A new card - Finally!

This week has been a trying one, in terms of feeling bad, and taking my mother to dr's appointments. But I got the energy to do a little crafting, and here's the result - an anniversary card for my husband. It was our 5th last weekend (note the five hearts), but I was too sick to do any celebrating.

The layout of this card was inspired by Daniela Dobson's card, as published in Cards magazine, February 2007 issue, page 21. There's a photo of it here:

I had fun using my Fiskars scalloped heart-shaped punches and the coordinating stamps. Of course, I used my Fiskars Compact Stamp Press with my acrylic stamps.

It is a gloriously beautiful day here in Northern Virginia~ I hope you enjoy your day - and the card.
