You stole a Pizza my heart - FMS119

Happy Sunday - I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  I had sometime this afternoon today play with this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I just purchased this super cute stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs - Pizza my Heart, and I couldn't wait to ink it up!  

For those of you who don't family has been in the pizza business in Chicago for 40 years, and this image reminded me so much of my Father! I have four sisters, and I don't think there was one of us who didn't send a heart shaped pizza to one of our boyfriends when we were younger! lol

DP's from Echo Park/yours Truly and MME/Cupid's Arrow, cardstock from PTI, embossing folder from Lifetime Crafts.
