A Blast From the Past

With Color My Heart
My very first Color My Heart Challenge was May 28, 2012. The color challenge was purple. Here is my entry to that challenge: A New Color Dare. At that time I called the coloring technique a puddle pad. Just take a baby wipe to make a pad and puddle it with re-inkers and use as an ink pad
I used the same stamp and pattern for this notepad cover as I did in 2012 giving it an updated look. The colors I used for this Color My Heart challenge are Sapphire, Julep, and Eggplant.

Purples, Blues, and Greens are always 
fun to play with. Give it a try.

Happy Birthday

 AMERICA
As we celebrate our nation's birthday, I wish you a truck full of blessings and joy. As we pray for our country and our leaders, may the Lord fill our hearts with His love for all Americans. Blessings to you and your family as we celebrate together all that God has done to make our country rich beyond all imagination. 
Have a blessed day, Jody

The truck card was inspired by my downline 
Valerie Beechler.

Tags for All Occassions

With Paper Clusters
The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is to use a tag on your project. I decided to make a collection of tags with paper clusters. Each tag is made with scraps of papers in the colors from the Color My Heart challenge. The scraps are randomly layered on each tag and staple to the tag.  The staple is covered with an icon of your choice. Add a sentiment to the tag and attach the tag to a card, gift bag, or scrapbook page.
Collection of tags made with the new tag Thin Cuts.
 Sweet Leaf, Peach, Peacock

Use these colors for your project and share are Color My Heart.
