IB58 Hugs & Kisses

Happy Thursday, everyone!  It's time for another Inspired By challenge, and Laurel just keeps finding the prettiest prompts for us!  But first, here's my card, a plethora of vintagey, pink- and rose-colored hearts:

And here is Laurel's prompt:

These gorgeous papers from My Mind's Eye seemed to fit the challenge; they do most of the work all by themselves!  I cut little stitched banners from some of the patterns and aligned them along the left edge, then tied some assorted twines on top:

I added another little banner and stamped my sentiment in Merry Merlot, then added some sequins and a silver foil heart that I colored with a Light Real Red Blend:

Another sweet Valentine to add to my's a week away, are you ready?  If not, let our challenge get your creative juices flowing, and share your creations with us at the Inspired By blog!  Can't wait to see them!

Our weather went from single digits to the sixties in a week!  Cassidy took advantage of the weather to play outside a bit:

It is still winter, though....we'll pay for this nice day with some chilly weather this weekend! Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love these papers! All the banners you added are perfect with those hearts! It's always fun to pull out something we have on hand and use it. I am slowly parting with some of my stash. 😀 Glad Cassidy could enjoy a break from the cold!

LOve me some MME papers … these beauties have really done the trick, LeAnne! Your addition of the twine adds a sweet touch - and totally mimics the wood in our photo!
