Something to Smile About!

 I am participating in the Heart 2 Heart challenge again this week.  That in itself is something to smile about,but my entry is even more reason.  I am plugging along with my 2019 vacation scrapbook and decided to create a layout to submit to this challenge. There is not much that can make me smile more than a European vacation, art and beautiful music.  I hit the jackpot here in Kovacica, Serbia!

Everything here is Close to My Heart.  The design credit goes to Allison Davis.  I will say that the piecing, stamping, and just trying to figure out my embellishments made this a time consuming project, but I think it was worth it!

Talk with you soon...Sue

Shades of Gray!

 I decided to create for the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge this week. The assignment was to use shades of gray and two other colors.  I chose Close to My Heart inks in Charcoal, Sapphire and Candy Apple Red. The cardstock is Charcoal, Candy Apple Red and White Daisy.  The background was done with a layering stencil from Taylored Expressions and car and sentiment are from a retired CTMH set called Cruisin' to Adventure. Here is my card:  

This was a fun card to make...I really like creating plaids with this stencil set.  For more inspiration, please visit Color my Heart Color Dare and Double Trouble Challenge

Hope you are enjoying your summer and are staying safe!
