Love Always


Today is Thursday which means more projects from the My Thoughts Exactly's Design Team.
It's Thienly and Lenae's turn today. I decided to add a simple card to their projects...

I sat at my desk with the intention of doing something simple, but it was one of those days when my brain doesn't want to connect... There was no way I was using my Cricut, and I was going in all kind of different directions till I finally took a deep breath and pulled out my heart dies... :-D
I made the card with my daughter in mind, because I think kids need to be repeated sometimes that we love them no matter what... ;-)
I cut out some hearts from an old novel and the big red one is made of felt. See, this is why I love my dies, I can cut though different types of materials, it's faster than setting up the Cricut, and it is rather foolproof. The Cricut completely tore the novel pages no matter what settings I tried in the past... :-(



For my sentiment I used the Birds & Bees set, and mixed several stamps, making my own little saying by inking only parts of them. How versatile is that?... This is a pun set but so much more than that. It's fun to try to come up with more and more sayings... :-D

Don't forget to visit Alyssa, Thienly and Lenae's blogs today... :-)

Happy Bastille Day to my french family and friends! :-)

I love this Bee Bee! You are more creative with my stamps than I am :) And I love how you used the pages from the novel, it looks so cool. Brian likes it too by the way :) I am pretty sure your card was his favorite of the bunch :) And you keep making me want to buy those dies! But then I would need to buy a cuttlebug :/ Bah! lol.

The card turned out beautiful. I love the simplicity of it all. I agree that kids needs us to repeat frequently that we love them no matter what.

Hello Bee, I love the way you mixed the sentiments to make a non-punny phrase! The text hearts are fab too :)
