Simply Amazing and a Winner!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  The weekend is upon us again!  What sort of plans do you have?  For us it's a weekend of birthdays, one party each night!  February seems to be a busy birthday month for us!

Today I have a card to share using Hero Arts True Love stamp set, I love the silhouette girl image along with the frame!  I thought it paired so well with these papers from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found 3 collection!


I couldn't wait to share this card with you!  My friend Alison was over and spotted it and gasped!  She loved it! Funny story I had pearls on it but she saw a package of dots on it and told me, you should put these dots on there instead of the pearls!  HA!  I did have matching dots (the ones she said to use only had light pink that would work) to this paper but couldn't find them!  So I dug through my mess and found them, took 4 tries to find them where I put them so I could find them easily!  I thought it was funny that she who doesn't paper craft wanted the dots on there!  And there you go the dots have moved from hoarding status to actually used status, my first card with them!  I also used another new stamp set by W Plus 9 design studio, Quite like you!  I love that sentiment!  Now if your wondering if this card will be given to a birthday girl this weekend all I have to say is I don't think so!  This one may be one of those that sit on my craft area so I can admire it...

And I have a winner for the Made with Love Blog Hop who wins The Sweet Stamp Shop Nesting stamp set:

Yes, I think you need to keep and admire this one for awhile! Beautiful colours, and I really like the patterned paper layering for the sentiment.

Funny story, Anita. Sometimes design can be a team job. Love how it all turned out - dots and all. Beautiful vintage style.
