Mabelle RO: Angel Heart

Happy Monday!

It is Mabelle RO Monday. Today I'm featuring "Angel Heart" a new release in her Valentine/Love digi line. 

I used non-traditional colors {for a Valentine}, because I think this image is so much more than just a Valentine.  This card is for my niece's birthday, which was yesterday January 8th.

I love the rich colors of Crate Paper "Farmhouse".  I chose this patterned paper because of the shape of the flowers.  How amazing that they match the flower on the angel's hat!  I knew I had to use this paper.

The buttons (PTI) are 4 hole buttons so I strung the 3 buttons together using 2 of the holes.  I used a short piece of button twine (PTI) and the 2 open button holes and tied the knot.  Then wrapped the twine around a few times.

Supplies -- Mabelle RO digi "Angel Heart", Crate Paper "Farmhouse", PTI Terracotta Tile, Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart, XPress-It cardstock, PTI vintage buttons and rustic button twine, Copic Markers, Sewing Machine.

Copic Colors: BG10, BG15, BG18, YR15, YR18, YR30, R02, R32, R35, R37, E00, E11, E13, E21, E33, E35, E37

I took a little break from stamping in December, packed up everything that is usually sitting out in the kitchen for the Christmas and New Year holiday.  I thought for sure I would feel inspired when I was on vacation, but all I was inspired to do was clean out cupboards and closets - a good thing.

I have lots of stamps, cardstock, patterned paper, some tools, dies and accessories for sale.  So if you live close and are interested drop me an e-mail.  I have everything laid out in the sunroom, priced to sell and ready to go to a new home.    

Challenge Alert!

My friend, Christine is having a fun Coloring Challenge over at her blog - and there is blog candy!  You need to color an image that has fur and use non-traditional colors.  If you use a Mabelle RO digi you are entered in the drawing twice!  Post to Facebook to be entered a 3rd time.  Hope you play along!  The challenge is open until January 20th at 6 pm (CST).

I will post my entry next Monday...missed the "fur" part of the challenge.  Good thing this challenge is running 2 weeks! 

Thanks for stopping by!
Abundant Blessings,
