i {heart} u...

Hi there!!! Long time no blog- you'd think I got a puppy or something!?! :)
Finally back with something crafty- I know you've had enough non-craftiness out of me!
I've put my Pink Paislee queen bee paper to work here... It's so pretty on it's own! I also got out my Practicing Creativity 'key to my heart' stamps.

I stamped the heart on red cardstock with versamark & embossed with UTEE, then cut it out. I then popped it up between the i & u which had been stamped with PTI fresh snow ink. I cut a narrow piece of the dotted paper & pleated it, then machine stitched it in place.

I used my MS doily punch on more red cardstock along the bottom.
I used some red heart brads (from Joanns I think) to bring it all together.
I would like to thank all of you that were so sweet & went over to May Arts to leave a comment for me there!! I know how busy we ALL are- I really appreciate that several of you did that for me!!! So this one's for all the folks that swing by my little corner of blogland... i {heart} u! :)
I'm entering this in the Wee Memories Challenge #18 (thanks Erin!!)!
Thanks so much for stopping by- I'd LOVE to hear what you think!!!

  11. Oh how the red brings a lot of sophistication to this cute little number. I love how it just pops off the card and directs your eye throughout the piece-an amazing thing considering the size of your canvas! Congrats on your fab four over at wee memories!
