Hugs and Kisses Card

Here in Missouri on Tuesday we had about 10 - 12 inches of snow with 3 foot drifts my hubby had to clear from our long driveway. I'm thankful that we have a tractor in our barn.  He also cleared our neighbor's drive and our country road. The next day he woke up extra early to start the process again since it had snowed most of the night, with blowing and drifting. To his surprise, the neighbor had come over early with his tractor and cleared our drive so my hubby could make it to work. I'm thankful for good neighbors and glad we can give and share the blessings. Our homes aren't close together in the country, but our hearts are. Love takes many forms.

Today it was sunny enough to take photos of cards, with temperatures hovering around 0 F or below. I made quite a few during the storm. Here's one I wanted to share. It uses this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I combined it with the color challenge from Color Throwdown #278. I thought these papers from a Martha Stewart valentines paper pack fit the color challenge perfectly.

 I used a former stamp of the month from CTMH for the sentiment. The kraft cs is embossed with Tiny Hearts from The Paper Studio. Here's the color palette from this week's Color Throwdown and the Mojo Monday sketch:

The hearts are cut out of one of the shiny metallic foil decorated papers in the set. Here's a close-up.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will find wonderful ways to share love with your family, friends, and neighbors. May God bless you with many expressions of love from others!

What i do not realize is in truth how you're now
not really much more neatly-favored than you might be now.
You're so intelligent. You know thus significantly in the case of this subject, made me
in my opinion believe it from so many various angles.

Its like women and men don't seem to be involved unless
it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent.
At all times take care of it up!
