Love You!!

Hello everyone! Back to the real world today--the 4 day weekend was nice but life goes on, right? Did everyone watch or take part in the Inauguration Events yesterday here in the US? I watched and enjoyed every minute of it---I could feel the excitement in the air and felt that maybe, just maybe, this hope and patriotism WILL bring about change for our nation. I listened to Obama's speech over & over again, and just relished in what he had to say and how eloquently he said it---it was a joy to take part in this historical event here in the USofA!! We shall see what the future holds for us....but as for now onto today's projects cuz' you didn't come here to listen to my political views, I'm sure (lol)!

Today is Whatchadoin' Wednesday over at the Storage Units, Ink & More blog---this week is challenge #24 and it was inspired by a photo (you can check it out on the blog). I was inspired to create this "Love Book" card using all the colors in the photo "room". All the stamps used were from SUINK's "Will You Be My Valentine" and "Sweet Things" sets and the dp is from Crate Paper. Basically I cut two cards using my Scalloped Circle Nestabilities and put them together--I stapled the center and then wrapped this yummy PTI ribbon around the center to cover the staple & tied off in a bow.

Each page has a white nestabilitiy heart cut-out on it for continuity(I punched each scallop so it looks more like a doily). I left open spaces so I could write some "sweet" messages to my hubby! Those smaller hearts are from the new Martha Stewart heart punch that I picked up at Michaels.

On this page, I stamped the lil' sweet tart hearts randomly in the background (love those) and then popped up this lil' envie with a love message in it. The shimmer is from Shimmerz which I used on most of the images along with Stardust Stickles too!

This is the final page of the book--I used my CB swiss dots folder on a few of the cs pieces. Just a fun way to express lots of different love notes for a special someone---and a nice keepsake as well. Easy to put together and fun to make too! Remember to stop by the SUINK blog to see the rest of the DT's projects for today's challenge too! If you decide to join in please upload to an online gallery using the keyword "suinkwwc24"--we'd love to see!!
If you haven't pre-ordered the NEW Spring Kit from Whiff of Joy---whatcha' waiting for! You only have till January 26th to do so--its a great value for 10 Elisabeth Bell spring stamps (and they're all beautiful)!
Only 2 days till I leave for CHA in California--I'm super nervous still about the flight but I know it will all be a BLAST!! See ya back here tomorrow with some new projects!
