Heart 2 Heart Challenge #3

I've already completed my entry for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week!!!  Woohoo for me!!  Well, I guess it isn't that impressive, considering I am home sick from work with no kiddo....if only I had every day off from work and my little busy bee....oh, the things I could accomplish! ;O)

This week's challenge was a sketch which is my favorite type of challenge.  They gave us a great sketch that was a good place to start, but then left a lot for your own interpretation.  I love it!

The only items used for my card that weren't from CTMH were the ribbon and buttons (their from JoAnns) and the corner rounder from EKSuccess to make the scalloped border.

I wanted to use up the last of my paper from my Miracle Kit (that's right the LAST of my kit-woohoo again, I never am this on top of things!!  I usually hoard it for months and then lose interest!!!) and it screamed baby boy to me.  I tried using a different "baby" stamp, but was drawn back to this bear from the retired Beary Much stamp set.  It's just the perfect size for a card.  I'd make smaller cards, but, they charge extra in postage for "non-standard" sizes and quite frankly, here in Alaska, we don't need to make up reasons to spend more on postage!!! ;O)

I have a couple layouts completed with the Miracle Kit that I will be posting over the next couple of days.  I love the colors in this kit and hope to see more like it in our future catalogs!

Paper: Miracle Kit and Sweet Pea
Cardstock:  Sweet Leaf and Colonial White
Stamp Sets: Beary Much, Baby Steps, and Now & Forever
Ink:  Tskuineko Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black
Other:  CTMH Blush chalk (bear's cheeks) and watercolor pencils, CTMH Waxy Flax (Miracle Kit), EKSuccess corner rounder, Favorite Findings buttons and Casa Collection ribbon


  1. So sweet!!! Love the bear - he looks huggable. Thanks for playing along with H2H!

  2. The card is very nice. I'm loving the inside and envelope as well!

  3. Gasp! So cute, so cute, so cute! Love how you used these papers for a baby card...and I totally love that bear!

  4. Super sweet card! Love how you did the inside too!

  5. Not only is your card adorable, but your photo is great too!

  6. My teddy! I miss teddy...so glad you brought him back to life! Love that you added stamping inside the card and on the envelope. Brilliant idea to use Miracle papers for a baby - I can totally see the layouts used for a baby boy now...with blue DE Irresistibles - hmmm....off to find those baby boy photos!
