Miss You 39

Hello! Are you having a good weekend? I sure hope so! Today I have a few projects to share using some fun paper that I made using the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate. It makes it so easy to create your own "artsy" looking paper without a whole lot of effort ~ gotta love that ;)
I made this card featuring three die cut hearts that were made using Die-namics LJD Rustic Hearts and my "artsy" papers.  
I was inspired by the current Collage Obsession challenge where the theme is Mail Art, to randomly stamp various images from DC First Class Friend on the text paper. I also dry embossed a Kraft cs using a postage themed embossing folder then dry brushed Gesso across to highlight to embossed images. 
For me, variety is the spice of my crafting life so I made a little decoration using Die-namics Mini Album Bracket STAX for my sweet sister Tina who has been away working in New Mexico for the past 3 weeks. I'm going to surprise her and hang this somewhere in her kitchen so she finds it when she returns home next week :)
For the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with Freshly Made Sketches:
and for color inspiration for both projects, I joined along with Paperdvizhnik:
Thanks so much for dropping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
