Inspirational card

Once is Enough !

Love these sentiments. I have waited for sometime now, to get an apt sketch to highlight this sentiment and voila,  Sweet Sunday came up with such a lovely sketch. I used bright cheerful colored stripes and a purple ribbon with two tiny bows to highlight the ribbon or it would be lost in the colored stripes. The accents on the right are woodsies. Gosh Love those !

Here’s my card : such inspirational sentiments, isnt it ?  Thats what I like about card making, not only is it a way of being able to express creativity, but its a beautiful channel of bringing two people closer. We share sentiments, we speak volumes with may be just one sentence or two but it brings us closer, It helps in making up relationships and binding ones that were wavering off.  Isnt that just what cards are supposed to do.

Believe it or not ! I still have cards from my childhood !! They are special. Some for the sentiments shared by the giver and some for the occasions they shared. Some although arent all that good, I have framed them for their actual worth, which is priceless ! They are memories, which no amount of money can bring back.

Ok ok ok so I got all senti !! Remember I told you ” I am that emotional fool! ” So anyways where were we ??? Oh yeah, my card !!!!

Love messages ~ cards

Love Message 4~ with all my heart.

One Card ~ 4 challenges !! wow. thats a first for me 🙂

‘I love you with all my heart’ is a free digi stamp. I know I should start owing up to the digi making blogs owners that really help the likes of me, with all their goody freebies. So from today, I am going to try and find those lovely invisible friends who have so generously donated their digi stamps to us.  I’d really like for them to know how grateful I am for their gorgeous images and fantastic talent. Perhaps I will make a seperate post to name some of their sites once I have located them.

Playing with Polka dots is fun but can be challenging especially if its red, which in many cases, it is generally. I have used two cute glittery hearts which I have had for long but used it twice today!  a satin checkered ribbon which has been lying around my stash like forever , and an embossed green base for the sentiment oval. All in all, did not want to experiment much becoz I wished the focus to remain on the sentiment and beside which the polka dots are very dominating in the entire card. So Voila !
