From the Bottom of My Heart

As I reflect back on the last six months of my deployment I think about how it flew by so fast.  The saying, "time flies when you're having fun" holds true to me.

It's been real, it's been fun, but it hasn't always been real fun.  I'm just happy that Stampin' Up! is a portable business and hobby!

This card is for you, my stamping friend, my visitors, my subscribers, my family, and my friends.  My deepest sincerity for thinking of me and sending me your thoughts, prayers, and care packages.

There could be no better stamp set to use use when giving thanks.  To me, it gives off an old-fashioned feeling when inked on paper.  It's perfect for giving thanks.

I used the Small Heart punch to give the word heart a real red emphasis.  I love rhinestones and take any opportunity to put them anywhere on a card to add the extra sparkle.  Leave me a comment and tell me if you have a favorite embellishment.

Was it Sent with Love?


I first bought this paper (Sent With Love) when it was available on paper.  I never ever used it until I made this card.  I don't know why I didn't use it, but I busted out with it for this card challenge.  But don't fret, it is still available through My Digital Studio (MDS), which you can get a free 30 day trial here.  The Sent With Love Digital Download is also available in MDS.

The two punch outs are not stamps… they are from one of the pages of the designer series paper.  I cut them all out and used them on the card which you too can use by printing them.

In Your Time of Need I’m “Thinking of You…”


When I sat to make this card, I had a heavy heart.  A dear friend lost her father and I was reminded that we are all vulnerable to so many things here on earth.  She’s a pretty strong lady, but still needed to know that I was thinking of her during her time of sorrow.


Although these are the kind of cards I HATE to make, I pour my heart full of LOVE into them.  That is why I put the small heart in it.  My heart is bigger than that =), but a bright red heart on any card brings a little bit of love and warmth… wouldn’t you agree?


I punched out a scalleop circle to add a little cloud around the sentiment and used a white marker to represent my thoughts and prayers for my friend.  Thank you for choosing to stop by my blog.  You are simply beautiful and I appreciate you!
