More Valentines

I have been playing around a little with my new Unity stamps from the August 2010 Kit of The Month: All You Need, it has so many beautiful stamps .  So I made another two cards to add to the Valentine pile I need to have ready by next week.

It's an extremely simple design, quite a CAS card really.

Paper: PTI, Neenah Solar White, Hero Arts Layering Paper
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Punch Chalk Ink, Viva Pink Glimmer Mist
Stamps: Unity

I used Kraft cardstcok from PTI as my card base.  The  centre panel was first sprayed with a little Glimmer Mist and then I stamped the sentiment, part in Versafine Onyx Black and the other in Punch Chalk Ink from Hero Arts.  The hearts were stamped with the same chalk ink.  I matted that centre panel onto Hero Arts matching Layering papers and voila, done!

Now, do I admit to you the fopar I was about to make whilst putting this card together!  It's a bit embarrassing, but I'm a little under the weather at the moment so I guess it's ok that I misread the sentiment!  Well, in this kit the "Love" is seperate from the "all you  need is".  And when I designed the card in my head, the sentiment was going to read "Love is all you need".  So, I stamped "Love" and then was about to stamp the second portion of the sentiment when I realised that the more I looked at it, the more it did not seem right!  I was even thinking of phoning Unity saying that I had spotted an error on their stamp (forgive me Unity!)!  Man, that could really have been an embarassing moment!  After a few delayed moments I eventually figured it out!  You see, it's true that saying, the world IS NOT as WE see it!

Wishing you all an awesome day!

What a hoot Brenda... we often see and read what we want rather than what is actually there!!! But your cards turned out wonderful in the end and that's all that matters!!!!!!!! Hope you feel better in time for the marathon.
