Hello? Hello? Is anyone there?

It was a nice relaxing weekend - I'm learning to enjoy them a bit more! :D I'm reading a great book; hanging with the girls while the boys are in Minnesota, the chance to create when I wanted with no deadlines. Ah....felt so good!


I found this sketch at Frosted Designs - looks like their last sketch but maybe some new and fun things up their sleeves?

Regardless, it was just the boost I needed to pull out my Heart to Heart mini stamp set from Papertreyink and have some fun.

The DP is from various MME pads (3 different pads); I sponged the layers with Wheat VersaMagic ink. I used PTI's telephone die cut from Kraft, also stamped in Kraft with PTI Hawaiian shores for the center. Added some DP and more Kraft on the inside - in fact, I think I used every single sentiment from the Heart to Heart mini stamp set - LOL; that would be a first for me!

I love the phone cord - isn't that cute? It was created with twine/floss which didn't hold for ANYTHING, so I had to get a bit creative - but it worked and I love it!

The handset doesn't have black ink on it, just part of the Kraft card stock variation...just fell in a bad spot. LOL

Super fun stamp set; can't wait to try a few more things with it.

TFL; have a great week!

Hugs,

Your card is so adorable! I just love the cute telephone image with the twine cord. Thank you for stopping to visit me. You asked if I like my Zutter Bind-it-All and I really do love it. I would use it more often if I had time, but work tends to get in the way of crafting :-)
