L'Amour

Love.
I love simple and today is simple! Mostly, I will be hanging with the new KING of the house, Calvin. He found the avocado pit in our king cake last night! :-) Jason happily passed on the crown and title. Good times! I love my boys! They are continual reminders to live one day at a time...just soaking it all in.

Here is a simple card. It uses the Lizzie Anne Designs L'Amour set. I added some flourish chipboard stickers to the tail and BUTTONS. I know, I am completely destroying my reputation. :-)

Stamps: L'Amour
Ink: memento
Paper: PTI cardstock, bittersweet pp
Accessories: bittersweet chipboard, may arts ribbon, buttons

I still can't believe that one of my cards is on the cover (do you see gratitude=joy?) AND there are more inside..surrounded by card making divas! :-) A huge THANK YOU to Paper Crafts! :-)
