Go with all your heart...

I just LOVE this sentiment stamp, from Quietfire Design, and use it often. It's done from
artist Suzanne Canon's beautiful original hand calligraphy.

The Paris collage stamp is from Hero Arts, stamped twice on background paper inked with Ecoline Watercolour Inks (also available from Quietfire) and outlined with Krylon gold leafing ink. Then I cut out the second Eiffel Tower and pop-dotted it for a little additional dimension. The keyhole is an old embellishment from my stash.

The Created by Hand challenge this week is to do "Journey Art," and the Wednesday Stamper
challenge is to incorporate keyholes, and because I thought they were such a good "fit,"
I created this card this morning for each of them.

I've been away from challenges all summer long, busy doing other things...
travelling, entertaining, gardening, so it's feeling GREAT to be playing again.

Thank you so much for visiting today.
