Loads of Love...




There are some new stamps at Alota Rubber Stamps that I just am crazy about... they have so many possibilities! The set is the Wagon Wheelbarrow collection... and it is just that an adorable wagon and a gorgeous wheelbarrow with lots of fun things to pile into them! Also included is some fun sentiments.
These can be used on their own, but think of all the stamps we can put with these! Well you know me... first off I just had to have a Donkey pulling the wagon! This is one of the donkeys from Alota Rubber Stamps collection "Michelle's Sweet Little Donkeys" (Just love that name!!!) I stamped the wagon, then on top of that the hearts, then the donkey. I colored everything with my Copics and then cut everything out. I had to cut the handle to the wagon and move it to the right angle, but love how it looks! I cut an oval with my Nestibilites and placed them on it. The large heart is cut with my Making Memories Slice, it is meant to be a scalloped heart frame... I took the heart that it cut from the center, inked the edges and stamped the "Loads of Love" sentiment on it, then stitched with my red Copic Multi-liner. Love how it looks like a big pillow. The paper is from K&Company's valentine collection, I added the stickles on the hearts to give the card just a bit of sparkle. I sewed the edge with a blanket stitch, and added the simple lace ribbon. A simple card filled with Loads of Love.
Make sure to check out the new set and all the new images Helene has added this month!! (HERE) There are some new backgrounds, and new bugs too! And while visiting there, check out the sale she is having!! But hurry there are some fabulous images there and the sale only last until January 18th!

Brrrr.... it sure was cold here this morning! 25 degrees! That is cold for this Texas girl! I am going to bundle up and go out and check on the babies and make sure they all have some extra breakfast today!
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, time to get inky!
HUGS and -

get annoyed while peoplе consideг worries that they just
