Paper Smooches: February LOVE Challenge #1

Hello, friends:)
I was able to play around in my studio yesterday and that means....I'm joining in the fun with the Paper Smooches February LOVE challenge.
I went with a simple design using some of the NEW Paper Smooches Half Moon papers along with the Heidi Swapp Color Fresh 6x6 paper pad. Add a vellum speech bubble, a few hearts and white thread, and finish it with a die cut sentiment.... EASY!
PS stamps/dies/stencils used include: Half Moon papers, Love Word 2 dieTiny Hearts diesSpeech Bubbles dies

That's it for me today. I hope you create something for our challenge-- you could win a gift certificate to the PS store! Be sure to stop by HERE to link up and play along:)

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:)

Being sick for most of the month of January was awful 😷🤧 and resulted in me to not being able to play in my studio until this past weekend. Let me tell you ---I had SOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun designing and creating with my new PS goodies!

For my project today, I created a fun birthday card for a friend using the NEW PS Happy Hellos stamp set.
I was inspired by THIS traveler notebook layout by Ashley Horton (2018). I love how this little birdie looks watercolored in a bright yellow! I think I might color him green next time🐦 **That's as close to a green bird emoji I could find! LOL!
