To Love and Be Loved
Another week of struggling with the colours at the Play Date Cafe. I don't know why they are giving me such a hard time but I am determined to conquer them! After much pondering of supplies I decided to play with some PTI stamps for this card. Since A Passion for Papertrey's current challenge is Valentine's I went for a love theme and ended up with a 2-challenges-for-the-price-of-one card. After several design attempts (see below for an alternate) I was finally happy with this one. I used my Sew Easy tool for the first time and I think I'm going to like playing with it!
It's even colder today than it was yesterday - hasn't gotten out of the 50s. Brrr! Gonna have to bundle up for Monday Night BBQ!
