"Best Wishes"

Hi! A bit late today...had nett problems. Better late than never.

Here is something that matches my eyes today!
I have blue eyes....but this week they are turning GREEN! Why, you may ask?
I'm not at the CHA....and a few lucky design team members are! 
You Gals have fun. I truly mean it. Really, I do.
The real sad news is....wait for it....I will be in the area a week after the event! 
Now, that is real sad. 
Life happens....but I won the second prize and that is........ a cruise with my DH ......19th Jan till 2nd Feb. Back home on the 17th. Never been to the US of A before, so this will be one for the scrapbooks. LOL.
The only down side is, I will be posting but it will be kept sort. I am sure you will understand. LOL. 
You want to have a laugh? Picture this.....
my suit case is in my workroom packed but still open  waiting to be weighed. I am doing some last minute creating. I know, can't help myself, I am now sorted for the after 5's for the Captains the glimmer and glitter sorted. It's every where! And I'm not cleaning it out! LOL.

This card size is 13.4 cm x 13.4 cm. Cut 27 cm x 13.4 cm piece from white cardstock for the card base. Fold in half and use the bone folder to sharpen the fold. For the card front, find the paper with the white broken hearts and green background from the paper pad. Cut this to 13.8 cm x 13.8 cm. 

To make a heart shaped whole in the center of the card. Take the HCD728 heart shape die and align in the center of the card base front, secure the die with post it notes, die cut. Put aside. Using the same heart die cut 3 times extra the shape out from white cardstock. Glue the 4 hearts together to make chipboard. Use the Brayer and paper towel to secure all is glued flat. The paper towel will ensure the glue does not get onto the Brayer. Adhere the Bridal Embossing Powder to the chipboard with the Essential Glue Pad. Put aside. 

Taking the Stamp Positioner Kit, jet black ink and the best wishes stamp image, stamp on the inside of the card so it shows through the heart shaped whole when the card is standing. 

Taking the card front paper, center the heart die, trace around it with a pencil, cut this out. Ravel and fray the out side edges of the paper with the distressing tool. To place the ribbon across the front of the card: Start from the heart opening, adhere the ribbon ends to the back side of the paper then take the ribbon across to the paper edge, adhere. Repeat for the other side keeping the ribbon line straight. Adhere the card front to the card base with double dots. Adhere the heart chipboard with glue in its place. Make two triple bows with the ribbon. Using glue dots attach a bow to each side of the heart on the ribbon line. Taking the Vellum Paper, Bleeding-hearts flower stamp and die, make enough for the raised flowers for the inside card best wishes sentiment. Add color to the flower shapes with the markers, then shape and ball with the balling tool and mat. Adhere in their place with the clear glue dots. Place a few pearls in the corners to finish a cute simple card.

Signing off to get that suit case closed. I have a week to do that. Boarding for a 11 hour flight on the 15th.
Stay tuned for next will be the second Wednesday of the month...believe me, it is a bomb shell of a release. I think so any way. Heartfelt have changed their packaging for the better, more value...and the stamps and will see next week. To die for!
Till then have a inky scrappy week.
