Simple Cuddles & Hugs

Simple Cuddles & Hugs

It was definitely cooler here yesterday but still very pleasant. I managed to get a few projects finished in the morning and then I settled in to watch a little TV. My friend Danielle called me around 3:00, she had tickets to go to Westchester and see the NY Pro Bodybuilding Competition and her boyfriend was sick so she asked if I wanted to go. Sure, why not, never been to something like that before. It was actually pretty interesting, they are very serious about the competition and I can’t imagine how much work it takes one to get in that kind of shape! A fun evening with my friend! Who could ask for anything more?!

I’m going to try, I’m saying try, to do a nice simple card on Sunday’s and we’ll refer to it as Simple Sunday from now on! Today’s is just that type of card. I stared by heat embossing the heart from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Peacock Card Stock. It’s cut out with the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Die. I then used the hugs die from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Die Set to cut out the negative hugs from the heart and I also cut it out from a piece of Gold Mirror Card. The heart is adhered to the card base with Multi-Matte Medium along with the hugs. I added just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love the inlaid hugs in the heart, especially since the hugs die leaves that little bit of white around it! I hope that you like my card for Simple Sunday! I appreciate your visiting as always and hope that you really enjoy your day! ūüôā
