AHSC Happy Thoughts & SU Card Class

After struggling with what to make for yesterday's Joyful Stars CTMH blog hop post,  the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge made today's card a breeze.  And, with the heart embellishments, this card will join the others I've been making for the 
Cards for Little Hearts current card drive.

Once again, I've used papers and zip strips from the 
new CTMH Chelsea Gardens paper pack. 
The sentiment is from CTMH, but is far from new.
Heart and dot embellishments finish off the card.

Here's the sketch I followed:


Shopping Our Stash Challenge # 336- Out with the Old (stamp, hearts) and In with the New (paper, dots)
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #447 - Inspiration colors white, blue and gray

Tuesday I attended Jan Hoyt's SU card class. 
Although we stay in touch, it was nice to see her again.
Her class focuses on fun and simple cards like these:
That's not dirty snow, just a coating of glitter pen that photographed badly.  Honest!

When in Florida, you can say this and know you won't be doing any shoveling!

I'm saving this one for my grandson who will be 18 in March.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
