Romance is in the Air...


Wanted to share a quick post with you today using a fabulous, 
brand new stamp from Artistic Stamper's 'Romance' Collection.  
Although this center heart is rather small, this stamp is HUGE!


It's a full size background of fun hearts!
I used VersaMark to create a subtle background and then outlined EVERYTHING
with Stardust Stickles.  
A little 'BOO' with the Heidi Grace DP from this past summer.
All the edges were distressed using the Tim Holtz tool.

Found these great tags that are used for tying treat bags 
and thought they would be great for an instant greeting.  

Not a fan of the photo, but it was the best I could do for a Monday...
I KNOW you know what I'm talking about!
Pretty self-explanatory, this one.  
Used my 'Bug' and the Paisley EF for the background 
(thank you Mona). 
Then a little more embossing with the Swiss Dot EF and 
the Scalloped Circles from Spellbinders.
I wish the silver metallic was just a bit 'shinier' in the photo, 
but you can see it. I said before, it's Monday.  So need to get to 'Monday stuff'.
Hope you will leave a comment to let me know you were here.
It's the only way I can comment back.
I love hearing from YOU!
