I heart you!

Hello friends! I hope you are doing well! Our long weekend has just started and we're all sorts of excited for a little family fun this weekend! Yea for days off from school! I got a fun box from the UPS man today, he brought me some DELICIOUS new papers! They are from My Minds Eye, from the Love Me Do collection...oh my word! You know when you get some new products and you just can't leave them alone!? Well, this is one of those collections! It happens to be in one of my favorite color combinations...Auqa, Red and Curshed Curry in my palette...simply divine. I think these papers will be great year round, nothing that screams "valentine's day" I'm really excited!

As soon as my daughter found the box on my front porch and brought it up to me...I was in love. I started cutting and mixing this great paper, and it was SO much fun! So, I'll quit the gabbing and get to my sharing! This is my take for the CPS sketch 153, that is the current sketch on their blog.

As mentioned above, I used Aqua Mist, Real Red and Crushed Curry cardstock on my card. My card is Aqua Mist and then I used two of the delicous papers from MME. I used a strip of crushed currry and a fiskars border punch to cover the seams of the papers and then a nice bit of tulle...sorry, I'm stuck!

I used my nestabilities, scallop and classic hearts. I mounted the large heart and then added the two smaller ones. I used a little bit of red bling...from Martha Stewart, and my little Ruby was chomping at the bit to get to those!;). My sentiment was stamped in real red ink. The sentiment says "i heart you", and is in the So Much Love stamp set from Lizzie Anne Designs. I covered the "heart" with a little heart I punched out with my new little SU heart punch.

I went to the post office and mailed all my valentines today--a full book of stamps worth, and then a few extra packages and got home and realized that I only have 1 valentine left in my stash! YEA! Isn't that fun? I'm excited for our loved ones to find some love in their mailbox! My niece that is at college will be so excited to get some happy mail---I'm doing good on my resolution to get more happy mail into my loved ones mailboxes!!

I hope you have a wonderful day! Make it great!
