Give a little LoVe

Hey y'all! Long time no post! I guess I took the week off! It was productive though...I did a TON of spring cleaning that took until summer to get around to. I feel quite accomplished now :)

So back to my regularly scheduled program of crafting and creating. One of the huge benefits of cleaning out and downsizing my STUFF around the house is that I have finally accomplished clearing a space to have my sewing machine out again. I have been seriously jonesing for some stitched paper accents and FINALLY! the time has come! I have a feeling there will be a whole lotta stitchin' going on here for a while....

I have lots of cards to make this month for so many special celebrations starting with a wedding and two anniversaries THIS weekend. One of those anniversaries is my own (11 years) and the other is my parents' (35 years). And a dear friend is starting her first day of many happy anniversaries on Saturday as she takes her vows with the one she loves. I haven't added a sentiment to this card yet since I haven't decided WHO will get it but I think a simply stamped sentiment inside will do. The colors on the card all arrived with the use of this yummy striped paper from CTMH. My sweet friend, Leigh, is a consultant for CTMH {click HERE for her website} and she dropped off a lovely goody bag chock full of paper, embellishments and a stamp set to me last week. She knows how to make a girl's heart go pitter patter...thanks girlie! THAT was so sweet and I had to make something with it right away! With the paper heart in place, it was a cinch to arrange buttons around the edge and stitch with embroidery floss. Simple, but I love it!

I'm so glad you stopped by today! It means the world to me! I hope you give and receive a little love today :)
