DeeDee's Digis - My Heart is Yours #2

Good evening, and welcome ....Another card from that fabulous DeeDee's Digi My Heart is Yours set.  Used the same papers & design as the earlier card, just reversed the paper position, and used the 2nd image from the set. Another 'get er done' card, as my friend Lynn would say. BTW- the top paper is from a Recollection 8.5x11 Valentine paper pack, 50% off in the local Michael's. Bottom is 12x12 sheet - Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.


- printed 2 digi images, fussy cut one.  WoS pens on the basket hearts. Actually there were more pink hearts than shown, but the WoS pink made these look red.  Then a stylus added a bit of shaping; adhered the top basket to the MFT pierced circle image which had just a smidge of DI Spun Sugar on the outer edge.

- sentiment from an old stamp, same DI spun sugar for ink. Think it might have looked better with a darker ink shade, but it is what it is. The die is from a Sue Wilson set and the tiny hearts were an  MS punch that has multiple sized tiny hearts...and used a snippet left from this card. All these bits & pieces are in a pile. {Sigh...I had sorted all the snippets into my colored boxes very recently. Sure can't tell it just now}. White c/s snippet embossed with the tiny hearts E/F, colored with copics. (Avery Elle Elle-ments angle die)

Received this link in an email this morning, and thought I'd share.
http://www.youtube.com/embed/__Hz-eaj3x0?rel=0There's a very pretty song to enjoy, and the singer explains how she came to write this song, about the memories of her childhood. (sounded as though she had a lilting Scottish accent). Think I've previously shared that I have 5 older brothers  (2 who have left us). These fellas are stair steppers - 2 years apart - and grew up on my Grandmother's farm. Not much money, lots of hard work, but they still had time to play country kids' fun. Have heard these stories all my life; as I listened to the words of this song, I could just see those 5 little boys in my mind, and got a little misty. Both the brothers who bother with the computer sent me this song today. Hope you'll enjoy it too & perhaps have some happy memories.
 
As always, have a great evening, and thanks for joining me. Hope you're able to stay cozy & warm where you may be. God Bless & Big Hugs.

Such a pretty basket of hearts and more of that pretty paper! Forgot to say in the last comment that I can't wait to see what you bought at the Stamp Convention and how special to meet a blogging friend there.

Just listened to the song! Thanks so much for sharing. I'm a bit misty eyed myself and what a lovely voice she has! I love songs that I can actually understand the words to.

Another pretty! These are so clever. Wish I could whip them up that quickly! Loved the Isla Grant song too - TFS - definitely Scottish - tried to see where it was filmed, to no avail! Have a great night!

Another pretty valentine Mary and the basket of hearts is just perfect! Love the bit of film too. I have never heard of the lady but she has a nice voice and I can see how it would remind you of your childhood too. We have quite similar scenery here in West Somerset where we have the Quantock and Exmoor hills and some very pretty villages and thatched cottages. x
