Jar Full of Hello - Stampin' Up! Jar of Love - Fab Friday 157

It's amazing how fast 2 weeks goes by isn't it?  I look at the calendar to plan ahead and see all the days stretched out and I think I have plenty of time and then BAM! the next thing I know all those days I thought I had are gone.  Well that's pretty much how it goes before every Fab Friday challenge!  I don't rush with my card (usually) but I feel if maybe I had started working a little bit sooner it might have been better.  Am I the only one who feels this way?

 Anyway, we have a beautiful sketch for this Fab Friday challenge and I'm lookign forward to seeing what you all come up with for those scattered hearts.  Remember you don't have to do hearts, it can be any shape.

  I wanted to have a nice cheerful card after several days of cold rainy weather.  My colors came from some fabric I saw back in December when I took my mom fabric shopping.  She does fabric, I do paper!  There are always so many patterns and colors to inspire me I took a bunch of pictures and have been using them to inspire some cards.

  My Jar of Love stamp set hadn't seen ink in quite a while so I thought it would be perfect for a cheerful Hello card to go with this sketch.

  Absolutely nothing fancy going on here but I must say I really like the Subtle embossing folder lately.  It gives a lovely light texture when you need 'something' but all the other patterns are just 'too much'.

  The Everyday Jars framelits were used to cut out all the shapes and the only embellishment I used was a tiny Night of Navy baker's twine bow.

  I hope you'll check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team's work and then join in with your own creation.  I can't wait to see it in the gallery!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
