I love you right up to the moon - and back!

Today I'm participating in something FUN! I'm joining this round of the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop!! Yay! Here is my card:


I used one of my all-time favorite Taylored Expressions sets - The Places You'll Go. I loved this set the moment I saw it, and then was lucky enough to win it as my Audrey prize one week over at the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! The super sweet Sankari (PIPs forever!) sent it to me along with one of her AMAZING creations - I'm so lucky to own a Sankari original!!

My color inspiration for this card was provided by Taylor:


This was my other source of inspiration:


That's my sweet boy Carter! The reason I loved this set so much is because of the image I used, and the quote "I love you right up to the moon - and back." Carter and I often have I love you more contests. I tell him I love him to the moon and back. He says he loves me to Mars and back. I say I love him to the sun and back. He says he loves me to AFRICA and back! Because, you know, Africa is much farther away than the sun... :-) So, this stamp just makes me smile - just like my sweet Carter makes me smile!



Thanks for stopping by today!
