Woohoo for Saturday!! Oh how I love Saturdays! It's the one day a week we get to sleep in! Although, NO ONE seems to be able to make our four year old under stand that, because he still gets up at the crack of dawn regardless of the day! All I can say is that I'm eternally grateful to my husband...who IS a morning person (unlike me, LOL!!) and gets up with our early rising munchkin! :-)
Speaking of my DH...it's been a while since I've sent a "just because" card to his parents! It's hard for them (and us) because they still live in Switzerland and don't get to see our kids very often. We had planned on going over there last year, but our daughter was not in a condition where she could travel very far. Hopefully if everything goes well (and airlines don't raise the prices any more) we will be going over there this summer! Anyway, I made this card for them (I will tuck a few photos of the kiddos in there as well)...
When I need to make a special card...but want to do it quickly, my Waltzingmouse Stamps never disappoint! So many of Claire's sets are designed to work with Nestabilities (including the Seasons of Love set I used here), which means I spend less time cutting! :-)
After embossing the large heart and "Love You" sentiment (both are from the Seasons of Love set), I used my Heart Nestabilities to to cut/emboss around the image. I then used my Scalloped Heart Nestabilities to create a red heart mat.
Here's a cloe-up shot so you can see the tiny border of Stickles I added around the "Love You" sentiment! Isn't sparkle just the BEST? It makes me so happy! :-)
For embellishments, I added a button tied up with some string, some stitching on the patterned paper (it's from my stash of Basic Grey paper), and some white faux stitch marks along the edges of the Kraft card base! All in all, this card took very little time to make! :-)
Well, I'm off to tackle the mountain of laundry that has accumulated in my laundry room! :-) I hope you all enjoy your weekend! ~Laurie
