Cupid Kisses

Hi my crafty friends, hope your weekend has been a great one and your week is off to a good start. 

I have had this cupid die in my stash since 2019 and I'm just now using this cutie! I think I forgot about him. Shameful I know. It was a gift from a sweet blogging friend, she knows who she is and I am thankful for her and this little die. I decided I wanted him to sit on some letters. But really couldn't think of what word besides love. So that is what I went with. I think he looks so cute sitting on the "L" with his foot on the "O". I used some leftover background DIO smooshed paper I had made long ago for my letters. I did stack my letters, 4 thick and the cupid is two thick, his heart is just one layer. Not much to this card, but think it is cute. 

As always, thanks for stopping by, I know your time is precious. Hopefully I've been by to check out what you have been up to as well. 

Crafty hugs,

There doesn't need to be anything else on the card. It is perfect just "as is". It says it all. Excellent! Clean and simple.
