You & Me...

    Hi guys,
     I hope you have all had a great weekend.  I had a very nice but quick one,  I also had good intentions of getting a few cards made, but alas that didn't really happen. :O)
     I did however manage to get this simple, but very cute Valentine's Card made for Madison to give to her boyfriend.  As they have only been dating just a few weeks she wanted it to be a sweet card, but not overly mushy.  lol..
     At first I was going to pull out a couple of my Greeting Farm stamps, but then I found this awesome card by Leslie Webster in the Jan/Feb. 2013 Paper crafts magazine.  I thought is was just perfect when I ran across it, and when I showed it to Maddie she thought so as well.
     On Leslie's card she stitched around the outside border, but I really didn't want to bring out my machine and I didn't have any brown thread, so I grabbed my Momento pen and made some faux stitches that I think turned out ok, cut I think I would have liked to have sewed it.  Ggggrrr.  
     All in all this was a really fun card to put together and it really didn't take me too long to do it either.  I even pulled out my heart shaped Coluzzle and made a couple of hearts for the center of my card.  It is always fun for me when I get a chance to pull out tools that I just had to have and really haven't used in forever.  :O)  If you want to check out Leslie's card  remember it is in the Jan/Feb. 2013 issue of Paper crafts magazine on page 33.  I hope it is ok to CASE this card as I really think the whole card is just so sweet.
    Have a wonderful Monday everyone and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G
