From Our Home to Yours...

Welcome Back!
I have a fun little card to share with you today!
It's Wednesday, so you already know it's a Heartfelt Creations post...and I hope you've 
already seen the adorable "Sugar Hollow" Collection.  
People have really fallen in love with this collection...and I certainly don't blame them!

I decided to keep my design simple this week.
There are times when every crafter doesn't have a lot of time to create a card, and this week I wanted to show you how easy it was to keep your design simple but still give people the illusion that you spent a lot of time creating.  

I chose a plain background paper that had a soft and pretty design. 
I then decided to give the card a bit of interest by using a piece of a decorative border along one side.  
A die cut shape on the bottom corner also adds interest, however is quick and easy to accomplish. 

Here's a peek at the card...


I chose the fun owl family image stamp to work with on this creation, along with the leaning tree.  
Both images have been water colored using Derwent water color pencils.  
The small blossoms are those ever so versatile flowers from the Birds and Blooms collection.  
I've used 3D pop dots on the tree, the owl family as well as the sentiment to give the card lots of dimension.  
The fun finishing touches that I've used here are the multicolored prills as well as the yellow Stickles.  

The perfect card creation for a housewarming, a thank you or any type of well wishes occasion from your family to another.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit here today!
Don't let it be too long before you stop in again!
I appreciate each and every visit, and you are more than welcome to leave a comment to let me know you were here!

Until next time...
