Tlc151 Felt w/the heart

Todays technique challenge was to make a pocket heart. I dont have ANY valentine stamps YET!LOL! I cant belive I dont have any! I went digging through my stamps and finally found this CTMH sentiment and I knew what I wanted to do. I love this sentiment I think its beautiful!

My card base is textured river rock and all dp is Brocade. I distressed and sponged the dp w/choc chip ink. When I first started stamping I distressed and sponged EVERYTHING!LOL! I loved it! I still love the distressed look but I dont use it very much anymore. Isnt it funny how your style and taste can change as trends change! I used gold antique eyelets for the heart and in all corners of the card. Eyelets are something else I very seldom use. Im just a brad kinda girl!LOL! Eyelets are sooooo much easier to do with a cropadile so I dont actually cringe when I have to do eyelets anymore!LOL! I faux stitched around the old olive layer and went over it with my choc chip marker. Can you believe there is only one thing stamped on my card and I used 2 different patterns of dp! YAAAYYY for me!LOL!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I finally got my SU catties in this weekend. When Brayden was sick I missed the deadline to order the catalogs to have them by the 1st. Next time I will make sure I dont miss the deadline! I ordered them on the 15th of Dec and just got them this weekend. Thats almost a MONTH! Anyone interested in a catty give me a call or email me.
