If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.   If you came from Jennifer's 4 Hearts Scrapbooking Blog then you are in the right place!

It's 1am and I've just got everything finished up for this hop.  My life has been turned upside down, inside out for the last 2 and 1/2 half months.  First I've moved, but the remodel wasn't done, that left me bed hopping for 7 weeks while I waited.  The next issue was the carpet didn't seem to be anywhere in the Eastern US, so I waited 3 weeks for that! Grr...right after the carpet was installed, I was waiting for my new Sleep number to arrive, which I'd already rescheduled due to the carpet issues.  It arrived 4 days before Christmas, oh and that was interesting to say the least we had a house full.

My craft items are in boxes, I have no idea where my items are it takes me a long time to dig around to find what I need.  This is why I'm finishing at 1am...I went to Ikea today!  The Ikea is an hour and half away.  Spent 450.00 on Expedits, table tops, TV stand, wire, art you get the idea.  So hit home around 8pm, unloaded, veg'd in front of theTV and shot up at 10:30ish with an oh drat!!!  I need to make a card for the blog hop. 

At this point my brain is done...old I looked at the Smitten card that the artists at Close to My Heart created and decided I'm making one of those AND here is my version of that card.

Even though I followed the idea of the Close to My Heart artist I made this card my own.  It's similar, but at times it's to hard to think up an original idea and truthfully we don't need to reinvent the wheel every time we sit down  to craft. 

Supplies used:

Colonial White card base
Cranberry cardstock
Clementine paper pack
Champagne exclusive ink
Saddle exclusive ink
Sorbet exclusive ink
Antiqued Gold Mini-Medley Collection
Color Ready Garden Wood Shapes
Mocha Opaques
S1301 January Stamp of the Month Happy Valentine's Day
