i got to play a bit in the lady cave this weekend...just thought i'd share what i made. they are for a 'secret sister' i am swapping with during the whole year. i hope she doesn't know of my little ol blog...or there is no surprise! fingers crossed!
the flowers were stamped on the SU! white shimmer paper...my new addiction! i used stazon ink and my aqua painter filled with alcohol instead of water. i prefer using the alcohol...it dries much faster. and when you are fussy cutting, staying in the lines is not an issue! i love pairing bright colors with navy blue...always a winning combination!!
again...a bit of fussy cutting, i know, but not a problem when you're watching Gilmore Girls and eating M&Ms!! this card is much cleaner than i am known for creating, and i love it!
tomorrow is valentine's day. everyone who knows me knows i love love. but the funny thing is, i'm not a huge fan of the day. i really think there is too much pressure to make something special out of an idea i would like to see happen every day.
i'm not a party pooper.
i just love the little bits of love i receive when it's not expected...when my husband calls me in the middle of the day just to tell me how beautiful i am or how proud of me he is. or how about my son buying me 44 oz of diet pepsi from wawa first thing in the morning, when he knows i crave it most (remember, this is a judgement-free zone!). love is when my daughter sends me a text that she wishes i was there, in texas, sharing some margaritas!
h. jackson brown, jr., a well known american author once wrote words to live by..."love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own." wow. so. simple.
i'd like to think i love in that way...
thank you for stopping by today,
i appreciate you.
until next time,
peace be with you.
