Miss You (But Not the Stuff)

Welcome to another year.  Hope yours is a good one.


A large lonely heart....cut with the Silhouette to make a stencil.  Placed the stencil on a white card, angled so that a piece of the heart is missing.  Sponged Ranger Distress Inks ( a lot) on the card and used a black pen to outline the heart.  Stamped the sentiment and I was done.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Pretty good

I'm enjoying starting a new year with less stuff.  It's tricky.  Too few supplies and I'm looking to buy. Too much and it stifles creativity, costs too much, and takes up space I need for other things.  Always looking for that balance!

  1. Love this Joan - it's so artsy and so much thought has gone into that heart and its emptiness. Just perfect!!

  3. Happy New Year Joan B! What a wonderful vibrant heart - super color - love the outline - I really need to clean out my space as well - I have SO much stuff that I will never use (thought I really needed it when I bought it - but no - I apparently didn't!)

  6. Cute card, Joan! How do you get rid of your stuff - do you have any advice to share? I have been really good this year (2 kids in college - lack of disposable income helps!) about using consumables I already have, but I have not found a way to get rid of old stamps.
