Hello Darling

Welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Be sure to stop by all 10 of the team's blogs so you don't miss out on any of the crafty goodness!

My week has been super crazy, I'm still not sure how I survived! But, I did manage to get a card made for tonight's hop. . . It is also Nate and my 14 year wedding anniversary! Perhaps I should have made him a card. . . I really should have thought this out. . . Oh well. On to tonight's creation!

I used the Hello Darling stamp set. Super cute set, endless possibilities! I chose to use my Crushed Curry embossing powder to heat emboss a subtle floral background. Then I sponged around the edge to add some definition. I added some "junk"(i.e. embellishments) and stitching.

Now I just need to get my convention swaps done. . . HAHAHAHAHA! Yes, I am that behind!

Let's move on and visit Cathy In The Cat Cave! I'm sure she's been up to something fun!
