I "Heart" Weekends

Happy Saturday!!  Let me begin by saying that I love weekends (I know, who doesn't). I work in the dental field, which means I spend my days catering to unhappy people, because let's face it, who's happy going to the dentist?! And I will admit, it doesn't make me happy either:).  So, when Friday rolls around, I get super excited...and relaxed! I never do any crafting during the week so I spend HOURS in my craft room on the weekends..my happy place.
I usually scan Pinterest and various blogs for some inspiration, make my coffee and dive in! (Some days I remain in my pjs, just sayin').  So here's a few cards I made, so far, this weekend.

Here's one I'm entering in the Color and Sketch Challenge #11 over at www.yournextstamp.com. You can do the sketch, the Color or combine both. I went with the sketch.
 


I chose circles and hearts as my shapes of choice(the sketch had stars). The circles are from MFT Stitched Circles and the hearts are from Your Next Stamp Thanks a Latte die set. The sentiment on the middle circle is from Kup Toppers, also from YourNextStamp. I added clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the hearts. The banners are cut with Paper Smooches Flag Tags dies out of scrap papers. The background paper is from My Minds Eye. Finished off with some clear bubble-type accents from Robins Nest(I think).

Apart from that card, I've been kind of loving the Aqua, pink, yellow and grey Color combo. As, you'll see in these two card...





The first one's focal point is the "Big Hello" die from www.simonsaysstamp.com. I used the stitched journaling card from Lawn Fawn, the circle cover plate from Papertrey Ink, and that AWESOME stitched Daisy?!  Well, that's from www.my-creative-time.com! I stumbled upon this website by accident one day, what a lucky accident! I love her stuff(Emma is her name). She has the most adorable stitched dies!
The second card also features that same Daisy die as well as the sentiment from MyCreativeTime. I used the Triangle border die from SimonSaysStamp to add a little something extra. Both cards were finished off using some random Colored pearls.

I hope you enjoyed, thanks for visiting and have a Happy Easter!!
