Good Morning! I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend. Sorry I haven't been around, but life takes turns and one must follow those turns or get lost - I'm sure you all know what I mean. For a look at a beautiful blog and a list of wonderful encouragement that we all need reminders of so often please visit Becca's blog and scroll down through her beautiful creations to her January 8, 2009 post - you will not regret the time spent here. I printed mine out and am going to frame it and put it on the wall where I sit at my computer. Sometimes I just have to remember to breathe.
Today's card is for one of my favorite holidays - Valentine's Day. I love this little boy and girl image sitting under the umbrella. This is a very simple and quick card to make - simply form your standard A2 size top fold card, choose your vintage image, cut it out and mount in on a co-ordinating CS - Crafty Secrets (see link in sidebar) is a great source - although I do not believe this specific one came from there. I'm not giving you measurements because it's all based on the size of your image. Run a piece of black CS through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder, cut to the appropriate size, glue your image panel to your CB panel and then to your card. I then used a Stardust Gelly Roll pen to glitter it up a bit - the area I especially like is the accenting of the dots - I'm not sure if you can see it really well in the pic, but IRL it's really pretty - that's all there is to it - it goes really fast and makes a cute Valentine.
I have some more as I've been working to get items into the Holiday Shop here in town and so I actually have quite a few items to post. Until then, take care and please spend at least a little time today doing something you love and tell someone else how much you love them
