This is for the STAMPIN' SISTERS IN CHRIST CHALLENGE #72. Clear Dollar Stamps is the sponsor this week. So I just had to play.

The theme for this week's challenge is NEW. Grace is hostessing and she has a great post so be sure to check out the above link. So keeping with the theme.....I used my NEW HEART....I got these scallop Nestabilities for Christmas. When I think of a new heart....I think of when I was baptized...the change that took place in my heart. I think of repentance which is a daily thing...I have a new heart to turn away from that sin. I am sooooooooooooooooo not perfect....but turning my heart to Heavenly Father in prayer and accepting his will....I become a better person a NEW person.
This heart shaped pencil holder is also for tonights mini VSN on SCS for FEB11VSNMINI2. To make a heart shaped base project.
I used the new release LOVING CRITTERS from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS. I cut out two hearts and adhered them together for each the front and the back. Then sponged the edges and embossed them with the heart embossing folder. I used 1/16" dimensional tape on the edges of the top of the heart and adhered them together. The pencil just slides in there. Works Great. I stamped my pig, colored him with Copics, cut him out and sponged the edges. I punched out the label..stamped my sentiment and adhered to the pig and put a piece of dimensional tap close to the pig under the sentiment. That's all there is to it.

Lisa that project is just too darn cute! I'm jealous of your nestabilities, I did that challenge and had to cut out my heart freehand, not the same effect, ha~! So glad you were able to come alongside us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, we value your thoughts and your artwork.
Hope to see you next week!
