Heart to Heart

Have you seen the Heart to Heart prize MOUNTAIN that is accumulating over at Carolyn's blog?? (which has grown since she and I both posted??) I emailed her to see if I can enter myself, no lie!! Be sure you play along on September 21st for a chance at some great goodies and forward the fight against Alzheimer's :) Here's a card I made with one of my favorite images from "Whimsical Autumn".


FYI The Target Dollar Spot has a terrific fall paper pack that goes GREAT with the leaves and apples Cammie's set, check it out! (Don't have a Dollar Spot? Just leave a comment on this post and I will randomly choose one person to send some of it to in 6x6 size to complement your cards, winner posted Thursday :) I used two of the papers on this card to make my background. If you follow my blog, you know I don't normally take the time to dot a whole card base border with a white gel pen, but I couldn't really NOT with the dots in that DP, could I?? and Carolyn's worth it...(BTW the dots on the DP are embossed, too pretty cool)

Several of the colors in this pack are actually a perfect match for some old In Colors (but blend nicely with others if you don't have them) I used my Cranberry Crisp CS for the Base, as well as the ink with my Aquapainter for the apples and stitched ribbon (I intended to make more than one apple green but eek, I realized too late there was only one left without Cranberry on it, hope it looks like a "special apple", and not the bad apple of the bunch LOL!) The basket is a mix of Not Quite Navy and Buckaroo Blue. True Thyme ink is sponged onto my focal point, I left my die in place while sponging to reveal the white rim after I finished. The Scalloped top and bottom was created with the Threading Water Punch.

SO is your calendar marked for the 21st?? Don't forget to leave a comment to win a little grab pack o' this paper :)

There are NO TARGETS (yes, that's right NONE!) on this island! There is one being built and scheduled for a grand opening in March, but I will be living in Italy by then. Oh, and there are NO TARGETS in Italy either! UGH! So, please pick me, I need my Target fix! lol! (but I will be trying my hardest to hit a couple Targets and Michael's [no Michael's here either] on my way to Italy when we go visit family for Thanksgiving!) Oh, and Cammie's Heart to Heart is wonderful! I will have to spread the word on my blog too!

What a cute card! I like that only one apple is green. It looks like you planned it that way. :) I just ordered the threading water punch from Gina K and I LOVE IT!!

I would appreciate being added to your drawing for the $1 paper. I do have a Target but seldom get out. (I have a terminally ill child and don't get out of the house much).

ps
I just saw that Angie doesn't have access to a Target at all. Pick her! LOL! I can't imagine not ever having access to a Target or Michaels! ;)

Oh how awesome! Love how you colored the basket and apples! And I agree, that paper is PERFect with that stamp! Our dollar spot never ever has the goodies like ya'll find...maybe I wait to long to go and they sell out quick, lol.

Norma said...

Love this card, looking forward to using my set when I get home from vacation. Also love that paper. I'll have to check out Target today.

Linda E said...

Your card is so cute and I love finding ways to use DP in my cards once and a while!

Libby Hickson said...

So cute - and wow those papers are terrific with this set! Definitely looking forward to the 21st... :-)

Darlene L said...

I live in the "outback" it seems. The nearest Target is just over 2 miles away. With gas prices these days--I sure don't get out much. What a wonderful card--TFS. darlene

Awesome card Melanie. You are right. The paper you found is a perfect compliment to her set. That image of the apples in the basket is my favorite. I wish I had some time to play. Too much going on. Hopefully Friday night will be quiet and I can play.

I need to go to Target tonight, so I will definately check out the Dollar Spot (always do).

I am planning to join the rest of the world on the 21st at Cammie's blog. She is such a sweetie.

Michelle Adams said...

Oooo! That paper is great! Please enter me for a chance to win! My Mom had surgery recently and is going in for more soon, so no chance I will get to Target any time soon...

Great card----we're in the first weeks of apple harvest here---until about the second week of November before we finish all the varieties! Super card, super cause! Was just at Target this morning---no paper! I always check there even if I don't need anything else in the store--but nothing but Disney and Star Wars items for the kids this time. Would love to have some of this paper--thanks for the opportunity to win some!

Wow Melanie I love the colours of the DP! and if anyone would think to emboss the dots, it'd be you! Wonderful card and I'd love some of the DP, we don't have a target here. I must have been under a rock lately...I'll have to hop over to Carolyn's & see whats happenin'! TFS

I just wanted to let you know that I've been enjoying reading your daily post and learning along with each new project you feature. We don't have Target or Michael's or Roberts or any large stamp/scrapbook stores on our islands or even any dollar spot - whatever that is - or even any dollar stores. We have to rely on Ben Franklin or some of the smaller shops or basically on-line buying. Guess this is Paradise without all the important stores. But I'm surviving with my supply of stamping paraphrenalia and appreciate all that I have. Should you by some miracle pull my name, please let it go to someone who may need it more. Aloha. yum

Katie Renz said...

We have a target, but the dollar section is rather sad. Beautiful card! I finally just received your t-shirt set and am hoping for chance to get to it soon.

Brenda said...

Wow, what a great card. I love the paper, I need to put it on my ever growing list of things I need. TFS

Lee (LuvLee on SCS) said...

This is soooo prefect!! I LOVE that paper!!! Okay, so the drawback of living in a small mountain town? Can't get to town often enough for the great deals at the Dollar Spot!!! LOL

Janet said...

Cute card! I would LOVE to win some of this great Fall paper. Thanks for the chance.

Mary Duffek said...

lovey the background paper and your card is too darling!

Courtney said...

No Target close to home. Nearest one is more than an hour away and with gas prices I'm not going to often. Love the papaer though and have a similar stamp.

The card is awesome! That paper is so vibrant. I'm in Canada and we don't have Target's here. Everytime I see a blog entry talk about Target, I admit I get a little jealous. I do go and ogle their website on a regular basis though.
Have a great day, Tisha

Wendi K said...
