Feelin' the Love

Is it possible to say--without sounding arrogant--that this card is SO cute? I love it because I used several products I just adore.

For starters, I used one of my new favorite colors, Taken with Teal. I never thought I'd be saying that. When I first started stamping, I thought Taken with Teal was one of the ugliest colors in the SU line. I just recently fell in love with it and had to buy some.


I also got to use more textured cardstock and some American Crafts ribbon--I {heart} their stuff.

So, you know I think it's cute. Now I wanna know what YOU think!

Stamps: Short & Sweet (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Bazzill white

Ink: Taken with Teal
Accessories: Heidi Swapp ghost heart, American Crafts ribbon, brad (unknown), corner rounder punch

I have to agree Ann, this is one stinkin' cute card! I love that little heart hung up there all by itself:) Such a sweet card!

I definitely think it's ok to think your card is cute. Especially when it is! I don't use much teal either but it looks great against the white.

LOVE IT! Isn't it amazing how our taste in color changes? I used to hate orange, and just recently redecorated a bathroom in it. It's the happiest room in my house. Go figure. Your card is beautifully CAS...that ribbon is just perfect!

I luv that you luv your card, and so do I! Sometimes I spend so much time and then come away saying to myself, well it's just ok. When we come up with something we like, we all need to strut our stuff! Way to go girlfriend!

Peace and Luv,

Angie Tieman said...

You're right! It is SO cute!!! And no, you don't sound arrogant at all, it is what it is!! Lol! I know what you mean, though, sometimes certain cards just make you so happy and you can't believe how cute they are!

I know what you mean about colors too, funny how our *tastes* change! When I first started with SU my favorite combo I used all the time was Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, and Mellow Moss, and now I don't remember when I used that one last!
