Heartfelt 'Thanks'...

This was the only creation I was able to accomplish this weekend that was even remotely Valentine related. Life's been just a tad busier lately with trips to and fro with my Dad to Hanover the past couple of weeks, volunteering with AES winter program at our daughter's school... not to mention all my regular duties. Stamping is my time to de-stress... unfortunately a little lack luster. I have a few things rolling around and ready to be played out on paper. *grin*

You will notice that I've been manipulating my copyright signature on my photos. I really like the watermarks that I've seen around 'bloggyland' of late. I even thought of purchasing one of my own... being a NON-tech genius... I didn't think I'd be able to apply it to my photos. *wink* Without further a do...

Stamp images are Hero Arts 2007 Flourish Flowers, Stampin' Up! Like It A Latte and Stampin' Up! Fancy Flexible Phrases. Images were stamped in real red, certainly celery and old olive. Corners were notched using Stampin' Up! ticket punch. Cuttlebug 'thanks' embossing folder was applied using the Ellison Big Shot. Before adhering any layers down the May Arts stitched ribbon and brown brads were applied. Dimensionals were used on a heart bud.

I have a truly supportive family when it comes to my stamping, but sometimes... It's enough already mum... *sheepish grin*

I look forward to our next visit. Until then...

Loving your Creative Cards.

This one looks really pretty. I'm amazed at all the things you can do with a cuttlebug folder.
