I Believe In You!

It's WEDNESDAY and that means another fun jump over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the fabulous cards and projects we designers for Heartfelt Creations are presenting to you.  I wanted to tell you a little back story about how this card came about...

I was wandering the aisles of my local Joanne's one SNOWY day off from school and happened upon a new collection of house decorations.  GORGEOUS tins of all sizes and colors, twisted jute bags and beautiful ironwork wallhangings.. My eyes were immediately drawn to the beautiful "faux oxidized" tins with their lovely shades of green...Oh wow!  I wanted to take all of them home.....sssskrrreeech...THUMP...reality hit in....I HAVE NO ROOM FOR ANY MORE STUFF IN MY HOUSE!!!  So, I checked their prices anyway...Too much right now, and I put them back on the shelf.  Someday I might pick some up, but right then, I walked away. 

That evening, I sat down at my crafting table and pulled out this stamp set.  It's called Posy Patch Garden Delights.  I also used the coordinating set called Posy Patch Swirls.  The sentiment and background stamping were made with this set.  That watering can reminded me of those tins at Joanne's so I immediately inked up the stamp and started to find colors that reflected their weathered charm.  I think I captured it as best I could on paper... but maybe I need to head back to Joanne's to see for sure???LOL

So there it is, let me know what you think...I just love the little violets...so pretty, so fun!   If you'd like a PDF version of the directions (and Copic Colors listed) for this card, please email me and I'd be happy to share.
