Hmmm, having some issues with WordPress tonight!  I’ve lost my post twice and the formatting is a little wonky…

I managed to squeeze in an hour in my craft room tonight – productivity = 1 card and a big mess on my worktops!

I had a layout in my head that I came up with earlier today and was anxious to try it out.  It didn’t quite turn out as awesome as it was in my mind – I think maybe the banner is a little too wide (I tried skinnier and didn’t like it…probably should have split the difference).

 I’m going to call it a win though because I managed to come up with something a little different from my usual cards and actually completed one tonight!

I used a Penny Black stamp that I bought last year, some of the American Crafts XOXO patterned paper from the pack I used yesterday and a Michael’s $1 stamp sentiment – it’s my favourite Valentine’s sentiment because it’s small, quick to stamp and clean and it’s suitable for a Valentine, Anniversary, or “I love you” card.  

I also snuck in a few rhinestones ’cause that’s how I roll now.
