Sherry says it is soooo hot where she is and I am sitting in front of a heater with a shawl around my shoulders cause it is cold here!!! We are in our first month of winter. The challenge today over at 365 Cards was to Piece It Together where we had to paper piece our design. I went through my stamps and came up with this old beauty from my ancient stash and decided to use it. I don't have a lot of stamps that I felt like I wanted to paper piece them hehehe and maybe I just wanted something easy to cut out hehe that is more like it. We went down to Armidale on a road trip today which is 1 1/2 hours away and did some shopping. I finally found the DCWV Once Upon A Time paper stack and quickly grabbed it off the shelf. . .doing the happy dance all the way to the car and embarrassing my daughter Ashleigh while I was doing it and because it embarrassed her what did I do. . .did it some more!!! OOOhhhhh I am evil to my girls lol.
The designer paper I used here is a deceased paper set from Stampin' Up! that I got off a friend on my stamp camp, she gave me so many papers and I just love looking through them. This paper is not one I would have purchased while it was in therefore it was good to have single sheets of things like that. The orange centre of the heart is the flip side of the polka dot paper and I decided to stamp my bow on that as well. I used a Build A Brad from SU in the centre of the flower using the polka dot paper as well. I don't love this card but I don't hate it either. That is it for me tonight.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
