Thinking of You

I am so thinking Spring.........it's suppose to warm up a little here today, I do have Daffodils blooming in my flower beds. So it shouldn't be long. How about another Hearfelt Creations creation LOL. This has always been one of my favortie sets, 3371 Dutch Iris Oval. I made a 5 x 7 card, double matte of the 2 new colors I got this past weekend, I embossed the top layer using Kassie's Brocade and using 3 D dots, placed it on top of the image I had colored in with my Prismacolor pencils. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using Cuttlebugs Fanciful Lables, pop dotted it up too.You can't tell it from the picture but I also used a glitter pen around the flower, it's pretty but couldn't get it to show up here. I was gonna link you back to the HC page so you could order your stamp set but they must be working on the page, I couldn't get it opened. Anywho, it's off to the shower then on to work, at least it will be a fun day........we go bowling on Wed. yall have a blessed day and I'll catch up later!!!
