Hello friends!

I got some crafty time with my girlfriends yesterday and got a chance to play with some of my Paper Smooches goodies.

This card uses the Sweet Hearts set which was the Thanks A Million set for December.

Paper Smooches XO card

I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut XO from a piece of cardstock.  I lightly traced the letters onto my cardstock and filled in the shapes with various sized hearts. I adore this set for the variety of sizes and shapes.  Plus some of the hearts nest inside other hearts which is super fun!  I used ink from Hero Arts (Pale Tomato, Fresh Peach, Bubblegum, Forever Green, and  Field Green).

Once I filled in the shapes, I erased my pencil lines and rounded the edges of the stamped panel.  I then adhered the panel to a Berry Sorbet card base. 

I am sharing this card with this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge- this week's theme is Anything Goes and I LOVE seeing what the players dream up using their Paper Smooches stamps!   You have until January 25th to enter. 

I am also going to link this project up to the Paper Smooches Feburary Guest Designer search.  Please wish me luck! The competition is fierce! So many talented stampers love their Paper Smooches just as much as I do! :)   The deadline for the February Guest Designer search is January 22nd. 

Well that's all for me today!  I hope you are having a great weekend!
