    Oh how pretty. What a subtle and classy color combo here.Nice materials.I like the unique looking punch out heart. Of course,those two pretty flat oval stones really stand out. So cool and smooth. I’d be touching those all day.

    Judy, glad your back! I knew this was yours the minute I saw it. I also love your contrasting color combinations that give such ‘punch’ to your designs. Your classic chain back is always a winner too. Love the rustic feel of this one! :)

    Beadaholic – Thanks! I had things to do that kept be from beading, and then I couldn’t get back to it. Hope I’m back at it.

    Super cool. I like the variety of colors and shapes of stones. It really keeps the eye moving. I have a Lipstick Ranch heart in another shape, but this one is so cool too. It’s fun using the iron in a project.
