More Love Notes (VLVFEB2011)

It's February and that means new Viva La Verve sketches; another great one by Amber.  Sadly, it has taken me 2 evenings to create this card.  :(  Just not enough time!

We have a semi-free weekend coming up; so I'm hoping to get some serious crafting done!  Of course, that means the laundry & house cleaning fairies need to arrive Saturday morning at 8 a.m. SHARP!  :D

This card contains some of my favorite things - distressing, ribbon (scrumptious ribbon, even our youngest daughter said "that ribbon looks yummy - just like chocolate" - LOL), buttons, Chocolate Baker's Twine, decorative nestie and love!

I'm still using up my DP - this one is a year or two old (**gasp**) by Basic Grey; I have always loved it and I just have bits and pieces left, but I'm working to use them.  The DP was layered on a decorative square nestie which was mounted with dimensionals onto the heart embossed background paper.  Stamps are from Verve Visual's Love Notes - great, great stamp set!

I also used Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger - red and pink colors with white FUDGE HEARTS - **LOVE**! (picture below)

Thanks for stopping by; hope you've had a great week!  Hugs, ~M.
