Hearts and Butterflies

First off, I wanted to play along with The Play Date Cafe challenge.
 I picked up my new little stamp set from PaperTrey, Inc.  The set includes the cutest little hearts plus that adorable little sentiment.
 I used some great stamp pads from Clearsnap that helped me use that great color scheme.
 Here is that Play Date Cafe combo.
 Next off, I used the current A Blog Named Hero challenge to use kraft.
 I knew I wanted to use one of my favorite stamp pads on my card. I pulled out a few Hero Arts stamps for my card.
 I love the color of the Clearsnap Fluid Chalk Creamy Brown, I think it looks like kraft.  The other brown for the woodgrain and the writing stamp is Chestnut Roan Fluid chalk. 
Gotta share a couple photos...
 We scheduled a stop at a water play park we had heard about. What a super fun outing on a HOT day.

Different fountains went off at different times, you can tell this was FUN!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
