XOXO -

Hello & Happy Monday my favorite Crafty Peeps!
Are you enjoying the 3 day weekend? I have to work,
so I'm not! LOL But I'll have the rest of the week off
cuz I get to go pick up my son from Marine Boot Camp!
I'm so excited to see him graduate and visit with him
before he heads off to somewhere else! :)

I won't be around this week - so I have some Pre-Scheduled
Posts I wanted to share with you - When I get back, I hope
to catch up and visit you! :)

In the mean time, here's today's Crafty Project!




I've said this before - I'm trying to step outside my "Normal"
Comfort zone! I like to use Papers & Layers on my cards -
So I'm trying to make cards that use White & Less Layers
Trust me when I say this is HARD for ME! :) 




On these Valentine's cards I used my Blending tool to create
the pink background -



I made 1 darker than the other - just to see the difference

As basic as the are, I think they came out lovely -

Here's the Recipe -

Card Stock - Georgia Pacific White, Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Doodlebug (Sweet Things)
Ranger Blending tool
Inks - Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, 
Rich Razzleberry, Cherry Cobbler (Stampin' Up)
Scallop Heart Set, Tiny Heart, Xoxo Dies - My Creative Time
Clear Wink of Stella Pen - On the Hearts & XOXO
Stitched Card Mat - Die-namics
White Glitter Sprinkle Dots - Doodlebug
Pink & Blue Glitter Sprinkle Dots - Freckled Fawn
