I called this post Pieces of Love not to be profound or anything, but because the card was made from scraps of DSP, and it says 'Love'. Deep, I know.
After all the furniture moving yesterday, I planned to make (and DID make) a Valentine's Day card using some of my cool stash of Tessa Ann's buttons from The Button Shop (tessaann.etsy.com). Here's my card:
I decided to let the button drive the card, and since it was kinda hot pink, I opted for Pink Passion, which is an SU color I very rarely touch... it's just a little too pink for me. But I did use it last night, and I think it looks fiiiine. Of course, I cut it with some black. :-) The papers are from the Night & Day Specialty pack (from the Holiday Mini); the sentiment is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages; the fancy-schmancy shape behind the sentiment is a Nestie; and the skinny ribbon is from my stash. I thought about blinging it up a little, but then decided against it so the button can be the STAR.
I made two of these and they'll end up in my etsy store as soon as I get them bagged and tagged and posted.
I am going to the Post Office today (sure hope it's open), then I'm actually going to buy some food. That's just crazy talk, I know, but you see, I have these mushrooms that are just crying to be stuffed, and I wanted to make another batch of spinach-artichoke dip to stuff them, and I have no more canned artichokes. 'Tis certainly tough to do without the main ingredient, so shop, I must.
After I get all that errand stuff out of the way, I hope to make some more Valentine's Day cards, so I should have something crafty to share with you later.
Thanks for stopping by!
