Stuck On U: Hearts

   I added lots of layers and dimension to my heart creation.
  On Friday I was visiting some of the 263 blogs I follow, and one of my bloggy inspiration friends, Faith Abigail, made this beautiful Halloween card for Stuck On U Sketches challenge blog.  This blog has been around for 2 years and I don't recall ever coming across it before now.  What a gem of a challenge blog!  Now I follow 264 blogs...

  I just found out last week that my aunt's dh has stage four liver cancer.  I want to make each of them a card to let them know how much they are loved.  This hearts challenge was just the motivation I needed to create a card for my aunt.  I started with my Jillibean Soup "Dutch Mustard" 6x6 paper pad and pulled out the hearts paper.  I recently got my Sophie cartridge, but I have only used it once.  I was crafting with my sweet friend, Court, and she suggested this heart cut (p.59.)

If you are looking for inspiration, check out Stuck On U Sketches challenge blog...you'll be glad you did!  Their DT is uber-talented.

Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Sophie p.59 cut @ 3 1/2"
paper:  Jillibean Soup "Dutch Mustard Soup" 6x6 mini pad; Bazzill orange card stock; Stampin' Up! whisper white card stock
stamp:  My Pink Stamper "Winter Treats & Sayings"
pearls:  Imaginisce i-rock
jumbo brads:  Bazzill
ribbon:  from Michael's

Happy Monday!

The news about your aunt's hubby must be devastating to the entire family. Times like these are when love and support mean so much. Your beautiful card is full of both, June. So rich and complex in color and design and love. xoxo
