You Better Shape Up...'cause I need a man...

And My Heart Is Set On You...

I LOVE the movie husband would truly hate me if I had the soundtrack because how can you not sing along at the top of your lungs!!!! 

The theme this week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is "You Better Shape Up"
As soon as I read those words I started did too didn't you?!
You are supposed to create a "shaped" card and I knew right away what I wanted to do...
continue singing :)

I used the Cricut Craft Room to weld the heart and the U together and then I copied and pasted it, lined them up together and used the flip key, then made sure that all of it was welded...

I wanted to stick with the whole "Grease" theme and I remember that Sandy was in leather when she was singing this leather wouldn't have worked with the heart so I tried to make the red heart look like leather. I embossed the heart with the Cuttlebug (I cannot remember the name of the folder but it's a bunch of little random sized squares.) After that I inked the paper with Cranberry Ink then covered it with Liquid Glass. I just put spots of the Liquid Glass all over the heart and then rubbed it in with my finger...messy...yes...but so worth it!!! If you haven't used this product I highly recommend you try dries super fast and it's not sticky at all!!!

Most everything I used is Close To My Heart...although I did use some Stickles glitter glue (another favorite of mine!)

Thanks for looking and if it's been a while...go watch Grease and sing along...really it's kind of therapeutic...just like crafting :)

Be sure to go over to Heart 2 Heart to check out all the other cool shapes!
