I was listening to the radio as I drove my daughter to school and came back home. The topic the DJs and their guest was discussing was “romance” and whether or not it is dead. Based on the conversation, it seems there is some confusion as to what constitutes romance vs. just good manners. One woman, who called in, talked about receiving the occasional hand written love letter in the mail from her boyfriend. The gals on the program loved this. The guy thought it too much trouble to write by hand, find a stamp and then wait for the girl to receive it. What do you think? Do you take the time to make a card and write a note to your special someone just because?
I think today’s card using Flower Patch and PCCCS140 is a perfect “just because” card.
I went more with the lines of the sketch rather than a strict interpretation of the shapes. For instance, the pair of leaves off to the bottom left replace the banners and the vertical strip of leaves is in place of the vertical rectangle.
I had lots of fun creating the appearance of dimension by stamping on the card base and aligning it with the same image on the focal layer and die cut circle.
The sentiment was masked so that the only part of it stamped was the “be you”. A perfect thing to say to someone you find special.
On another note,
It looks as if the Butterflies Framelits will be in by Friday. I’ll keep you updated as I know you’ve been patiently waiting to get your hands on them.
