Hello friends and a very happy Sunday to all! Today I bring you a card that was created for Heartfelt Creations from the All Geared Up Collection. I had know idea when I first laid my eyes on this collection that there would be so many different ways you could use gears. Once I started looking through these beautiful pattern papers, the stamps and dies, the ideas just started flowing, and when I saw the finished projects I was quite impressed. Once you see what the other gals created with this set, you too will be saying WOW!
