Sending Hugs

If you're here to see my Hero Hostess Blog Hop post, please click HERE.

I'm going to be out of the loop for the next couple of days into early next week, so I thought I'd leave you with a card that reflects the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday (my favorite all year).  This was made for the current Hero Arts monthly challenge, using the colors that were suggested  and some of the new 2012 stamps.  I'm thrilled with all of the new hearts and related sentiments we got this year!

BIG hugs

supplies: white and kraft card stock, Hero Arts CL586 XO, CG426 Four Hearts, LL538 Tub of Hearts (now discontinued), pink, red, lavender and brown inks and tea dye distress ink to age the white cardstock, natural twine, and heart charm
