This card is the result of my coming across the package of Heartfelt die cuts that I had been ignoring for a few months. Although I had seen some cute cards and projects made by others using these cool felt dies, I was at a loss as to what I should do with them.
Stitching around the the outside and inside cutout of the heart took a while. It was kind of fun, too. Relaxing. At least until I finished sewing and then asked myself what the heck I should do with it. I didn’t fret too much though but rather added a few buttons and used Glue Dots to stick it on a piece of coordinating textured cardstock. It’s not my most favorite card, but at least, I’m not afraid of the felt anymore. LOL.

This one is quite a contrast from the top card, isn’t it? It’s also the one that got me out of bed the other night. The baby wipe technique again.

One more day, and it’s the weekend again. Yee haw! I’m looking forward to the privilege of simply staying home. My mom, four of my six siblings, a brother-in-law, my niece, and one of my nephews and his girlfriend all left for Las Vegas today for a few days. When the trip was planned, I was still in the wedding recovery mode… kind of a stupor. At the time, I couldn’t imagine thinking about one more thing, and so I declined. I think I still must be in a daze, because while I hope they all have fun (and I’m sure they will), I’m happy to be right where I am.
I hope you’ve had a great week. Thanks for stopping by! Your visits mean the world to me. And, with that, I’ll sign off until tomorrow when I’ll be back with a couple more cards! Later…
