I (Heart) You!!!

Sorry the lighting is totally horrible on this card, I blame the cat! Prior to taking pics using my desk as my background I used the kitchen island to do my pics but usually my nosy little kitty wake up and decide to play with my cards or background. Anyways, I love making my own card backgrounds and here is a perfect example of me doing what I love. This has to be one of my favorite and hands down most used stamp sets (French Foliage) since I first layed my hands on it back in Oct. I love the small block of script, the vainy faded tipped leaf and the water/paint splotches...this is a all around perfect stamp set in my eyes. I mean I use this thing religiously, how could one not?!?

...deep breath, okay enough of the love ballad to a stamp set here is what I used:
  • Stamps: French Foliage (SU!), Mini Wood Block Alphabet (Hero Arts), Frames with a Flourish (SU!)
  • Inks: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler (SU!-Classics)
  • I embossed the heart with gold but I'm not sure who or where that powder came from.
Thanks for looking,

ps. want to meet the kitty I was talking about?

That is Mirepoix (pronounced Meeer-pwaw), notice what has little bum just landed on, can you see it?
If you can't I'll tell you, its this card! I guess he thought it would make for a great chair while he ate his dinner. 


  1. Great card! I love the tone on tone look. The kitty is adorable too, although she looks like you are disturbing her! LOL I found your blog through and I am now following it.

  2. Just found your blog via Crafty Storage, I love all your storage ideas, I had a good laugh when I read the blog about you having to sit on the 8ft. table to make it fit, you are funny! Love the card, have a great day!

  3. This is a gorgeous card... your kitty is cute too (but I'm allergic)!

    I would like to invite you to visit my blog:
    I'm pretty new to this so there's not a lot on there yet, I'm pretty chicken about posting creations, but I'm trying! I hope having some blog friends will help push me to post more!

    Thank you so much for sharing your card!!!
