Fusion - Wooden Hearts

How is everybody doing?  Mr. J has been off work a few extra days this week so we've been having extra "family time" lol!  He works in construction and work is a little slow right now.  We're making the best of it - running errands together and having lunch at restaurants - it's like we're dating again!!  He's getting educated on the cost of groceries - (that's usually my job), and it's nice having him help me carry everything into the house.  I know he'll be missing in action again before I know it! 

A new challenge begins today at Fusion Card Challenge  - this one is called Wooden Hearts.   You know the drill - you can take inspiration from the photo or the sketch, or both!!  I love the purple flowers in the photo, but wasn't in the mood for the wood and grey.  Winter has been bitter here the past few weeks, and I need some bright colors to keep me happy and warm!  If I can't play out side I will make my own little paradise!  

The big heart is from Memory Box, and the smaller gold heart is from Cheery Lynn - Don't they look beautiful together?
A little bling always makes me happy.  I added a swirl of gems to fill the empty space under the heart.  The swirl draws your eye back to the hearts.  
TIP:  Save money buy purchasing larger sheets of gem flourishes - just snip off one swirl at a time to embellish your designs.
