Just Because I {Heart} You...

I really love this printed twill know why?
Because it came in a beautiful care-package
all the way from the UK. bestie Sarah purchased it from
one of my favorite stores, John Lewis'
and I have been waiting for just the right time
to play with it.

Coincidentally, Sarah is our host for 
this week's challenge.
I love this vintage print that she chose for
this week's color story, don't you?!

It's been a CrAzY busy week in my house,
as I am sure it has been in yours, so I went
CAS all the way!!!

The ornament was created using my
Sizzix/BasicGrey Die and then embossed
with my brand, new Cuttlebug EF.
I absolutely love the design it makes.
I then heat embossed the top with
silver and edged the ornament sides with
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in 'Frayed Burlap'.
The rest is just layering and adhering.
The beautiful heart center is from Prima.

It's been quite a week over in The Cafe.

Have you checked out the new line-up of
designers over there?  Phenomenal!!!
It's going to be an all-star 2011
and we are excited for you to be a part of it!
