Where There Is Love

Hi friends! We've been in the middle of a snowpocalypse here in Idaho, and the boys have been going stir crazy with only one day in school last week due to weather.  I've shoveled our driveway about 17 times in the past week, moving everything from mountains of snow to sheets of slushy ice.  Now everything is wet and rainy, our street is already starting to flood and both boys are sick. The forecast is for moisture all week long, so it seems the fun has only just begun. Definitely a crazy start to the year.


I did sneak in a little time yesterday afternoon while the boys were wrapped up in a game of solitaire and made a two-fer card.  I missed Wednesday's Card Concept 64 challenge, so I combined it with today's Mojo Monday 479 sketch.


The papers are scraps I had on my desk totally fit the inspiration photo and the style of the lettering in the graphic made me think of the More than Love set.  I stamped the quote in black, then cut with a stitched square and matted with shiny gold paper.  I stamped the heart in crimson ink, then colored a bit with a blender pen.  The smaller heart is embossed in gold and colored with the crimson ink and a blender pen.  I hand cut the smaller heart and die cut the larger one with the Wavy Hearts Die Set.  A bit of black ribbon, a Flourished Trim Die to separate my layers and a shimmery golden sticker that was lying on my desk was the final touch on this card which is part classy and elegant and part clean and layered.


Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you have a fabulous week.

  9. This is gorgeous....how wonderful that the items on your desk worked right into the inspiration photo. Prayers for your family. It is so hard when our little ones are sick, and being snowed in makes it even tougher.
