I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Hearts, Hearts, Hearts

We are still on our 10 week vacation  to Arizona.  Having a wonderful time but I am missing my craft room.  I have supplies hidden all over the trailer.   I am managing to get some cards made in the evenings but it takes some planning and a very sweet patient hubby.

This week at Come and Get it Challenges it is my turn to chose the challenge and I chose hearts of course since we are so close to Valentine's day.  
I made this card for my grandson, River for Valentines day.   

I used a glitter paper that already had the hearts cut into it and layered it over red card stock.  The sock monkey rubber stamp was from my collection of unmounted stamps  I coloured him with my Copic Markers and mounted him on some white glitter paper.  I added Diamond Glaze to my heart balloons along with some glitter for more sparkle.  I hope he likes my card. 

Come join us at Come and Get It this week and show us your heart.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
