Snowflakes and Hearts

Dearie Dolls images are what moved me from stamping images to printing them off on my computer. These days I use wood mounted stamps, clear stamps and especially digis (which are so much easier to store!) I love this sweet Dearie Dolls image, that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen

Worked on this card while my DH and I watched a movie. Because... well... I can NEVER just sit and watch TV! The image is fromLittle Scraps of Heaven blog-
(They have a ton of wonderful images. Some free, some for sale, but VERY reasonably priced. And if you like paper piecing they work perfectly for that. This is a new image to me.)  I traced the jar onto a scrap of acetate and paper pieced the fabric topper and ribbon. The candy hearts are dimensional stickers from Jolee's Boutique I've had in my stash for some time. Might need to see if I can find more of them! I also provided a close up of the image so that you could see the acetate and candy hearts. I adhered the acetate to the card by taping it to the inside of the topper and then adhered that to the card with double-stick tape. The bottom of the jar is held in place with a few of the candy heart stickers appropriately placed.

For my card, I used an image and sentiment (inside of the card) from Tiddly Inks. You can find it here I did add the first sentiment "Kiss me. All your friends with be green with envy." inside of my card. I blinged up the card a bit with a gem on his crown and a smattering of purple rhinestones.The red lips are from my hair stylists business card. (I might have to give the card to her to share with her hubby. I think it will make them smile... which is its purpose!)
