Heartily Yours

It was a rainy, gray day today. I did get a couple mile walk in before the rain really got a start. I went by way of the post office to mail the card I made yesterday for my son's new apartment. So once the rain started I settled into my craft area and rearranged my stamps and then tried a new die that I got this week. I order several dies from Simon Says Stamps from their Die-cember release before Christmas and they came this week. So it's the first time I got to use this die.


I really loved the look of this Stacked Hearts die and I thought with Valentine's Day coming I could use this one a lot. So I cut this die in a number of different colors, all from scraps from my scrap box, and used a rainbow effect to fill in pieces of the die. The sentiment is taken from a retired Gina K stamp set. I die cut it with Clear Dollar Stamps (no longer in business) Designer Tags and used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching around the tag. I added more of the colored hearts to the inside to carry on the heart theme.
I am entering these challenges:


Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow is supposed to be back to the deep freeze so I'll probably stay indoors and craft. I do have to get dinner together as my daughter and SIL will be over. And Tricia and I usually make an extra meal so we have a start to our cooking for the week. Here's hoping your weekend is crafty!
