Waltzingmouse December Release Hop ~ Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse December Release Hop!!   

Today we're featuring two new sets:  My Heart and Woodenheart Alphabet

My Heart is a charming wood grained set filled with lovely images that can be used for weddings, Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, or any friend or loved one.  I chose to make a Valentine's Day card for my husband.  Thus the masculine look again.  I Rock~n~Rolled the heart using Pearlescent Beige and Coffee Bean (Brilliance).  All the leaves and the banner were inked with Pearlescent Olive and Coffee Bean (Brilliance), using the same technique.

The numbers are from the Woodenheart Alphabet set.  The date is the year we got married and was Rock~n~Rolled with Coffee Bean (Brilliance) and Onyx Black (Versafine).  I thought about putting our initials in the heart, but that's as far as I got...because our initials are "E"and "T".  I can't help but thinking about "phoning home" every time I put our initials together.  LOL

I inked the Woodgrain Backgrounder with Latte (a muse), stamped it on ivory cs, and embossed it with a Wood grain embossing folder by Sizzix.  I then sanded it and inked some Waltnut Stain (Ranger Distress) a bit over the raised portions.  Lastly, I added some Natural Burlap String (May Arts), a Button and an EK Success punched border.

That's it for today's project.  Be sure to visit all the other participating DT blogs.  You won't want to miss a stop.

And, a little reminder that a few of the DT will be hopping after the release also.  Claire will have the list on her blog when the time gets closer.
