Made with love

Hope you are having a lovely Saturday so far.  I am still in my housecoat, drinking my wonderful coffee... after sleeping in a bit.  Life is good!

Decided to play along with this month's love themed contest over at Hero Arts. For the sketch, I used another one of Lucy's fabulous sketches (thank you Lucy!!!).  Really like how this turned out.  I'm not usually into using hearts on my cards but my friend Cheiron has inspired me with cards like this and this.  

Found out some sad news this week.  My very local stamp store, where I have taught classes, is closing.  Lasting Impressions will be closing at the end of this month.  I'm really sad about it... I will miss the great staff and customers there.  It's just a reminder to everyone to shop locally and support your local businesses, crafty or otherwise.

Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Pretty card, Glenda. I am so afraid to try stick pins in my cards. I am afraid either I or my recipient will end up a bloody mess!

  2. GORGEOUS card, Glenda! I LOVE the classic color combo, the embossed hearts and the layout!!!

  3. This is drop-dead gorgeous, Glenda!! WOW! The start to your day sounds lovely. I hope the rest of it was just as good!

  4. Gorgeous card for the challenge, Glenda! I love the pearl heart pin and wish I had some love-specific HA stamps. ;)
