i heart u


yup! another post... two in one day, I know, crazy! Well, as they say, when it rains it pours ;) Bear with me with the lighting here... I'm still working on getting a good light box set up for night shoots!

Anyhoo.... so this is for two challenges. The lovely Tiff has started posting her own sketches-{Sketchy Sundays}! Super exciting! And she's a CAS girl after my own heart, I just knew I had to play along! This is a card for the hubby. He's currently at the commissary getting our groceries, and I know he doesn't always like doing that right after work, annnnd I haven't made him a card in a long time, so I figured it's time I show him the love ;) He always loves when I make him cards, hehe. We have a small stockpile. I think one day, when we have a permanent home after the Army, I might frame all the cards he's kept from me... anyways, I digress.

So yea, that's the card, and I decided to use the colors from {The Play Date Cafe}! I missed the submit date, but I have a feeling I'll be using this combo again, I like it!

Hehe, funny story with the ribbon I used... I cut the edges probably about 3 times, but they kept fraying, so I finally gave up and intentionally frayed them a bunch. I distressed the heart a bit so the ribbon edges kinda blended in a bit... like I was intentionally going for the "distressed" look all around... shhhh, don't tell anyone k?
