You R My Love Story!

Good morning, sunshines!!!

I've been up since VERY early this morning... tons on my mind and a long to-do list.  Then, the sunshine peeked through my cozy apartment windows and I said, "I better take a few pictures now before the clouds set in again..."  So here I am, sharing a "LOVE" card I made last night.  I actually stamped the Maya Road stamp set (another gift from Tiffany) a few weeks ago.  I wasn't sure how I would use it though.  And last night, I decided it was time to put it to good use.  I gathered various scrap papers from my other crafts that I had cut out, and I am lovin' the outcome of repurposing scraps!  I have more "scraps of papers" that I put to very good use on another card, but I'm saving that one for another day... (;  Anyway, here is today's card.  I hope you enjoy!

Like I already mentioned before, the typewriter and the "you r my love story" sentiment I composed are from the Maya Road stamp set "Tell Your Story".  I LOVE this mini stamp set and again, I want to thank my gal pal, Tiffany for sending me such a cutie!!! :D  Once I had adhered everything to the layers of paper I had assembled (I attempted to create my own polaroid), I kept feeling like there was something else missing... even after adding that May Arts rustic twine and hot pink rhinestone, there was just too much white space on the bottom.  That's when I decided to play around with other stamp sets to create a second sentiment that would go with the "love" theme of the card.  I pulled out my Paper Smooches set (from last year) and stamped "You & Me" using my VersaFine ink (onyx black).  The turquoise pattern paper is from Lawn Fawn and the hot pink card stock is by Recollections, which my crafty BFF (a.k.a Kisha) gave me the last time we crafted together (:  To finish off the card, I thought I would make it pop more by adding faux stitches around the "polaroid" frame with my white gel pen.

I hope you've enjoyed this cute lovey-dovey card.  And I hope I have inspired you to craft some love themed cards! (:  Thank you SO much for stopping by today and looking!  Have a FANTABULOUS day and may GOD richly bless you! Xoxoxo
