Thinking of You 54

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, February 15, 2011 @ 10:50 PM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day ~ maybe spending it with your loved ones or doing something that you love ie: stamping/papercrafting :) My hubby, Scott and I had the day off together so we just lounged around home, went out to lunch and exchanged gifts. This weekend we went to see the movie "Just Go With It" ~ have you seen it? Oh my gosh, we had some really good belly laughs :)
 I had some crafty me time tonight, so pulled out some pretty patterned paper from the girl's paperie and made this card. I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from JustRite Stampers Fancy Tags then using a die template from JustRite Stampers Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit to create the tag. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Card Patterns Sketch 102,
I made a butterfly embellishment using a die template from S3-146 Butterflies Two and layered it on a sweet doily using S5-041 Floral Doily Motifs.
That's all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow for the Friends of  Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz showing off my buttons! :) LOL

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Stampers Fancy Tags
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S5-041 Floral Doily Motifs, S4-114 Standard Circles LG, S3-146 Butterflies Two, GC-001 Grand Calibur, JustRite Stampers Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit
Patterned Paper: the girl's paperie
