LOVE

Hi Everyone,

I have been busy making cards (what else would I make...?), but first I want to greet my new members:

Gaylynn from Neat Nook Creations
Lilian from The Leaf Studio
Marie from Algodao Tao Doce

Please pay those lovely Ladies a visit and check out their blogs - I promise you  - its worth your time  and you'll be utterly delighted! Perhaps you even have time to leave them some love and tell them I sent you!

Because I have to love cards to share I thought I pick the famous love sculpture by Robert Indiana as my welcome picture for my wonderful new members. I am so happy you joined. Thank you so much! You are getting me closer to that magic 200 number :)


You can find this sculpture in NYC on 6th Ave and 55th street. I love those bold colors!

And now my cards:



You see my inspiration - right?The die is by Marianne and the YOU is from Neat&Tangled. Its a one layer card, since I did it as inlaid die cuts. And I made it for this month  One Layer Simplicity challenge - Attractive opposites. Hopefully it counts - red and blue are almost opposite on the color wheel, but you could also say large letters, small letters or die cuts and stamping - that's an opposite -right???


Since I love this die cut so much - I have it now in my collection for almost one year, but did not yet have a chance to use it, (got it after Valentine's Day was over) both cards are also going into the NBUS challenge over at CASology. You all know what that means - never before used schtuff, coined by the famous Darnell Knauss. I am also linking it up with Colour me...! - you can see the color graphics below.

You probably can guess what the next card is for - that's right - this week's Muse challenge:


Michele Ferguson made this wonderful card for us to CASE. I went with the negative space, the orangy heart and the grey font. The sentiment is by Paper Smooches. I went over it with a grey Wink of Stella pen and it shimmers beautifully.


And I am adding those cards to Virginia's view - clean slate - the first one is one layer and the second one is white on white
Also adding this card to the Uniko challenge - Love and Friendship
And Darnells NBUS challenge #3- never before used schtuff

     



And lastly - are you still with me? I wanted to share some pics I made with my son, when he was little and climbed around on that love sculpture - back then one could do that - its not allowed anymore.....


Happy stamping!
