Yesterday was the first day I ventured out with my girls after a whole week hiding indoors due to the icy roads and sidewalks - even the local grocery store was closed! Oh, my! The South surely
doesn't know is not prepared to handle snowy conditions. They said on TV that the city of Atlanta has only 2! plows - did you see how much snow we had?!! Incredible. But then again, it's never NEVER like this.
Anywhooo ... i went to the grocery store and surprise, surprise my engine light went off - so I took my car to the shop - from 11am till 4pm!!! Thank goodness Barnes and Noble was only short walking distance - with nice warm Starbucks ... he he he ... My daughter (a little spoiled brat - as she is) was surprised we had to walk. I had to explain to her that when I was a child - living in Slovakia - we only had to walk and walk some more. She was in shock! Ha! I should do this more often. We take regular walks around our neighborhood, but never further than that. So here is another challenge for this year - walk beyond our neighborhood's boundaries!
Today's card was such a joy to make! I just loooooove love love the LOVE themed cards. My favorite thing to create. And since I've never used those gorgeous rose ribbons from American Craft I wanted to use them and what a better theme than lovey-dovey.
The Front View
Tilda is colored with Copics & ProMarkers and sparkled up with Stickles (Star Dust). I made couple dimensional touches to give the card a little more "POP" effect.

I've got the new Making Memories J t'Adore papers and they ARE BEAUTIFUL!!! Surely wish I've got some more. I used the Spellbinders - Labels no. Ten and sewed the outside edges. The rhinestones are from Recollections by Michaels and flowers are by Prima. I added a little bit of sparkly chalk to the edges and Distress Ink.
