Have you ever just gone one way with something and had this idea and then gone off in a completely different direction. That's what happened with this.

I had all these little tags that I had made one day just to try them out different sizes and had reinforced the holes at the top with stamped file folder leftovers.. The tags where also just a mop up index card from a dylusions spray day...  I stuck the tags on some dripped on and painted music paper and used my new spot stamp from Typo on some other watercolour paper, its a cute little stamp that I am going to get a lot of use out of.. Some Tim Holtz washi tape is on there and I also used 2 prima stamps for some little stamping details here and there. Sewed up and down on it and this was all going to go on another completely different page.. But then something else caught my eye and thought the heart looked so much better with it.. The backgrounds on these are both done with Dylusion sprays and when I do that I always get about 6 big index cards of leftovers to play with so the heart got chopped out of one of those and I doodled some swirls for it to sit on.. More stamping with 2 Prima stamps with Tim Holtz peacock feathers distress ink and some black Momento ink. I had a lot of fun stitching all over it randomly and liked the way it turned out.. So thought this was the perfect wording for this, even though I had just used this phrase on another page, I had definitely trusted my heart.

Going to enter this over at Simon says stamp blog Wednesday challenge its anything goes.

Have a great day
Sandy :)
