LIM36 - One Layer with Heart(s)

I'm a little late with my card this week.  I've spent the last 4 days sitting at the hospital with my hubby. He's home now and on the mend.  I am thankful!

Our Less is More challenge this week is to create a one layer card with hearts on it.  Sounds simple...right?  Well, it took me a bit, but I finally remembered that I had a stamp perfect for this challenge.


All image stamps are from PTI.  The large bow and the jar base are from Friendship Jar Summer Fillers, the Hearts are from the Friendship Jar Spring Fillers collection.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts, and the pink gingham is from PTI.  I stamped the big bow, masked it off, stamped the jar under it, then added the hearts. the "xoxo" is another PTI stamp that I stamped each heart with.  Instead of putting a lid on the jar, I drew a little gathered top to look like the hearts are in a bag and tied up with a bow.  Then I colored it all with Copics.  Fairly quick and easy card once I figured out what I was going to do.  I wasn't going to add the gingham at first, but then the jar looked like it was floating on the card...and you know how I am about "grounding" an image! LOL!

Thought I'd also share a new layout that I finished last weekend.  This is photos of our little granddaughter, Helen Grace.


I used Echo Park papers for this and a SU graduation hat stamp.  The large arrow was hand cut and backed with a solid color.  The precious girl tag is a sticker from EP.  The Girly You Rock tag was made by stamping with a PTI sentiment, punching and circle, then punching 2 larger scalloped edged circles to back it. I'm telling you...these kids grow up FAST!

Tomorrow, I'll be at the hospital again...only this time it will be to welcome our newest grandson, Pierce.  He's scheduled to arrive around 1 pm on October 10.  Can't wait!  Now I'll have even more pictures to scrap! LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate all of your wonderful comments! I understand that some people have been having difficulty leaving a comment, so I changed my comment box to a pop up box.  I've been told that helps...so maybe it will.  Until next time....

♥ Hugs! ♥

It seems a little odd on this side of the pond to see tinies graduate... the only graduations here are from university!... Having said that my son graduated 3 times... he has 3 degrees!
Your card is super... such a fun image!
Thanks so much Bonnie

Hi Susan! I hope your husband is feeling better with each day. I really love your LIM card. I have always been tempted to get the jar and fillers. You did a beautiful job with the images. The gingham is the perfect touch! Your layout is wonderful too. Your grand daughter looks like such a sweetie. What a lovely way to look back on this special time for her!
