Eek! Valentine's Day is just under a fortnight away (that's two weeks in old money). So best get a wriggle on my Valentine's Day crafting. You know me...always a day late and a dollar short. It also happens to be my wedding anniversary too on that day. The way I look at it, I have at least until the 13th nearing to midnight to get The Man, The Myth, The Legend's card done. That's heaps of time, right? So might procrastinate with other projects until then. *wink*
It's been a while since I tossed a card into The Shabby Tea Room for consideration, and I thought, why not? This week's theme is based on the inspiration photo below with a mail or a postage theme. How happy was I when I read that? Like the proverbial pig in poop I was. So no excuse needed to get crafting. Off I trotted.
Out came one of my favorite stamps from Unity's Provincial Collection called Carte Postal. Love. I also relished the opportunity to use my favorite flourish of all time: Hero Art's Fabulous Flourish. Bliss. Then I set it all on my most beloved colored cardstock from Papertrey Ink called Sweet Blush. Talk about a dream walking. Then, just for good measure, I dressed the card with the stamps and die cuts from Papertrey Ink's Larger Than Life Set, Tiny Tags I (the Love sentiment on the wee Tim Holtz tag), and the fun stamp from the delightful Postmarks set also from Papertrey Ink. Heaven.
Well that's this card done and dusted. Thanks so much for stopping by. It's always such a thrill when you do. Here's to a lovely day full of happy mail for us all!
