Hand Held Heart

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is going well and you are all getting some relaxation time as well as getting to some of those jobs that just need doing! My daughter came over to bring her dogs again for another stay as the gardener for the house she rents was spraying poison on the weeds today and she didn't want the dogs eating any of it and they also have a party there tomorrow and usually everyone gives the dogs tidbits and they end up sick from eating too much. We ended up going out for a while to get a few groceries and then back here for lunch. I had a very short snooze probably about 15 mins as the dogs kept barking outside, had a couple of phonecalls and then decided to make a card for the Less Is More Challenge - week 36 - the theme is hearts, singular or plural and it has to be a one layer card.
So, this is what I came up with. The stamp is one I bought about 3 years ago, it came with some others that I wanted and I've never inked it up. In fact, I had to clean it first as there was dried blue ink all over one side of the image. It doesn't have a name but is made by Inkadinkado. I inked it in Chocolate Chip SU ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then coloured with Copics - I added the greeting in Basic Grey. I've taken a photo as the scan didn't come up very well. The left hand side of the heart is a very dark brown and looks black in the photo, just can't win, LOL.
Well I might just dawdle back and start something else for tomorrow's post!
Catch you later,
Take Care,

  3. I must to admit to wholeheartedly preferring photos to scans as all life seems to be sapped from cards in the process.
    This looks just great, what an interesting stamp.
