My heart is full...


Well, after staying up till the wee hours, glued to the American election coverage, I have to say MY HEART IS FULL!

So, that's the genesis for this card, where I've
combined three challenges.

Over at Arty Girlz, the challenge is to use some freehand work. Oh my. I use stamps because I can't even draw stick people! So the best I could do was to dot black ink around the border of my oval, and you wouldn't believe how long it took me to do THAT! The oval on my card is the third dotted attempt. Sigh. So, Crissi and Julie, I really did try! ;)

Over at Crazy Amigo, the theme is hearts.
I stamped the SU heart with Vintage Paper Distress Ink, then overstamped the Quietfire Design sentiment in India Black Ink. This picks up the theme over at Created By Hand,
which is to use black and brown tones.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now, in my lingering celebratory mood, I'm off to see everyone else's wonderful things!

Oh Deborah! This is lovely! The red flower on the white and black is brilliant! And I share your thoughts and sentiments. I woke up this morning (albeit VERY sleepy from staying up half the night) with a huge smile and heartfelt thoughts of what is new on America's horizon and the world too! :)

I am in complete and utter agreement with you Deborah. As I travel from blog to blog today, I feel the hope that I felt when I heard the results. Beautiful tribute to this hope.
