CR84FN # 61 ~ My Heart is Always With You!

Our Monday brought a rainy gloomy day; how is your week starting? Rainy days are good stamping days for me. Just something cozy about being snuggled indoors hearing the light rain and having my craft goodies all around me. Max and I got our walks in despite the rain. He gets dried off on the front porch before going in then runs around the house like a crazy boy pouncing and barking ~ silly little pup!

I liked the heart locket in the inspiration photo and decided to incorporate hearts onto my card. With those cozy thought of home in mind I pulled out My PTI: love lives here set and set out to make a card for CR84FN. Aqua, tan and cream is a pretty color combination. I chose to use a couple of shades of aqua with My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon papers paired with a touch a PTI felt. My flowers and scalloped border die cuts are PTI and the label framing my house are Spellbinders #10. I just love this label set. But you probably know that since I use it a lot!. I layered some aqua ribbon that came on a prize I won at my niece's shower along with a sweet tan gingham. The teeny heart trios and sentiment are from PTI.


I hope you week is starting off well, thanks for stopping by ~Lisa

I would LOVE a rainy day! It's been so dry here, and I adore the sound of rain on the roof. Cute, cute little Max. ;-)

And I love your beautiful card here. Great use of the colors, and I love those sweet ribbons! That Beautiful Bloom is one of my favorite flowers. I need to break out my Love Lives Here set...

I had to laugh at how Max acts when he comes in from the rain. That has to be a Schnauzer thing! Lol! Emmitt does the same thing whether it's rain or his bath time. Too cute!

Your card is adorable! Love the pretty color combo and that layered flower accent. You always add the cutest details, too. Love it! :)
