"The heart has its Reasons..."

Happy Monday Crafty Friends!

How was your weekend?  Did you get crafty?  I was able to squeeze in some crafty time but my craft time is spreading into several rooms in our home.  My current crafty space is bursting at the seams and it has very limited work space.  I am "patiently" waiting for the new window to be completed in my new crafty space so that I can finally move into it.  The room is a little bigger and it has a cool storage nook in the wall...that I intend to fill with supplies!  Oh- how I yearn to be in the new room.  But, until then I will be a nomad crafter and go to alternate work spaces in our home.  :)

The card I am sharing today looks similar to a card I posted a couple of weeks ago for Scrapy Land.  I had bits of Graphic 45 Mon Amour paper left over and decided to make another card with the same background.  This one used different dies and a different Quietfire Design stamped sentiment, "The heart has its Reasons":
The Heart has its Reasons - Mounted
It was heat embossed onto white vellum paper.  The heart was stamped onto scrap paper and fussy cut.  The gold die cut is Spellbinders Lacey Hearts and the lovely doily die is Cheery Lynn's French Pastry.
Some wee black gems were added and the card was complete:
Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo

We are so blessed you joined our Challenge weeks ago and would love for you to join our new Challenge still ongoing at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 which says, "But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. " Have a lovely week.
