XOXO Heart Pin

I need to do a quick edit: Can you believe it?---I forgot to clap myself, my Mom came through to read my post and reminded me especially since this is for Stamping 411's sketch and guess what they picked me as one of 5 featured stampers on 12-11--I left them a thank you comment, but thanks again ladies. If the rest of you haven't been over to Stamping 411 you need to check them out, they've got neat sketches, instructions, tips, and lots of creative inspiration.

This card is quite different than what I started out to make. My friends were coming over Sat. to make Valentine cards for Cards For Heroes , but we've had plumbing problems, so our card making got cancelled, but my friend who lives closest surprised me anyway with an upside down apple pie and some more birthday gifts, getting old is not so bad, yet.
I just found the "Just Us Girls" challenge blog this week. They gave the instructions for the chalk board technique, that was new to me also, very easy, lots of possibilities, and the 2 hearts in the middle are that technique. I have to say it shows up better on darker card stock, but I couldn't resist trying it with the red and pink.
4 Challenges:
Supplies: Red Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: from my scrap box, Stamps: CTMH-D1245 In My Heart, Inkadinkado 97637 Hearts, Ink: CTMH-Z2116 Cranberry, Stampin Up-Whisper White, CraftsEtc-pony beads, Stampin Up-pretties kit, RibbonFX Hobby Lobby-ribbon, Cuttlebug-slider die, Cuttlebug embossing folder-Heart Blocks, chalks, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G
