New Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

It's that time again, time for a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.  
Isn't it wonderful! So fitting for Valentines day coming up quickly. 

 I wanted to go along with the pinking shear cut on the edge of the heart so I used a Cricut cartridge to cut a zig zag shape.  I cut out a heart from the middle to match the heart shape.  I also kept with the color of the little felt heart in the inspiration piece.  Because that little heart has a homemade look to it, I used some amazing papers that have a homey look from BasicGrey. 

Is that little lightbulb stamp just too cute? I thought it made for a cute little middle to my creation and it even gave it a sweet little sentiment.
Gotta share a photo too...

The crocus are blooming in my yard! The first sight of bulbs blooming makes me so happy!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
