A little Simon Says Love....

Happy New Year to all my crafty friends!  It has been a little quiet around here due to the craziness of the holidays.....that and a lack of mojo.  Like seriously in a rut.  A big one.

I got in to my craft room, cleaned it really good.  So good that I have Priority Mail boxes FULL of crafty stuff to sell.  If you are interested in those, click HERE.  I have several boxes left and they are ready to go to a good home.

After all the cleaning and purging, I went to my box of "stuff to use" that I hadn't opened yet and I found this ADORABLE die from Simon Says Stamp.  It's called Clipping Heart and I love it.  Seriously.  It's like a bonus die.  Why, you ask?  Well, you get this amazing outline and then look at all those hearts!!  It's a 2-fer.  :)

Here is the card I whipped up for today.....


I did a simple watercolor wash in the background and then added the "i love you" from WPlus9's Bubble Talk.  I added in the Clipping Heart after stacking 4 of them together.  Then I ran one through with the sliver glitter paper and added in the hearts.  So easy and so much fun!


I am so happy that my crafty mojo is back.  Stay tuned for a couple new releases coming your way from MFT and Papertrey Ink!

Hope you are having a great week!
