My stars and three little chickens....we had another "snow day" today. I was a little surprised that we did, but other parts of our county had bad road conditions (we just couldn't tell it from where we are). My surprise didn't stop me from sleeping in this morning. (Insert shameful face here.) No sirree -- I slept right through that get-up-and-have-coffee-before-the-kids-get-up alarm! I hate when I do that!
Despite having The Piglets around today, I did manage to find time to make a card and I'm popping in to share it. I had to make this one. It was an idea that popped in my head the other night at sleepy time and was haunting me until I tried it out.
I was playing with my Paper Smooches goodies again. So fun! I based this off the sketch this week over at the SPARKS blog.
I used my Tiny Hearts dies and cardstock scraps in the rainbow colors. I die cut each heart from each color cardstock and lined them up on the cardstock strip. The sentiment is white embossed on a black cardstock circle, die cut with my Stitched Circle STAX from MFT. I then white embossed it again on black cardstock and trimmed it by hand before attaching with foam tape. I white embossed it three more times on red, green, and blue cardstock and trimmed just the overlap for the heart in each color and glued those miniscule pieces down (very carefully). The sentiment circle is layered over a larger die cut vellum circle using the same die set. At the very end, I added dots with my White Wink of Stella glitter pen on each heart and on the sentiment.
I played along with a few other challenges today:
Addicted To Stamps: Embossing Dry or Heat, CASology's "Mini" cue card, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes and House Of Cards, Love theme.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
