Forever & Always

Hi All...Happy Weekend! Any big plans for Super Bowl Sunday? For once, I really don't care either way who wins. As a Steeler fan, I would much rather not watch the Patriots get to celebrate, but if that happens, we shall just switch the channel ;)

My cards for you today were inspired by this super cool card that caught my eye on Pinterest. It was designed by Kasia over at The Nature of Crafty Things. These hearts are just too fun!


As I've said before, the Hearts Framelits are just fabulous! I would never have been able to make this card with a punch. Punches are great, don't get me wrong, but you are limited as to where you get to punch. With the
se dies, the options are endless!


I kept the same design that Kasia
created, but I swapped out the papers for the Everyday Enchantment DSP. The sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set. 'Forever & Always'...it could be used for a Wedding, Anniversary or Valentine's Day card.

Which is your favorite: Blue/Green or Blue/Red? I love them both and I'm not sure that I could pick a favorite. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: Loving Thoughts
Paper: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla Cardstock; Everyday Enchantment DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic Pad
Accessories: Heart Framelits, Chocolate Chip Marker, Red Buttons, Green Buttons, Linen Thread, Glue Dots and Pop Dots/Dimensionals

Gorgeous cards, Julie! I have that card pinned too, but of course I couldn't make it with my punches. I guess I'm going to need those framelits. :)

I love them both. I guess it depends if you like bright or more of a muted color. I would probably use the green one.
