Love Always

A few nights ago I was scoping out blog challenges in bed.  My hubby has been sick and was in and out of conversation.  At one point he looked up and said "Nice card!" while looking at the swatch for the Color Throwdown challenge this week.  My response was "It's a door!" because I couldn't believe what he had just said.  Once he looked closer, he saw the door.  It was soooooo funny.  Now, anytime he sees a nice card he says "Nice door!"

I have a habit of only using the same stamps from each stamp set that I purchase.  Today I wanted to use stamps that I had never used before. I stamped the love and always stamps from the Affection Collection set.  Of course, my always sentiment left a blemish so I punched out a hear from the Owl Punch to cover it up.  I used the heart from the Best of Love stamp set.  I stamped the image with Pink Pirouette ink on Pink Pirouette cardstock but you could hardly see the image so I re-inked in Riding Hood Red.  You could definitely see that better.  After I cut out the red heart I decided to cut out the pink heart as well, it seemed a shame to let it go to waste.  Of course, it was missing the bottom half of the heart because I was using the same piece of paper for both hearts.  I was able to cover it up and I think it looks okay.
