I Have You In My Heart

Some pretty non-traditional colors in this card.
I was actually thinking this would be a great card for some friends whose Mom passed awhile ago.
 It's been awhile but I just learned of it recently and wanted to let my dear friends (Tim and Susan) know that I was thinking about them.





The layout was inspired by Cardabilities Design Team Reveal #66 @ http://cardabilities.blogspot.com/2012/12/design-team-reveal-66.html and
365 Cards - Day 4 - Color Scheme @ http://365cards.blogspot.com/2013/01/day-4-color-scheme.html.  

Because of the sentiment and the blue papers (which have been in my studio practically FOREVER) -
 Stamp N doodle's Something Neglected @ http://stamp-n-doodle.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/stamp-n-doodle-challenge-9th-january.html,
Cute Card Thursday's Challenge # @ http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/2013/01/challenge-251-beat-blues.html and
Stamping Dragon "Anything Goes" @

I had ALOT of difficulty cutting this stamp - it took just a few tries before I managed to get it right.


 Also because of the sentiment and all of the textured items on this card -
Clear It Out Challenge - Fuzzies and Textures Items @ http://clearitoutchallenge.blogspot.ca/2012/12/happy-new-year-2013.html




Because I added the new Liquid Pearls (Flamingo) I got a Christmas, I'm adding this card to
Jingle Belles - Look What Santa Brought Me @ http://jinglebellesrock.blogspot.com/2013/01/look-what-santa-brought-me.html and
 Incy Wincy - Something NEW @ http://incywincydesigns.blogspot.com/2013/01/happy-new-year-and-something-new.html


I don't have any paper doilies in my house, or a die cut for them, so I used a label cut from the Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge to make my own and will enter this in the Elphine House "Paper Doilies" challenge @ http://elphinehouse.blogspot.com/2013/01/eha-challenge-35-paper-doilies.html






I just found out that I won my first challenge!!! 
Thanks everyone at MFP Speedy TV - Sketch with a twist Challenge.
 I'm a happy little camper and can't wait to use my new
 Christmas Bridge Mini Stamp set. 
 Ya'll are great! 
My first BADGE!!  
YES!
