With a Thankful Heart

Hello! Today has been a good day so far. How about your day? What have you been up to? 

Here's a heart card I made for a few challenges going on right now out in bloggyland. A friend of mine gave me the link to Mary's Cardz TV post with a video for the sizes, and now I can't find the link. Oh well, just want you to know that this style of card was inspired by Mary.

I saw a very cool idea while surfing blogland the other day. I had to pin one of the craft projects. I knew I wanted to use that idea this week. The idea? Putting Washi tape on a paperclip and using it as a bookmark. Cool, huh? Some people are so creative. And I hoard my Washi Tape, so I thought this will be a great reason to use it since I love to read! And then I saw a challenge that is asking you to use paper fasteners on your project. Hello! I couldn't wait to make this project!
