Are you in LOVE yet?????

It was so super fun looking at all the Hanna Stamps Design team blogs yesterday, but I have to say that my absolute favorite card that I saw was Sherry's. It seriously made me laugh out loud. Click HERE to see it!

On to todays fun card -- As per yesterdays confession, I did a wee bit of stitching on this card too! The colors for this card came from the polka dots on the background paper. I cannot remember the last time I used going grey as a base for my card, and I really like it! Hanna is colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I added a little bling (swarovski crystal) at the neckline of her dress because she is that kind of a gal! He handbag was colored with pink first and then I put a layer of magenta colored stickles over it.
I used my target $1 spot heart punch (I think I picked that up last year around Valentines day) and then I had some fun heart shaped brads from making memories and I put them over the punched hearts. The lips are stamped by me in pixie pink, pink passion, purely pomegranate, going grey and staz on black (I know it looks like matching designer paper *giggles* JK). Sentiment is from the Valentines Day Hanna set and is SO TRUE!!!! Ribbons are from my collection and I believe both of them came from Hobby Lobby. Hope you like todays card! Check back tomorrow for more Hanna! Only 3 more days until you can buy this baby . . .

Very cute Amanda and I love how even and perfect your stitching is. When I tried it, it zig zagged all over the place. In the trash it went.
