Hello Sweetheart ;)

Happy Saturday, friends!!

So it seems super cah-razy to me that we just finished celebrating Christmas and New Year's and yet all of the stores have all their Valentine's Day stuff up.  Seriously, I haven't even taken my tree down yet!!

But with all the hearts and cupids out there screaming at me,  I got a jump on Love Day, and created a card using the current All That Scraps challenge colors (red, pink and chocolate) and the current Mojo Monday sketch.  Here is Mojo's sketch *you can go with either round or square, and of course, I went with the square*:

For today's card, I used the CC Designs Swiss Pixie Violet with Key stamp and colored her in Copics.  The papers are from the new Recollections 6x6 pad called With Love.  I can already tell this is going to be a fave of mine!  The red glittered cs is from Martha Stewart.  I used MFT ribbon in Bubblegum and some red/white twine from American Crafts.  There is an adorable key charm to match the key she is holding that I got from my dear friend, Gina.  The Love and Hello Sweetheart stamp were stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Unfortunately, I've had those stamps since I started stamping and have lost the packaging, so I can't remember for the life of me who the stamps are from!  There is a heart pearl in the corner that I've had in my stash for a long time as well.

Keeping with my New Year's crafty resolution, I managed to finish up the inside with the scraps from the front.  Maybe I shouldn't have stamped the stamp in the corner since now there is a line between the top half of the heart? Oh well, ya craft and learn:

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by to take a peek :)
