I {heart} You

Hey there!

Things are moving out fast over at i {heart} papers, so if you see anything you like, now is the time to pick it up.  If you haven't heard the news, the store is closing its doors, and must liquidate all merchandise.  I created a card to share how I feel about this store, this hobby...a bit sappy, but then I feel like I am losing a friend right now.

I pulled out the adorable Smoocheroos set from Paper Smooches.  The last time I checked, there was only one left.  Of course, there are still quite a few really fun stamp sets, and patterned papers in the store.  Back to my card, I stamped each balloon, and colored them in with Copic Markers.  I then trimmed them out, and adhered them to my shaker window, that I created with Avery Elle's Finished Frames Elle-ments die, foam, and some acetate.

The shaker is filled with micro beads, and a variety of sequins.  I used a bit of embroidery floss to create balloon strings, and tied a bow at the end.  I added a bit of highlight to each balloon with a white gel pen.

Remember to take advantage of the discount of 30% by entering code BYEIHP at checkout.  Thanks ever so much for coming by today.  I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.

I almost forgot to announce the winner of my giveaway!  Gina, you were selected by, and I have contacted you.  Thanks sooo much to everyone who left me comments about your craft room,  I am hoping to get around to visiting you, if I haven't already.

I love your set-up! I am currently working on the DH to get him to set me set up space in the corner of our family room - he's been resistant but maybe if I show him pictures of how you're making it work in your dining room he will reconsider! :) I have been blogging since October 2004!! I haven't been blogging much in the past eighteen month - lots going on in my life that made me put it on the back burner. My blog is mainly a place to keep track of what is going on with my kids - for family out of state.
