CCCB198 & CC3 Anniversary


During last week’s no-power “event”, I was able to stamp a wee bit in my cold stamp room; my friend asked me to make a couple anniversary cards, and this is one I came up with.  It happens to fit the City Crafter Challenge #198 this week, Love Bug (use the word love on your card) as well as the monochromatic pink challenge at the Card Concept #3:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Anniversary Card

The Card Concept wants you to describe the style of your card, which I guess would be Freestyle Collage.  (They list their “styles” on the blog).  It was really easy to make, as the MME papers from the Heirloom line are just beautiful!  I used the SU Heart framelit to cut out a heart on the side, then stamped on the card base under it and added some vanilla seam binding.  I used the reverse side of the diecut to embellish the inside, and added a Bible verse from a retired CHF set:


I love how this came out!! 

Well, we are gearing up for another big snowstorm tomorrow….I have to admit, I will be very glad to see spring!!!  But we just have to hunker down and deal with it!

The little mother:


Enjoy your day!
