This Heart's for You

This is my second post today so to view the Stamp Something DT post, click HERE or scroll down.  THANKS!

Good morning and a very good Friday to you all!  It's the start of the weekend (in a few hours) and I'm just soooo excited.  My grandkids are coming to visit and I can't wait!!  So I'll get my work work done, straighten up my house and go pick 'em up.  Yipee!!

But, in the mean time, let's talk HEARTS.  That's the theme for the Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge this time.  Isn't that handy for this time of year??  It's certainly helping me out!  The hardest part of this challenge?  Which hearts to use!!  There are so many wonderful hearts options out there.  Can't use 'em all, but they're all so cute!!  I must say... I do like what I finally decided on.  This little Whipper Snapper cupid bear.  Come on now... all together... awwwwwwwwwwwww.  LOL!!


Our sponsor for this challenge is Stamp Happens.   I hope you'll have some time to go browse around their store a little while.  They have some great stamping stuff.  They were kind enough to provide the DT some DPs and matching stickers.  Sadly I couldn't find a way to work the cute little stickers they included in my stash, so I'll use them sometime soon.  Aren't the DPs they sent my way just great!?!  They're from two different Bo Bunny sets and I may just have to get me some.


You have to look very close, but I stamped the light pink cs with a Whimsie Doodles heart from the L'il Cupid set... now sold as rubber stamps (see SALE information in my sidebar)!!  I stamped these with VersaMark so they are very subtle.  I sponged the edges of the image with VersaMagic pixie dust and used white glitter on his wings.

For this layout, I used the Our Creative Corner challenge which is a great sketch this week.  Thank you OCC!!

That's it for today.  Don't forget to go play along at Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge.  We can't wait to see what you create!!
