Simplicity Sister - Doing what I love!

I really love stretching a dollar! I love shopping at garage sales and finding coupons to my favorite stores in my e-mail : )  I guess that is why I enjoy all the ways you can use Penny Black dies.

For my card today I started by embossing with my die rather than cutting with it.  I experimented with just the right "sandwich" for my Big Shot so that I can use my dies to emboss.  Can you see the little hearts suspended from the top of my card?  It would be great just like this but then I cut the same die on a piece of copy paper to create a stencil.  I lay my stencil directly to the card face and lightly sponged the hearts in place.   : )

I hope that you are getting to do what you love today as well!! and just for a bonus I pray God's Love is falling from the sky to bless you!! : )

A word to the wise....

Don’t ever run with bagpipes… you could poke and eye out or worse yet you could get kilt!

BIG (((HUGS)))

Such a great effect with using the die to emboss on that ever so cute image and those falling hearts. So sweetly coloured and to use the die cut heart as a stencil to colour the hearts is so is your card x Gardening, which is overdue is what I am doing today and it is what I enjoy and love, although I suspect I shall be taking a little medication when I get in for my weary bones!!! LOL x

I love your card and the unique way you used that die. It is so pretty. And I got a chuckle too. I won’t run with the bagpipes.

She is darling, Patti, but those hearts really add something special to the card.

Ah, how sweet those hearts are falling around your little gal! Really adds a special softness to the design and so cleverly done! Keep those jokes coming because we all need bits of cheer. Have a wonderful Memorial weekend!
