Welcome to the "Heart Warming" Blog Hop!
We're so happy you could join us today!  If you came from Anita, then you are in the right place.  If not, please start at Melanie's blog, because we don't want you to miss any of the fun!

My project today is a card I created for a Valentine swap I participated in at Swap-Bot.  My partner was a guy in Germany, so I had to create a masculine card.  I usually make lovey-dovey ones for my sons and husband, so this one was a little bit of a challenge for me!

The stitching on the side is hand-drawn.  The stamp set is hearts2love from The {Stamps} of Life; I used brown ink to stamp with, but the brand and specific color escapes me right now.  All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out!

Next on the hop is Robin S!

I agree with everyone else that your hand stitching is awesome! I had to take a double look, lol.

Love the card, great colors. Also best hand drawn stitching, thought it was a stamp at first.
Great hopping with you

The card is a great male card, but the hand drawn stitching is wonderful. TFS.
