Take It to Heart Meets Simply Sent

Yes, it is another bird card!  This is from “Take It to Heart,” a set from the Occasions mini catalog.  (I know, I know…this still isn’t a “last chance for Holiday mini catalog items!” post.)  We had our team meeting yesterday, with a “crafting day” before the meeting.  A few of us came early to work on some projects.  Liz did some amazing things with MDS downloads and the new framelits.  Sandy worked on Christmas cards.  And I ate cookies, so I didn’t get very much done.  I did manage to squeak out two cards – one for today and one for our blog hop in January.

I had a couple of the Sweet Moments Simply Sent cards left, so I threw them in my bag on the way out the door yesterday.  I thought the “hearts” framelits would be fun to use on this.  I heat embossed the bird image with black powder, then colored it with markers.  I added a tag, cut everything out with the framelits, sponged the edges and I was done!  This is a “trifold” card, so the bottom of the heart actually lifts up .  Then the Wisteria Wonder part of the card folds down, and you have a huge 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ writing area inside.  That’s wonderful for those of us who tend to be a little, um, chatty!  To hold this closed, I added a dot of 2-way glue behind the bottom of the heart and let it dry.  Now it’s “re-stickable.”  Of course, by the time I finish playing with it to be sure it’s still sticky, it won’t be, so I’ll have to add more.

I have an appointment with the eye doctor this afternoon.  I don’t know what he’s going to do, but it involves heavy duty drops.  He promised that I won’t be able to focus until sometime tomorrow.  That’s not good news at all, since I have an appointment for a haircut late tomorrow morning.  Oh, well…it’s not far, so if I can’t drive,  can always walk, right?  The exercise and fresh air will be good.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderfulday.
