Make It Monday 1 CR84FN14 And Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday. I hope your week has been a good one. We had another big winter storm here yesterday. More snow and cold which is definitely not helping my migraines. I had another bad one early this morning. Thankfully it is gone now and the sun is shining today. It is suppose to be in the 50's by the weekend so that is good. I am really ready for spring though. Something I am very happy about is our new treadmill is suppose to be delivered in the next few hours, super happy about that. I have really missed not having one especially when you can't walk outside because of the weather.
Today I wanted to share a card I made for the first Make It Monday hosted by Papertrey Ink. You can read more about it here. The challenge this week is to make a Go To Sentiment Card hosted by Erin Lincoln. This is what I came up with.

I also used the colors in this weeks CR84FN challenge 14

and Waltzing Mouse Sketch 33 for my layout too.

I started by using some of the wonderful sentiments from Melissa Phillips Love Lives Here Set. I stamped them using brown Versamark Ink. After that I colored the hearts in the sentiments with a Copic Marker then stamped some more hearts from the set. When I was done with that I stamped the bottom of the house using Dark Chocolate Ink and the roof with Raspberry Fizz. Next I added a piece of lace trim to the bottom of the sentiment piece then added machine stitching. To finish it off I added some tiny pearls and some pink ribbon around the house. I am really hoping this card gets picked as one of the top 6 because I would really love to win the prize this week. I could definitely put that gift certificate to good use. That's all for now. I hope the rest of your week is a great one and will be back soon with more to share.

Oh Terri! This is beautiful. Love your layout and the colors are so sweet. Excellent job! I hear you about wanting spring. But here in Colorado that means snow! So maybe it is spring like the ground hog said. All I know is the temps were -20° this morning. I think I need hot cocoa! Keep warm and hope your headaches go away soon.
