Bless Your Heart

I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday!  It was incredibly hot here in Montreal...looks like summer has arrived!  It almost makes it too miserable to craft, move, or do anything at all...
But I made it through :)  Gotta love fans and AC :)

I was so excited when the mail lady came today!  She delivered to me a wonderful new stamp set that I won from Cardz TV!  I just couldn't wait to start using them :)
I don't have a lot of rubber stamps, just not something that I purchase very often.  So most of my sentiments and images are digital stamps.  But I always looonnnggg to have just simple little sentiment stamps that will fit practically anywhere and be perfect for any card.  Well, I must say I am loving the stamps I got today.  It's the Encouraging Thoughts set and it has just about everything!  While most of it could be geared toward sympathy cards, they are almost all versatile!  I love that!  So I used the "Bless your Heart" stamp and paired it with Ava Heart from Bugaboo Stamps.

She's all colored in and glittered out :)  I added glossy accents to almost all the hearts on this card.  The hearts in the image have clear glitter sprinkled on top of the glossy accents.
The frame is cut with my cricut from the Lacy Labels cartridge.  I also cut out the swirl and hearts with my cricut.  The smaller heart at the bottom is layered 5 times to create a "button", then I glued the swirl to the back and adhered the bow to the front.

The corner panels are embossed with my swiss dots folder.
