Love Birds

And here's a Valentine from me! If you know me, you know I love polka dots. So I don't think I need to tell you how happy this card makes me!!! I went pretty wacky with the polkies!!! LOL The fun layout is Beate's latest Weekend Sketch Challenge. Yippee! I so missed Beate's sketches, I'm so happy she's ready to get them going again. I decided to make a big card - it's 9x4", which fits perfectly into a business-sized envelope. The image is from American Art Stamp, one of their Valentine & Easter releases called Love Nest. Sooo sweet. Or should I say, sooo tweet? hee hee I'm proud of myself for using some more of my Stampin' Up hodgepodge hardware - I have it in pretty much all of the options they've offered the past few years, but I've hardly used it! This marks the official end of my package of fun, swirly rhinestones. boo hoo I'll have to go and find me some more of those, they are just too much fun! Ok I better get this posted and get crackin' - Daddy is back in town today and I convinced him to take both kiddos to the store and then to lunch, so I have some things I need to ACCOMPLISH today - number one being the organization of my DISASTER of a stamp space (which I refer to as The Stamp Cave, fyi - because my desk is in my walk-in closet and the lighting leaves much to be desired). So a very Happy Valentine's Day to you - may you eat lots of chocolate today. :-) Thanks for stopping by!
