You are my heart!!


Oh how I love this sentiment and all of the fabulous sentiments in the January KOTM from Unity. I am hooked thanks to my friend Jessica. (thanks Jess!!). She has just done such wonderful things with the Unity stamps that I just could not resist signing up!!!

For todays card I started by stamping my sentiment onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock with memento tuxedo black and colored the heart with my copics. All my cardstock is SU and my dp is Basic Grey Sultry which I picked up at Michaels today, then I whipped out my sewing machine which I have not done in such a long time and sewed up my edges. The border punches I used are MS and Fiskars and I finished off with some sheer ribbon also from Michaels.

Thanks so much for taking a peek today. Hop on over to the Unity Blog to check out a list of Friends with Flair participants and you can hop around to find the hidden blinkie and win some awesome Unity stamps!!! Looks like Rachel is after me at http://mylifemylovesmypassions.blogspot.com/. Have a fantastic weekend. I will be celebrating my birthday tomorrow and I cant wait...my kids have a home cooked meal planned for me!!! How super sweet!!! Cant wait!!
