hearts, tilda, and friends...

Good morning everyone! I hope your day has been super already! You all know that my Monday's are usually quite busy and today is no exception even though the boys have the day off school for end of quarter.

There are a couple of fun challenges out there that I wanted to play in but just didn't have the time to get to all of them separately so I put three of them together! This card works for the Sweet N Sassy Stamps Design Team Challenge, the KL Stamping and Scrappin' Monthly challenge, and Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #51. The SNSS challenge and the KLSS challenge both involve hearts and the TECC challenge is the sketch that I used.

I used some of the wonderful Basic Grey Bittersweet Paper, the sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps set called A True Friend, and the very sweet Tilda image named Cross Stitch Tilda came from a fellow SNSS DT member Sandy...thank you so much! I am just learning how to color these super cute images but if you click on Cross Stitch Tilda above you will find a wonderful coloring tutorial.

Tomorrow is another Created by Courtney Challenge so I hope you'll check back to see what you get to work with. And don't forget...you can sign up to win some Basic Grey Glory from Lorie HERE.

Have a wonderful rest of your day!
