{SS} #154: Lace and Hearts

Good morning sweeties!
How are you doing?  Are you staying warm?  Dry?
Yes, I ask dry because, we got some light showers here the other day!!
It was completely random but, a very nice welcome.

So I am back, with this weeks challenge card for SweetStamps.
This weeks theme is:
Lace and Hearts 
I just love how this card looks!!!  That Lace Border stamp, is now one of my favorites!!
Now, I don't not have a steady hand, so I used a Stampin-ma-jig, to get the perfect alignment. 
Isn't that just a beautiful stamp!!??!
For the heart frame, I rubbed Lave red Inka-Gold and white Glitter Ritz to the center!!
Added my loved, "With Love" sentiment, a button and twine!  All on kraft too!!  You know how much this gall loves her kraft cardstock!!  :) 
With Valentine's around the corner, hope you find the time to join us this week.
