I have been blogging off and on since 2009 and I'm still amazed at how quickly I get swept away in blog land. The other day I was looking at Freshly Made Sketches blog and fell in love with Cindy Lowell's card so I popped over to her blog to leave some love and noticed that she had another post that day for the Card Concept so I scrolled down and clicked on that blog and WOW!!!! I fell in love with this challenge immediately. So instead of doing the chores and getting a grocery list ready for the day I decided to play along.

My style is Clean & Layered.

I was inspired by the wood grain and the word love.  I wanted to create cards using project life cards which are from the Dreaming Edition (lots of soft colors) and I knew I had some scraps of wood grain in my bin so it was perfect. Used my cricut to cut out the "loves" added some red cardstock and glitter tape, punch out some tiny hearts using the owl punch from Stampin Up. And to finish the cards off I used clear and gold wink of stella to add the glitter. I love that they are both flat enough for my kids to mail to Grandparents without extra postage.


  1. So glad you found the challenge and played along! Chores can always wait, can't they? Your cards are awesome, and I just love that touch of glitter..cute! Thanks for playing along at The Card Concept!

  2. I echo Laurie's sentiments- so thankful that you found us at The Card Concept and played along with our Love Challenge :-) Both cards are fantastic and I am sure that the Grandparents who receive these are going to be thrilled- thanks again for sharing!

  3. Both cards are just lovely! Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept!
