So Sweet

Yippee it's Saturday! Not that it matters much to me anymore since I don't have a job! Wahhh! And there is still a couple of feet of snow on the ground so I can't go anywhere anyway! On the bright side it is the perfect time to ink up some of the stamps that I ordered last summer!!!! Please tell me I am not the only one who does that! I have 4 brand new sets of stamps from MFT that have never seen ink!
I started this card a couple of days ago, and just could not get it to come together the way I wanted.  I hate it when that happens.  So I decided to give up and just let it go, although I still think it needs something???
I used Tracy's adorable sketch you can see below.  Be sure to go by and give her some love! She makes the CUTEST cards I have ever seen.  Click on her blog {HERE}

I also decided to heat emboss my image after seeing the challenge at Phindy's Place is to use embossing this week.  I really like how easy it makes staying in the lines when you are coloring...I will have to start doing this more often! Although it had been so long since I had done this my embossing pad was almost dried out, I will have to get a refill.  Plus it is sooo messy, or maybe I am just messy.
Isn't she just adorable though? I love these Pure Innocence stamps from MFT, and they are super affordable! This set also has a sentiment that says "Make mine a double"  which is the name of it.  You can see more of theses cuties at My Favorite Things {{{HERE}}}.   The inside sentiment is also MFT and it is from the set "Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays".  The little heart and ice cream inside are from  a set called "Sweet On You" from the Craft Lounge that you can see [[HERE]] if it is still available I got this set last Feb. and am just using it too! It is hard to see but there is sponging around the image and sentiment, I used Color Box chalk ink in eggshell for that.  The dt is Cosmo Cricket. Everything else is CTMH and you can get it {{HERE}}.
I hope you have a really sweet day and thank you for stopping by!
Warm Hugs,

So cute, the inside is beautiful as well as the outside! And you're not the only one, I'm very messy when I emboss too, lol. Thanks for playing along at Phindy's Place this week.

Hi there. Your layout works really well with your chosen image and I love the extra detail and trouble you have gone to for the inside of the card as well. Thanks for joining us this week at Phindy's Place.
