A Little Love

It seems like my mind is turning to Valentine’s Day cards even though the new year hasn’t even arrived yet!   I wonder what that is all about? All I know is that when inspiration strikes, it’s best just to go with it!

Today’s card was created when one such wave of inspiration hit me last week!

Sentiment:  The Stamps of Life

I used a piece of leftover embossed cardstock from another project and added a simple red, punched heart.  I stamped a very simple sentiment and added two tiny red gemstones (just because I have a thing for gemstones).  After looking at the card for a moment, I decided to round one of the lower corners before calling it good!

I hope you had a great weekend!  We had a very lazy one for a change.  On Saturday, DH took DS1 to look at and purchase a used mountain bike.  This one has gears, so I’m figuring they are getting a bit more serious about the whole mountain biking thing.  I just haven’t quite figured out the “mountain” part yet.  This is the Midwest we’re talking about!

Have a magnificent Monday!

    I love how uberCAS this is, Melissa. So crisp and that heart just throbs off the page. (Moan, I can't help myself!) I grew up in Iowa and as I was reading the part about the mountain bike, I thought the same thing, “I wonder where she lives in the Midwest where there are mountains to ride?!” LOL!
