My Heart Is Yours

From the second I saw the new borders, I knew they had to be mine.  There, I said it.  I’ve waited patiently a couple of days to post this card that I played around with right before new years.  These borders are so versatile, you can use one, two or border a whole card or page with them.  Being a border junkie, I can finally put the border exactly where ‘I’ want it and ‘I’ say what’s top and what’s bottom.   You might say that I’m border empowered, now!!  I created a panel using the new Spellbinders™ A2 Bracket Borders One.   It was the perfect jumping off point  for a sweet new Valentines Day set from Waltzingmouse Stamps called My Heart, that is deliciously distressed.  I cut the leaf heart out by hand and stamped my sentiment in the center of the heart.  Then I threaded a corsage pin through the filigree openings of the die cut border and added a bow.

Many of you asked about the digital paper I used on my last card from January 1.  My record keeping is horrible and I simply pulled it and this one from a stack of papers I had printed some time ago – I’ll keep looking, but email me if this looks familiar.  Most of my digital papers are from the Crafty Secrets CD’s HERE.

    Your work IS Extrodinare, Exquisite, Elegant.
    You are truly an inspiration.
    When I am feeling down, I find your blog to browse to put the sunshine in my day. (I’d like to be that little mouse sitting on the corner of your work desk).
    I have to have surgery on my right arm in 11-days so I’ll be stopping by daily for a dose of medicine!
