Glittery Heart Flower

Hello!

Have ya seen the little stickers from Doodle Bug Design called, "Doodle Pops?" They are so colorful, so sweet and each one has glitter, which I love! The best part is, they only cost $1.49 each. The worst part is, I tend to buy lots of them at a time! I've given some away with my blog candy, and in my prize pack for the scramble I hosted a couple of weeks ago, but I also tend to hoard them. I've decided it's time I create a card using the adorable, glittery, heart flower.



I die cut the oval, and before removing the die, I shaded the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The wide, black ribbon was recycled from a gift I had received ages ago, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. It was fun creating a card with hardly any stamping and no coloring - quick and easy, and I can always use another thank you card.

So, the weather folks around here have been talking about this big winter storm heading toward Minnesota tomorrow and Wednesday. They first thought we were going to get totally dumped on, but it looks like most of the snow will fall to the north of the Twin Cities, thank goodness! It will still be scary driving the next couple of days because it's suppose to be a mix of snow, sleet, ice and even rain at times - what a strange winter we've had! We may even hear a clap of thunder sometime in the afternoon tomorrow, and then on Wednesday, it'll be turning back into snow again! Crazy weather! Anyway, I will be driving very carefully to work and back the next couple of days - wish me luck!

I know I always say this, but thank you for stopping by my blog! I really
DO appreciate it! :)

This is so sparkly and cute, Barb! I love how you inked the oval - lots of dimension. This pops against the black - great selection. I am a hoarder, too. Need to clean it all out. Be extra careful with that nasty weather, poor thing. I don't think I could ever live with snow again. Travel gently! Thanks for sharing.

Stay safe Barb! I hope you don't get more snow than the snow crews can clear quickly for you!

I love that sweet little heart flower! I can understand completely why you hoard them!

Hi Barb, new to your blog but just want to comment that I too live in MN (Lakeville). I don't have to work until Friday which means I get to stay off the streets until this system pasts. Drive safe. Until spring arrives.

Good luck with the weather Barb. I think Mother Nature is having a hissy fit lately. Our summer has been so wet again this year (not quiet as bad as last year though). I can't remember the last time the sun shone around here.

Your card is absolutely gorgeous! Those stickers look amazing. What a beautiful card xoxoxoxo
