Bless Your Little Heart

I have been trying really hard to pull out and use some of my older stamps and supplies.  It feels good to use some of my older things because it helps me feel like I'm not wasting them.  When they just sit there, or I try to hang on to them forever, there's just no point and then I feel guilty when I buy new things.  So, this card really uses up some older supplies that have been neglected for far too long.
I used two different pieces from a Crafty Secrets Vintage Cuts sheet, some pretty seam binding, a little kraft polka dot envelope, and a super old sentiment stamp.  I inked the little sentiment strip, too.  I've found a few challenges where I'd like to share my card:

Heartwarming Vintage/Crafty Secrets Blog - August Linky Party - I love my Crafty Secrets Vintage Cuts, and it felt good to use up some of my supplies

CropStop Linky Party #7 - Anything Goes - I used Tim Holtz Ink on my card (found at CropStop)

DLART August Linky Party - Anything Goes

Word Art Wednesdays Challenge Blog - Anything Goes/Family Friendly

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Home Grown Summer - Aren't these flowers lovely?  Living in Minnesota, we have LOTS of wild flowers along the side of the roads, and I enjoy picking them to create a bouquet.  This card really gives that wild flower feel that I love - even though they are just pink roses.

Little Scrap Pieces - Saturday Linky Party

CAS-ual Chic - CCC02 - Udderly Lovely Layers - I used my first layer (kraft card), a second layer (Crafty Secrets image) and third layer (kraft polka dot envelope) with a stamped sentiment (bless your little heart).

It's always nice to have visitors on my blog.  I hope you will follow me, and I will be sure to also follow you on your blog.

  10. This is great. Love the embellishments! I'm so happy you joined our Challenge last week and would like to invite you to join us again with our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. Just want to share God's Word to you coming from 1 Peter 1:24-25 which says, "For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you."

    Have a blessed day!
