Sweet Melinda Hugging Heart

Okay... this is the third time I'm writing this post, cause my computer keeps closing the Inernet window when I'm finished, and clearing everything while I'm making the last editing to then publish!!

Now this card already took me two days to fiish, now it's taking an hour to get it published!! :(
Don't know about you, but every time I try to make an aperture card, my mojo has a rest. I couldn't quite finish this card, I kept thinking to myself that it lacks something. Blah! Anyway, this lovely Melinda had to be entered for Basic Grey Challenge, but as you see I'm two days behind! But luckily I also had in mind Cute Card Thursday, as they want to see hearts.. and I have seven here; including the metal charm :)

I hope that those of you who had in mind to put up the tree this weekend has found the time to do so. I also hope that you also find the time and space to put up also a small(or large!) crib. Please do remember that all this decorating, giving, sharing and thinking of others is all about Jesus. One doesn't take all the energy to prepare a Birthday party, preparing mountains of food, music, presents, inviting friends.. and then leave the Birthday Boy/Girl outside the house, does he?? Do think about it!

Whiff of Joy stamps can be purchased from lovely Summer at Roses on Paper, with more other cute stamps like Magnolias ( choice of more than a 100 stamps), Sarah Kay, Alota, etc.. Keep checking, cause she keeps adding other cuties for us to empty our purses!lol

Two of the features I love on this online store are the Gift Certificates one can purchase from here , for a crafty friend at Christmas or maybe Birthday. Have you ever wanted to give something like stash to a friend, but don't know what's missing in her stash?? It happens to me, and Summer has a solution to that, with these Gift certificates. You can whisper that word to your hubby continually while he sleeps, till it gets into his mind as what you'd like this Christmas! :) lol

Tell him also that when you shop there you'll be adding points for rewards that may get you another free stamp! See for yourself!

I've coloured this cutie in watercolours, and softened the white around with Distress ink. I have added sparkle with silver glitter glue on the wings, hearts and flowers.
Flowers, metal clip and gems from stash
DP is Basic Grey Two Scoops
Sentiment : Studio G clear stamps

By the way look what the postie got me this week! I didn't have time to mention that I won Ruby's blog candy. Thanks Ruby I love all those things, especially the Cuttlebug embossing folder! I already used it in the other card I uploaded this week! I had to!! :) thanks :)

Thanks for looking
