Create with TLC: Direction of your heart


Happy Thursday to you!  I can't believe that May is quickly winding down.  I will have a birthday coming up here pretty soon.  Hmmm...maybe some birthday blog candy will be up for grabs. :-)  Also, you will definitely want to pop in this weekend as I join MayzyArt's talented DTs for a blog hop.  There is plenty of yummy goodies up for grabs so you don't want to miss out on hopping with us.  :-)

Today, I want to share with you a couple of cards I made using a freebie wordart from Paulette over at Create with TLC.  I find inspiration everyone and in almost anything.  When I read this sentiment, all kinds of inspirational ideas popped in my head and I still have more to execute. 

Here are my creations...

As you can see, they are really simple cards but the message is powerful.  I cut out the hearts and arrows using my Cameo.  I used Bazzill cardstock on both cards and really didn't have a size or shape in mind.  I just focused on the sentiment and how I wanted to represent it.  I realized that I didn't use any markers on embellies on these cards, once I finished them.  These are truly CAS cards. :-)

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. Wow!! I LOVE CAS on white cards, but although I'm not one for much embellishment, I have trouble with it. You sooo rocked this! Not just the sentiment, which is wonderful, but the colors and design, and everything are just fabulous. These are definitely going in my inspiration file! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh I love these, the CAS look and the colors just pop, nice!

  5. While I absolutely LOVE your cards, I have to be perfectly honest with you and tell you that I enjoy coming to your blog a little more so to take a long GAZE into the eyes of the luscious Shemar Moore. My oh my, he is SO yummy! I could just look at him all day. But, I will also say that your card is lovely as well. See, you shouldn't distract me like this. LOL

    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful artwork with us this week. We had an horrific earthquake here on Friday (maybe 2, back to back). The tremors were so strong here even though the epicentre was 35 miles to the northwest. No damage.
