"Lazy Summer" Tilda and Blog Candy I Won!

Well, I'm back again (surprised?) like I said I would, to share with you another "heart fold" card I made with my Sizzix.  Someone asked if it works in the Cuttlebug, and I'm not 100% sure, but I would say "no" only because a friend wanted to use a Sizzix die and it did not fit (thickness) in the Cuttlebug.  I may be wrong, but maybe someone out there can help us.  Okay, so I hope I don't bore you with these heart fold cards, but I need to get my "money's worth" and not use my dies just once (wink!).  Here is another card and I wanted you see how the heart flips up:






The base of my card is a deep purple Bazzill CS.  I also die-cut a heart piece from the dotted Bazzill (lavender) and also one from white CS (message/jotting area).  I adhered the lavender over the black, hence the back of the heart when opened is the deep purple.  I put some two-way glue on the back of the white CS, matched it up to the heart base, then closed the card so (hopefully) the white would be in line with the front...but, it's slightly off!
I stamped the "Love Muffin" 4 times, once on white CS, once on the DP, once on QuicKutz "Fuzzy Brown" adhesive, and once on QuicKutz "Fuzzy White" (adhesive) and cut them out and paper pieced them on the base image.  I stamped a sentiment on a Magnolia tag but I can't remember the name of this.  I used the MS
eyelet heart punch and punched out the purple heart, added a flower and curled the stem.  The inside sentiments are from the new SU! "Well Scripted" stamp set.  That's it for this card. 

And now, to share my good fortune in winning a Birthday Blog Candy giveaway from Joy of A Place To Be Me.  Joy is known as the "shaker queen" so go check her out and leave her some love.  Wow!  I was gladly surprised to find a huge box filled with these goodies, and a very pretty card and candy box!  Thank you so much, Joy, and I know you had a wonderful Birthday, surrounded by all your friends and family. 

Thank you for stopping by again, and hopefully tomorrow I will have another card to share with you. We're just about mid-way through the week and soon the weekend will be upon us.  I will be blog hopping to see all your wonderful creations.  I'm having some problems with my blog tonight so I apologize if things look weird.  Until the next time, stay safe, warm (East Coast peeps) and keep sharing the love.
