Into the Woods challenge

  "Into the woods" is the current fortnightly challenge at Little Tangles.  I found this was the perfect excuse to purchase some Studio Calico wood veneer for my craft stash.  I used two of the stamps from the Neat and Tangled "Just Thinking of You" set:
  Super cute little set, right?  The conversation bubble could be used for a cloud.  I stamped the solid heart three times in white pigment ink and heat embossed and the sentiment is stamped in chocolate chip ink. The hearts are fussy cut from Jillibean Soup "Hearty Barley."  I added faux stitching with real red ink.

  I am so tickled to be home and back in my craft room!  The summer is flying by.  We have been very fortunate to be taking so many family vacations.  We've been to Hershey Park, Lancaster PA, Ocean Isle Beach NC, and in August we will travel to Smith Mountain Lake VA, Ocean City MD, and Salt Lake City UT.  I have to admit that I have enjoyed being away from the internet for the weeks that we have been away :)  But now I am happy to be catching up on mail, email, and laundry...maybe I will even clean the house, but I'd rather craft!

  I hope you will join in on the fun at Little Tangles "Into the Woods" challenge.  Hop over to Little Tangles and see what my DT sisters have for inspiration.  Interpret the challenge however you like!  You do not need to have wood veneer; but if you need an excuse to buy some I am here to enable you :)

Happy Thursday!

GORGEOUS card June! The little hearts between the pattern hearts are simply adorable! I love the whimsical feel of the sentiment font! So fun!
So glad your enjoying your summer! I am missing our trips this summer as we are so busy with other things right now. We do have one planned in the fall once things SLOW down a bit! It's crazy how we try to cram so much in its even hard to enjoy:(
Take care and hope to see some pics of your trips!
Have a super day!

Gorgeous card, June - I love those varying shades of kraft/brown and the hearts are cute. Glad you're having such a lovely summer, we're not going away, but the weather is so beautiful - there's no need to!
