With All My Heart....

I love you (said to my DH in my most SINCERE voice)!! I do love that man but, (you always know the "but" is coming, right!!) He wanted to go antiquing today-- love it, no problem- taking my car- a convertible, black and black leather- even with the top down and air going full blast- with this heat it's like an inferno!!! Needless to say when I got home it was time to take another cold shower and change clothes- having a few hot flashes!! Did find a couple things while we were there. He found a "treasure" and bargained for a good price so, he's saying that makes up for heat exhaustion!! I'm thinking we could have taken the SUV and been happy??

Enough of the gab... this card is for the last weekly Verve sketch challenge.

Went with one of my fav color combos and used some SU Love Letters dp (hoarded this stuff) along with crumbcake and black. Those hearts were cut out with Verve's Jotted Heart die and layered on nesties. One of the hearts used a coffee cover- hospital trip, not, Starbucks. The flower was made using crinoline from Linda at the funkiejunkie (cut out with Verve's Floral Circles die) and sponged with TH antique distress linen ink, wet under the sink, scrunched, and dried- you can die the crinoline too. Behind the crinoline flower are several layers of black tissue paper cut out with a scalloped nestie die. Added button and twine. Finale.... Verve's Charming oval die cut out with the same coffee cover and sentiment stamped in memento tuxedo black. The sentiment is from Verve's Small Phrases- fits perfectly.... LOVE!!

Sketch this week by Laurie (lauraly onSCS) Schmidlin. How fabulous is this!!

TFL!! If you stop by, love to hear from you... by tomorrow I will be rested up from the heat and can come visit!!

ETA- more "true" to the Diva Dare challenge.

This is a stunning version of Laurie's sketch! It's been hotter than Hades in our area as well...hate to say it, but will be glad to see fall roll around.
