hugs & kisses

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend! I spent part of mine cleaning up my stamp room and setting up my light tent in another area where I can leave it out all the time. I am far from a "neat freak", but I do work better when my room has been reorganized. Once I finished, I was ready to stamp, so I pulled out my Cristabell image from Whipper Snapper, inked her up and colored her. While I was assembling the rest of my card, Sabrina came in and when she saw the image she said, "sheep card - Auntie Mary", and she was right! She knows her Auntie loves them!

I paper-pieced the heart balloon with the same patterned paper I used (from K & Company Lovely). The sentiment reads "hugs & kisses" along the bottom of the card and is from Papertrey Ink's, Simple Valentine. The three rectangular panels were border punched with mini scalloped hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
