Hi, everyone!

Now that it's 2017... and my 2016 New Year's Resolution is OVER, the boxes are coming, the boxes are coming, THE BOXES ARE COMING!!!

MFT came last week, Paper Smooches came today, and Stampin' Up! is on its way! Can you tell I'm doing a happy dance?!

Today, I'm sharing one of the cards I've made playing with those oh-so-nice MFT Pierced Heart STAX dies that arrived last week.  :)

Strathmore watercolor paper; Recollections black
MFT Window Staz dies
fired brick, mustard seed, and peacock feathers Distress Inks, applied with Ranger blending tool
black soot, applied with SU sponge dauber
SU good greetings sentiment in StazOn jet black

I'm going to share this 4.25" by 4.25" card over at Simon Says Be Square and Simon Says New Something Challenges.  :)

Parting Thoughts

The Love/Valentine deadline for SAS4Kids is fast approaching. So, those heart dies arrived at a perfect time.

A new Words 2 Craft By Challenge starts Wednesday. Hope to see you over at W2CB.

Thing that's it for now. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
