Two Hearts

Happy New Year!!  Where did the year go so quickly?  I can't believe we are into 2012 already!

To start the year off, I have a card for the CAS-ual Friday's new challenge to use kraft and twine on a project. 

I knew that this was a challenge that I had to play along with!  You know how much I love twine and I use kraft quite a lot too!

I adore this tree stamp from the PTI Love & Marriage set.  I stamped the tree on Aqua Mist cardstock using Hawaiian Shores ink.  I am so happy that PTI finally came out with a good Hawaiian Shores ink! I  love it...not too fond of the ink pad design but LOVE the color it stamps!

The woodgrain heart on the tree was an idea that I got from Lisa's release post here.  I loved how it looked and knew I wanted to replicate that heart soon.  I used a Verve heart die and then stamped on the heart with a woodgrain stamp in white ink. 

The wording in the picture doesn't look like it matches up, but that is just because of the angle that I took the picture from. It looks perfect in real life. 

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you all will have a great New Year!!
