A Happy Heart!

What a day this has been! I have been watching the inauguration all day and although I don't live that far from D.C. I opted for staying home and watching it on TV. It is crazy in DC right now! Thankfully my hubby's office is far enough away from he shouldn't have too much traffic but I will keep my fingers crossed that he makes it home on time. For todays card I used the SU Valentine's Day set "A Happy Heart". The paper is all from SU, and for the first time ever I used my Fiskars embossing plates with my Cuttlebug. It was so easy and made a great impression. I am buying more of those babies! If you would like to know the recipe I used for stacking the CB plates let me know. I hope that all of you are having a great day!

I love that card and that stamp! You did an awesome job with your coloring choices too! It makes me want to make a wish! I'm SO glad I don't live in DC right now! We moved from there back in August! I loved living there but with yesterday's craziness I'm glad I'm not there! I can't imagine the traffic horror! YIKES!!

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that you do need to lightly mist one side of your cardstock with water.
