Heart Cards -- fun use of Washi tape

This week at FROSTED DESIGNS our challenge is:
Washi tape, ribbon, twine...
Use at least 2
So on my cards, I used all of them!!
To make the hearts:  I took a piece of white cardstock and just put rows of the different Red Washi tapes.  Then I cut out the large one and punched the 2 on the smaller card.

Pretty Pigskin Pic

This week at SKETCHES IN THYME we have this fun sketch:

And I'll tell you what the journaling is about...basically I did a football photo shoot with Joseph in the backyard.  When he saw this photo printed, he adamantly told me that I was not allowed to scrapbook it since the pose looked "girly".  So after about a month, I finally asked him if I could scrap it IF I did by making the subject of the layout the story about he doesn't like the you go buddy!!!  Thanks for being a good sport!
