I woke up this morning to the tune of my dog whistling through his nose and the smell of fresh coffee. Given that I'm on vacation this week, and loving every moment of the time off I won't even complain about the whining dog. The coffee made up for it and anyway, getting out of bed a little earlier gave me a few moments with the hubby who is grumbling a bit at having to go to work when Josh and I get to stay home. Since he made the coffee, I did my best to sympathize with him. Poor baby, and all that. I figure it's the least I can do since I figure I'll be in my jammies for a good bit of the morning!
Today's card is an anniversary card I made a week or so ago but it's one that would adapt to a Valentine pretty easily and since we're now looking at all the fun of Valentines, I thought it would be a good one to get the ball rolling.
My card base is a half sheet of Pirouette Pink that I layered with a panel of Sending Love Specialty DSP. I cut a strip of coordinating paper from the same pack and added a scalloped edge of Neenah Baronial Ivory to the bottom and then tied a bit of ivory organdy ribbon around the length of it. Next, I stamped the little dotted flower trio from Three for You in Chocolate Chip on a scrap of Pirouette Pink, punched them out with my 3/8 inch circle punch and then adhered them to the right end of the dsp strip. I also added three tiny little gems to the center of each flower. Finally, I stamped just the "I love you the most" portion of the sentiment from Love Matters on a scrap of Neenah Baronial Ivory and punched it out with the Word Window punch. I layered it on a piece of Pirouette Pink and hand trimmed it. Three little pink gems underline the "love" portion of the sentiment and I used a glue dot and a small foam dimensional to adhere it to the card just under the center of my bow. Very, very simple, but oh so sweet too!
