Love Life

Hi there!  Happy Friday!  Sorry I've been neglecting the old blog this week.  Laurie came to visit for a few days and we were so busy giggling and shopping and watching movies that I never had a spare moment to post.  So here I am on Friday afternoon, posting the card I had planned to post Tuesday!  :)

My card uses the new Text Objects set, featuring the Gandhi quote, "Where there is love there is life."  That is so true, isn't it?  The world just comes alive when we're in the presence of love.  Whether it's the love of my sweetheart (our 13th anniversary is on Monday so I'm feeling a little sentimental) or the love and support of dear friends, I count myself truly blessed to be living and loving life!

The paper on this card is from the Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 collection.  I stamped the background and matching quote stamp from Text Objects directly on the dotted paper.  The hearts are stamped, cut out, and then I hand trimmed black mats for them.  The little horizontal border is the fabulous new Apron Border die from The Cat's Pajamas.  I also stamped the LOVE stamp in Baja Breeze on a circle, then the scripted life over the top in black and matted with the TCP Snowflake die, adding a few Jade Ice flatback pearl accents from Pizzazz Aplenty to set things off.

Okay, that's all from me today.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
