I LOVE using the Rub ons that Close to My Heart makes. They are so easy! For this card, I used a 6 x 3 inch base from the Juniper floral B&T (background and texture paper). Before I stuck it down, I used an ornate corner decor-punch. I used the punch again on my gold-diamond B&T card that measured 2 1/2 x 2. Finally, I added a 1 x 6 inch piece of the backside of the Juniper B&T as a strap across the card. I sat a little more than a 1/4 inch from the bottom of the card. All of the pieces were inked up in Chocolate by scraping the edges across the ink pad. I used Copper Brads to tack down the strap and added some punched flowers and a button to finish off the design. The "Memories" sentiment was a rub-on as well as the swirls along the strap. Both were from the Love Story Rub-ons by Close to My Heart.

My favorite things in the world are a showery day, a warm cup of cider, a great idea and an empty notepad, or two or three - heck, just get me a whole case of the suckers, the pink ones! :) When my mom challenged me to do what I loved, I reclaimed my desire to write and can't stand to go a day, now, without spending some time with a pen in my hand. I'm not sure where God is leading me on this journey, but I asked Him to give me the desires of my heart and trust that He has for a purpose.
