Interlocking Heart Card

Well, Happy Monday and President's Day!!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's weekend.  The family was all here and we had a great time.  Lots of food and laughs!!  Jennifer was busy playing with her Barbies and her kitchen set making goodies for everyone to eat, Rachel and her boyfriend stopped by of course for dinner and Sarah was busy eating all the goodies.  We had a great time!

Last week, I saw this adorable card TUTORIAL over at Splitcoaststampers created by one of my favorite bloggers Brenda Quintana.  I decided to make it for Joe for Valentine's Day but didn't start until Sat. night at 10PM!!  I had ordered the Bloomin' Love along with the Thinlets Die and was anxious to use them.  Well, what a disaster!!  After trying to die cut it 6 times with different sandwiches, I finally got one half cut and did the rest by hand.  Yes, I was determined to make this card, partly because I didn't have another one for him.  I was so upset and annoyed, but I think it turned out OK every after all the mess!

For my papers, I used Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Shimmery White.  This is how the inside of the card turned out.

I put it on his coffee cup after midnight, so he would see it first thing in the AM.  The first thing he tells me in the AM is that the die really worked out great!!!  I said NO, my fingers did most of the cutting!!!  This was definitely a labor of love!!!

I called Stampin Up this AM and they are sending me a new die!  I have to say there were very nice and pleasant to deal with.  I had even purchased the Precision Plate to aid in the process, so we are pretty sure it is the die which they feel must be defective..  Hopefully, the new die will work.

Well, the snow is back but at least the girls have today off as well as Jennifer and her Mom.  Only my daughter who is the nurse is working.  As she says, nurses never get days off!  Hope you have a good week!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

Another lovely card. So happy to hear your husband appreciated it, and that you had a lovely Valentine's weekend. WE are getting snow here again today, but it takes a load full for us to close down anything here. ugh. did an awesome job with the card.

You sure can't tell you had any trouble with it. It turned out beautiful and not a bit of imperfection. I saw that tutorial and thought I might like to try it.
