Just Add Ink #152

Welcome to another Just Add Ink challenge and this week our challenge idea comes from Kim Badelt, She wants us to just add "HEARTS"....considering Valentines Day is next week, the timing is perfect for all of those "Mushy" cards for your other half, that's if you are into that of course!
Hubby and l...not so much!  He claims that Valentines Day is everyday....Hmmm, me thinks he just
You can add your hearts for any occasion, not just Valentines Day and as you can see from the varied projects the DT came up with, hearts are such an easy addition to your projects.
Anyway, l have two heart ideas to share with you this week....The first one is very clean & simple using some new Stampin-Up goodies and a masking technique.

My second project is a little more detailed.  I must say a huge "Thank You" to Tina Gillespie, for generously sending me a lovely stack of these cute little calendars and to Patrice Easton for starting my calendar obsession, when she included some in my "Secret Santa" gift...:0)

Well l hope you can find some time to play along and share your heart ideas with us.........
