Love Card

Hi There!

What's this? Another card? You betcha!
Why is it that the "simple" cards take so much time to finish? I know...because I'm never sure what to leave off, so I fiddle and futz with it for way too long. LOL I still think this one needs "something," but cannot figure out what will look good. I ran out of time, so I thought I'd share and get your take.
I got myself a new Cricut Cartridge today. It's the Lacy Labels Cricut Lite that is available at Walmart. I've had my eye on it for a little while and got a little cash from a friend for doing something nice for her. I didn't want to take the cash, but she insisted and she specifically said to get something just for me.I didn't want to upset/offend her by not accepting her "donation." So, I did. And I just love the cuts on this cart. All the pieces you see in the focal image are from that cartridge. No, they weren't all shown together, they are a mix and match of different cuts. I ran the glittery piece through my Xyron and added Martha Stewart glitter for a bit of bling. I think I will get some good use out of this cartridge. It seems like a good one for card making and for well, labels. LOL

Thanks for stopping by. I sure appreciate the visit and hope you are having a terrific day.

Pretty card!! You could put a slit in the fold and wrap a ribbon around it towards the bottom. Just a thought.
I have that cartridge too. Only played with it once.
Inspired!! :)

Jeanne,

I love your LOVE card. (no pun intended) It's so fun to spend money on yourself sometimes. You're like me and will spend your time helping and making things for other people. Sometimes we forget to take of us. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful projects with us.

Love,
Tamara

Jeanne, because you've already got the glittery going, how about just adding three red stick-on "jewels" atop three existing dots two or three rows up in the lower right?

This is so fantastic Jeanne. I absolutely love it. And I've also been eyeing that cartridge at Walmart.

Have a great Saturday.
