love grows

That is one of my fav 'love' sentiments and after 23 years of marriage I can say with a fairly high degree of certainty it is true. I think hubby thinks the same because when I showed him the four valentine's day cards I made and asked him to pick a fav, this was it! You know what that means don't you! It's his, and will remain in my stash forever.

I started by stamping hearty grass onto a twinchie...yup, I used a twinchie here! Have you ever stamped on them, they are absolutely a dream to colour on whether you use copics or pencils. I did use copics for the hearts and grass blades, but pencils for the shading. And again, I used the Basic Grey sugar rush paper for my background. Why? Well, it was on the table, and the colours worked!

Then I cut out 'love grows' with a quickutz alphabet called Rollerskate, but I'm thinking now I should have used a more contemporary font. Oh well...can't turn back now! I cut them out on some white adhesive backed Quickutz chipboard that I bought a while back on a visit to the Stamping Bella HQ's. It is always fun making a trip to that store because I always  find little treasures that make their way home with me. This was one of them. Finally I finished it up with some glitter in the grass and ranger glossy accents on the hearts. It is one of the cards that won't be making the trip to CHA.

Did I say CHA? Well, you must know that Emily is setting up booth there in less than a couple weeks and although I won't be there in person, I will most definitely be there in spirit and just plopped a whole pile of cards in the mail to her today for display. Actually, all of the babes will have cards on display at her booth so if you are there, pop in and say hi to Emily for me...and tell her I wish I was there! Give my cards some love too won't you! I'm really gonna miss some of them!

Later, Linda.
