Best of Love

Happy Saturday, and welcome to my blog!  Most mornings when I get up, I check my mail with a cup of coffee in hand.  As my dad used to tell me, you need two cups of coffee in the morning, one for each leg!  So by now I'd be on my second cup!  :-)

This week's Utah Divas International sketch was designed by team member Tammy Fite, who has done all of the February sketches. You can find links to all of the cards and designers here.

Here's what I was inspired to create:

All the details~

  • Stamps ~ Best of Love
  • Papers ~ Very Vanilla
  • Inks ~  Primrose Petals, Pink Pirouette
  •  Accessories ~ Big Shot, Petals a Plenty folder, Large Scallop Edgelits, Hearts collection framelits, Delicate Designs folders, stampin' dimensionals
My inspiration for the card came from a piece of paper I had embossed last year.  I inked the Petals a Plenty folder with Pink Pirouette ink and ran it through the Big Shot.  I had a couple of pieces left over and hung on to them because I thought they were so pretty.  What do you think?  I am really pleased with how this came out.  And I love the new February Best of Love stamp set (132987, $14.95).  It contains so many great images, including the sweet little "love you much." 

As I type this, we are in the midst of an East Coast blizzard!  It is so nice to be inside of a warm house with electricity!  After losing power for a week after Hurricane Sandy, I don't take my electricity for granted.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be well!
