Heartfelt Wednesday...

Hey stampin' friends, I'm back to share my Heartfelt Creations creations (hee hee) with you today.  This week, I'm catching up with my lost post from last week so I've got TWO cards to share with you.  You see, last week was just JAM PACKED with school conferences, preparing for them, planning after them, having meetings, and also a visit to the hospital as my father went through a heart procedure.  All is good now, so I hope I am back on track for good...I'm pooped though! 
My first card is probably one of my most favorite this year.  I just love the color combo, the texture and the collage stamping.  I also LOVE the dove image...It's going to be very popular on my Christmas cards! 
So here's a closer look at the texture created on the ornament stamp.  I used some gold Liquid Pearls to create the look. 
 Take a look at the yummy ribbon...I got it a while back and was hoarding it because I LOVE how it feels...It's by May Arts and it's a suede type of ribbon...Just deelish!
