I Heart You

You know what I love best about laptops?  I can be as miserable as can be and still be online doing my thing.  :-)   For some reason, I decided I needed to catch a very nasty, cough til your ribs hurt, cold.  Of course being out in a salvage yard with my youngest son in the snow and cold blowing wind didn't have any part of it, right?  Well, I'm on the mend and felt well enough to do a little stamping today.  Yay!  Especially, since I got a bunch of new stuff yesterday that I wanted to play with.  I can't wait to share it with you.

Today's card was made with a new stamp set from My Favorite Things.  It's called Heart Balloons and I love it!  It worked perfectly for the current challenge over at The Paper Players.  We had to create a single layer card with minimal embellishments, if any.  I love this clean and simple look!

Stamp Set:  Heart Balloons (My Favorite Things); Inks:  Crushed Curry, Raspberry Ripple, Bermuda Bay (Stampin' Up!), Tuxedo Black (Memento); Card Stock:  White (Bazzill)

I did add one rhinestone right where the balloon strings meet.  It added just a bit of sparkle to the card.

Be sure to check back tomorrow.  I am participating in the Wacky Watercooler Welcome to 2014 Blog Hop.  A bunch of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators will be showing off some of the new products from the Occasions Catalog, the Sale-A-Bration Brochure and the current Annual Catalog.  Prepare to be inspired!

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
