all you need is love! =)

Goodmorning! I just finished up another anniversary card that my family requested:

I feel like this is a very Dawn McVey type of layout (which is awesome because I love her style!) and I just loooooooove the fancy flourishes dies! I think, aside from Berry Sorbet, Autumn Rose is now my favorite pink-y color. I love the look of Rasberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst, etc, but I just don't find myself reaching for them while creating. I used the woodgrain impression plate on the white card base, but it's a bit hard to see.

I have one more anniversary card left to make, so I think I'll try my hand on this week's MIM with Nicole! =) But for now, I'm off to study for a test I have on thursday. Have a wonderful day peeps! Happy crafting.

Having missed PTI's blog hop on the 25th, I was super excited to see Amber's Do-Over Blog Hop was still open! her work is truly gooooorrrggeeeoouuusss and ingenious to boot. I can relate to how she feels about being competitive with crafting; but what it really comes down to is just showing off what you created while doing something you love. =)

I am incredibly embarrassed to show my project, but I remember it was created with good intentions! hahaha. The colors, smudging, and layout just now make me go 'ugh!'. But thanks to Amber, I can redeem myself a whee bit. :D

I carried over the use of Fancy Flourishes, as well as the generalized layout (sentiment on the left, image focus on the right, etc). And I am SUPER excited to show it off! I just love these stamps so much!

Don't forget to check out the other awesome projects submitted at Amber's Blog! Happy Weekend and Happy Crafting! =)
