XOXO

I need to work on some birthday cards, yet here I am showing you the Valentine I just made. What is it about having to do something that makes me want to procrastinate so much?

Anyhoo, I used Jen's Sketch for You to Try for my layout. I'm trying to use both new and old goodies on my cards, so this card incorporates some retired SU paper with my new Heidi Swapp mirrored heart. I also pulled out my new SU rub-ons to add the sentiment to the mirror.

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa dp, retired dp (SU)
Accessories: Heidi Swapp mirror, Chit Chat rub-ons (SU), rhinestones (Me & My Big Ideas)

Cute Vday card. I like that the main color is chocolate chip and not the traditional all pink.

Love this, Ann!

Yeah, why DO we want to do everything but what we HAVE to do?!?

I'm needing to make Valentines Day cards and I'm playing around with ... other junk.

At least I'm sharing this illness with you, my friend!

~Hugs, Deb
