Not a Valentine.....

Hi there everybody: The SHOPPING OUR STASH has a new challenge for you to play with this coming week. The theme is HEARTSđź’•, create a card or project with hearts, it doesn't necessarily have to be a Valentine.
Here is my card, hope it inspires you to come and play along.

These little houses are from what I think, it's a Sizzix set, I say that I think it is because I just can't remember, the dies and stamps are in a plastic bag with no tags or names, sigh!! but they are cute, cute so that's why I used them for this card.
I stamped the houses on watercolor paper and colored them with SU markers, the pine trees in the back are from a retired SU set called "Lovely as a Tree" that dates back to 2002!! The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "On the Porch" (2012), the little hearts coming from the chimneys are from a retired SU punch called "Owl Builder" that came out I think back in 2010. 


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The border was stamped with SU markers using the retired SU stamp set called "Bordering Blooms" and the sentiment is from the same Flourishes set.

I hope you come and join my teammates and me in the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery. Visit their blogs for even more inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by, I sure appreciate your kind comments.
