Door to My Heart

Inspiration

Here's my second card this week, made with the new Chateau Gate Collection from Heartfelt Creations. It's not too early to start making Valentine cards, you know, and this collection has some very pretty images and sayings that will be perfect for those "heartfelt" cards! This one features the Grand Portal set, and sentiments from the Door to My Heart sentiment set, and the beautiful new die that creates perfect little doors!

And, by the way, if you're in the Dallas area, Heartfelt Creations has a booth at the Stamp Scrap Art Tour in Mesquite this Saturday & Sunday. I'm doing the make & take at the booth - stop by to see me & pick up the new collection!
