Love You To My Core

A super quick post so that I can tackle my ever growing To Do List!  Here is a card I made a little while ago but had not posted, using the Falling For You set from Paper Smooches.


I used patterned papers from Sweet Thread by Basic Grey, I think they are so pretty.  The apple is stamped and paper pieced.  I then stamped the inside part of the apple again on different patterned paper and slid it through a slit that I created in the first apple.  So now the little hearts are pouring out of the apple! 

The frame is paper pieced using a Lawn Fawn set called Say Cheese.

I just got back from the gym with Lisa and we were so "not motivated" today, but, we did it.  I guess we all have those days!

I should be linking you to some happy news but I see the post has not gone live yet, and I was sworn to secrecy, so, I guess you'll find out before I get to send you there.  All I can say is that I was very touched that I was thought of!

Have a fabulous day!
