DSCN2854Hi Everyone! I signed up to swap some cards with some fellow demonstrators from Stampin' Connection – a demo site where we all share cards, videos, and chit-chat with one another. (that site alone is worth the price of admission!)

(wink) I told you I was gaga about this stamp! I've been challenging myself to think mash-up. Stamps and such that doesn't seem like they should go together, but do. The More Amore Designer Paper 129309 has a heart theme throughout – one might think it's only for Valentine's Day. But when paired with the Swallowtail stamp (wood mount 129213, clear mount 129216) and Lacey & Lovely (w 122885, c 122887), it makes it an any-day card!

Heat embossing the image with a darker embossing powder allows the Swallowtail to come to the foreground of the card.

Being Fab – Bless someone. We may never know how  much a smile to a stranger, a dinner taken to a neighbor, a couple of packs of diapers to the new mom or dad, an extra prayer, or a card in the mail might mean to someone. Take time to bless someone today! AND allow someone to bless you 🙂
