You Make My Heart Melt {4 CC #173}

Welcome to 4 Crafty Chicks Thursday!! One more week until the big day...are you ready?! Before you read any further, I just wanted to send a HUGE shout out to my wonderful life-long friend, LEANNE, as it is her Birthday on Saturday! Have a wonderful day, friend! Hope your parcel makes it to you in time *wink*

Miss Tamie is our hostess-with-da-mostess this week and she is issuing a technique challenge:

4 CCC #173 {Distressing}

A couple weeks ago, I made a card VERY similar to this one, actually...I made - that one and this one! I chose "inking" as my distressing technique and decided that this would be my Hubby's Christmas card this year.

Stamps: Warm Hearts (Paper Smooches)
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Snowflake DSP (Bo Bunny)
Accessories: Paper Smooches snowflake dies, 'Lil Inker stitched mat die, sponge dauber, gems

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
