I had the best weekend I have had in a looooooooong time. Lots of sleeping, shopping, movie watching and fun time spent with my favorite person in the whole world! I had been feeling a little lacking in the mojo department lately, so while I was on vacation I was a pinning fool.
Pinterest is one of my favorite inspiration hang-outs and my boards are getting full. I gathered up inspiration all weekend long, and came home on Sunday raring to get in the craft room and stamp up a storm. I was particularly inspired by this photo I pinned onto my "Cards" board —

I loved the hearts forming a larger heart, the stitching, the use of a lot of different patterns, pretty much everything! So I decided to make a card using all of those elements.
I really love it. It has a home spun feel that I don't often see in my cards. Do you recognize the patterned paper pack I took my hearts from? It's one of my favs!
My one complaint? The stitching on this bad boy took forever. I watched a WHOLE Jersey Shore while I did it! But, I guess it was worth it since I like the end result!
I filmed the process for this week's Made-It Monday. Check it out —
