You're in My Thoughts, You're in My Heart

What an adventure trying to get this picture. Winter just makes it difficult to get good sunlight, but add in cloud cover and it's next to impossible. I took about 25 pics today in two different locations to get this one shot. A sneak peek into the secret life of Bloggers ;)

This card covers two challenges: Mojo Monday 171 and the Friday Mashup #25 Sweet on Hearts.
The Mojo Challenge was perfect for this card because I just got this DSP from the 'Man in Brown' and it let me play with a few different papers in the pack. This sentiment and the hearts for the Mashup Challenge were the perfect finish.

If you don't have this paper yet, it's a must have. Not sure why I waited so long to get it ;)

Stamps: I {Heart} Hearts & Word Play
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Very Vanilla Cardstock; Love Letter DSP
Ink: Jet Black Stazon & Tea Dye Distress Ink
Accessories: Paper Piercer & Mat Pack, Black Satin Ribbon and Linen Thread

This came out so pretty... I love the look of it with the DSP. So all those shots you took were worth it! I'm the same way, take like 20 pictures to get just one, you should see the photo folders on my computer lol..

Thanks for playing along with The Friday Mashup!

This card is beautiful! I love the colors and all of the layering. Okay, now I have to have that DSP :)
I know what you mean about having to take SO many pics, just to get one or two good ones. I think I took 8 pics of the card I made yesterday.
Anyway...I love your card!

I love this card! I had a tough time with photos till I bought a small table-top Ott light. With some of the 12" x 12" white backing from my dsp packs, I create a white "box" of sorts and it's helped immensely with taking photos of my cards and other projects.
