Love Ya

Happy Monday to you! I was digging through my paper collections and found lots of the Making Memories "Noteworthy" line that I insisted on getting in large quantities because my LSS sold out of the first batch. Now several years later, I remember buying it but not so much using it. It is a horrible addiction. Paper lovers you know how it feels when you find that paper collection that is impossible to put down. It causes your mind to spark with creativity and you fear you won't have enough to complete a project so you overbuy? Yep, I tend to do this which the paper companies love me for. If the food supply dries up I could survive off of paper for years. Wouldn't it be grand if the papers you bought were a reflection of a tasty meal? All those polka dots were actually a yummy sorbet with fruit? Oh heaven.
and onto my card because clearly I am craving a treat and it should not be. Based on Laura's sketch #57 for 2S4Y:
What did I use? A Michael's stamp with a SU mini heart stamped on top. Some vintage lace along with Making Memories velvet strip ribbon. I finally pulled my Smooch pearl accents out and added it to the edges of the craft cardstock and filled in the sentiment as well. I distressed the entire card with SU Saffron and added a few pink "x's" to tack the ribbon down. A Foofala button and Bazzill rhinestone finished it off.
Thanks for looking!

Super cute! I have the whole Noteworthly line...both of them. They put another in different colors out later down the raod. I still have them and I am hoarding them! I cant bring myself to use too much of it. It is my favorite of all time. :)

Too funny, reading your comments today about paper hoarding. Yesterday I cleaned out my studio and came up with 3 12x12 cropper hopper paper holders full of 12x12 paper that I just had to have. Some unopened or only one or two sheets used because I didn't want to run out! Rest assured I still kept plenty of paper in my stash. Been looking through your blog and love your work! Thanks for sharing.

The pink stitches on the ribbon steal the show! I am a paper hoarder trying to come to terms with my problem. So glad to know I am not alone. Thanks for stopping by Asleep on the Couch and leaving a comment. Hope you will visit again.
