Gina K Previews Begin!


It's time for this month's Gina K Designs previews!  There are some really fabulous stamp sets this release, so it's gonna be a fun week!  There'll be lots of great cards to see over the next few days, and then even more for the release party on Thursday evening!  Hope you'll be able to mark your calendar and join us!

My card for today features Melanie's set, Where Your Heart Is.  This set really speaks volumes to me!  As the wife of a retired Navy guy, I can't tell you how many prayers I sent heavenward for him and for our family during his deployments throughout his years of service, and that is only one reason I chose this particular greeting.  This set is filled with sentiments for just such an occasion, although the interchangeable greetings would be perfect for lots of other situations as well.  It will be perfect for cards for those who serve at church or in the community.  Isn't this universally understood image absolutely adorable!?

Notes:
Pure Luxury Cardstock (pumpkin spice, cranberry tart)
Where Your Heart Is
Basic Grey Curio Designer Paper
Memento Ink
Copic markers
Tim Holtz tea-dye distress ink
Nestabilities rectangles
Pure Luxury gold-lined sheer ribbon
border punch
red rhinestones

Enjoy visiting the blogs of these designers to see cards previewing Melanie's set, Where Your Heart Is and/or Rupa's set, Ready, Set, Snow!  I hope to see you again tomorrow for another preview!
