Love You!

Hey there friends! How in the world is today Thursday, and where has this week gone!? It's been a quick one for me! We're trying to stay healthy....the cough and sniffles have started to move through the kids and I'm doing my best to keep them at bay! The change in the weather always brings a few of these things to my family. But, the leaves are falling off the trees, and on the walk to school this morning, my son informed me that it really was fall, "look at all the leaves on the ground!"

So, onto today's card! I have a girlfriend that is need of a little extra love this week...she's having a rough time right now and I wanted to make something fun to send her in the mail. So, my card for today was started!
I started with my vanilla card basee. I used my fiskars apron border punch on a layer of chocolate chip cardstock and then mounted it on my card. I used a piece of an oldie but GOODIE, stampin' up's retired Au Chocolate dsp. I love this paper...it is so beautiful! It is so fun to get intot that stash of things that have taken a back seat for a while!! I used sticky strip to attach my dusty durango ribbon and then ruffled it a bit...which makes it a good contestant in the current Moxie Fab Challenge.

I used my blossom nestabilities to cut three flowers out of dusty durango and chocolate chip cardstock. I did a number on them, distressing them, then put them together with a chocolate chip brad. I attached it to my card and then moved to my sentiment.

I wanted to say "love you" but didn't really have the right stamp to use...so I chose to go with some alphabet stickers. These are from American Crafts. They were origionally white, but I went over them with my dusty durango stampin' write marker to make them match just perfect! I went over them a couple of times--to get a nice solid look.

I hope it will bring a smile to her face and help her know how much I love her and am thinking about her!! Thanks for stopping by today...have a great one!!
