Hugs to you...

Ok, I admit it. There's something very familiar about this card...hmmmmmm....well, why reinvent the wheel. I really liked that heart doily and that little girl stamp {together} so I tried it again with these Pink Paislee papers. This one is my favorite. These papers make me happy. Maybe it's the unexpected color combo or the pretty flowers? I'm a sucker for pretty flowers.

I mailed this card and the little mailbox from yesterday's post to my favorite sister-in-law. She lives in the land of never-ending snow and I'm hoping these will cheer her up! I filled that mailbox full of various chocolates. You can't imagine how much that thing holds. It should hold her over for awhile. At least until Easter when I make another one of these, stuff it full of more chocolate and ship it off. What? I still have 10 of these things left to decorate. She'll get one for every holiday this year. Well, I might have to rethink that...shipping chocolate from Georgia in July is not such a great idea.

Here's a few details on the card: Pink Paislee Sweetness papers, SU Greeting Card Kids stamp, Quickutz Fiesta and Phoebe,Spellbinders labels,renaissance hearts and scalloped hearts dies, Martha Stewart paper rose, pearls and felt heart, SU cardstock.

My plan is to spend the rest of the weekend blissfully working away on my vintage mini with no interruptions. We'll see how far I get with that...

Enjoy your weekend!
