Heart 2 Heart Challenges: Retired

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my blog! This week's Heart2Heart Challenges theme is "Retired", wether it's a celebration of retirement from a career or the retirement of our favorite Close To My Heart products, there are many ways to interpret this theme.  My project is a simple black and white card showcasing one of my favorite stamps that will be retiring at the end of July. The stamp is "Smiles Begin With You" item number A1172, this stamp can still be ordered online through Close To My Heart.

Here's a list of the tools and products used to create this card:
  • White Daisy Card Stock
  • Black Card Stock
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Clear Sparkles
  • Glue Dots
  • Black and White Twine
  • 3D Foam Tape or Foam Squares
  • Tape Runner 

I hope you like today's project, don't forget to visit the rest of the Heart2Heart design team members to see what they've created for this weeks challenge. If you would like to enter a project for this week's challenge, please visit us on Facebook or at
