Hugs and Kisses Mojo Monday Card

Now that it's January, we're having frigid weather with ice and snow on the way tonight. With everything gray outside, I love to work with bright, happy papers.  I think it's better to think of lovely things to make for friends than to focus on bad weather, a perfect example of Philippians 4:8: 
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
For the next couple of days I'll be posting cards and a layout I'm making using the new CTMH Heartstrings paper pack and the January Stamp of the Month, "This Moment." The red background is a 4" x 6" PML card from the Heartstrings set.  I love the color combo in this set.

The banners were cut from some of the Paper Fundamentals to add a little variety to these papers. The sketch is the tall and skinny sketch from MOJO Monday #378 this week:

I heat embossed the hugs and kisses sentiment from the Heartstrings Cardmaking workshop stamp set.  The Pixie colored extra thick twine is one of my new playthings.  I used the first column down in this Polka Doodles Challenge.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless your crafting with lovely thoughts and things to share that will bless others in turn!

I really love this card you could equally make it for a male just by changing the colours. Thank you so much for taking the time to join in our Tic, Tac, Toe challenge over at Polkadoodles.

This is so cute and wonderful design on the inside too. Thanks for blessing us with your artwork last week at Word Art Wednesday. There is still time to join us for our Challenge this week so, I hope you link more projects with us. Leaving you with God's Word in Hebrews 7:25 which says, "Therefore he (Jesus) is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them." God bless always!
