Talk about a real challenge this week…I thought about The Friday Mashup # 111 – using a pencil- for quite a while! I finally settled on using a “stencil” i.e. the SU Simply Scored. Used mostly for scoring designs, it can be used as a stencil as well;) So, I got out the lead and got to work creating the pencil borders under the image and along the bottom edge. I MASHED it up using the neutral Basic Gray and a pop of red.

My sweet neighbor needed a Sympathy card so I used the Dynamic Duos #49 colors to create a loving note for her to share with her relative. The SU set is called You Are Loved, how appropriate to use for a card to show someone you care about their loss. The inside says ….to heal your heart.

I recently purchased some gorgeous ribbon off the SU Clearance Rack and got to use it on the FMS #72 this weekend. I loved the Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla combo so added some pretty hearts from the Hearts-a-Flutter framelits and the SU hearts dies. I popped on a cute little heart button I didn’t know I had when I was scrounging through my red button jar:) I had some leftover corrugated cardboard from a project my daughter did at least 8 years ago in junior high and used it for one of the hearts! I just have to post her ship cause I cannot let go of it…
Anyhow, here’s my card:
Here’s a sneak peek at the new SU Hearts A Flutter stamp set with coordinating dies ready for order January 3rd from the Spring Catalog- they even come bundled for extra savings! I also used the current You Are Loved stamp set for the sentiment. These two sets are just perfect for Valentine’s Day that will be here before you know it! I am submitting this to Addicted to CAS #3 for its SWEET challenge.
