Kitty with Heart - Hello, Friend

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a sweet card that can be used for an all-occasion card or for a valentine....next year, of course! :)  A friend recently brought me a lovely snack bag that had Ritz crakers, homemade apple-jalapeno jelly, and cream cheese. YUM!!!  That combo is one of my favorite indulgences!! She lined the bag with a pretty red heart doily, which I told her would end up on a card....so fair warning!  lol...

Since the doily was large, it would not fit easily on a single card...so I glued it onto a large scrap of flirty black and white dotted cardstock and die cut various sizes of hearts from it. LOVE!!!

I also followed the MFT Sketch for this week:

Supplies used include:
Great Impressions - Kitty with Heart stamp #E860S (retired)
Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set (balloon)
Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs die set
Newton's Nook Designs - Baskets of Wishes stamp set (sentiment)
Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir Markers
Misc. white cardstock and DCWV scraps
Ribbon from stash
Gingham paper from stash

I hope you liked my card. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week. We are getting a little bit of fresh snow tonight. Hope you are staying safe and warm wherever you are.
