wanting to use felt and stitching and do a somewhat primitive/homespun type card. I have a package of white heart doilies so I sprayed it with some Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels - Marshmallow so if you look close the heart shimmers. The thread is from a sewing container that I got from my grandmother. Just did a running stitch around the outside edge. Totally not my style but sometimes it is fun to step out of your box and create something different.
Everyone enjoy the remainder of your day.
Size - 5 inch square
Doiley - supplies
Glimmer Mist (marshmallow) from Tattered Angels
Felt
Button - Dress It Up
Stamps - Heart - Studio G; Sentiment - Hero Arts

Don't know what ink I used - I had every red I owned out trying to find a perfect color match.
