Hope You're Feeling Loved...

Hello my crafty friends, I am back with another Cupid Valentine card. I think this one will go to Bret. 

Pretty much a CASe of a card Loll made a long while back, you can see it here. I had the ink smooshed paper in my backgrounds box, just a small piece if it, so it worked out well for this. I rubbed some gold gilding wax lightly over the smooshed ink background and the black heart in Cupids hand.  I got my panel on crooked, sigh. It wouldn't be a card of mine if something wasn't wrong with it. LOL 

Again, not much to this card but I do love how it turned out. Sorry again for the blurriness, I should have taken another photo, but it looked good or so I thought. Old eyes I guess. LOL 

As always. thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to come and see what I'm up to. I should be by to visit you soon as well. 

Crafty Hugs,

If it's crooked I can't see it. And besides that, it'd just make it that more special too! It'll be a great card for Bret. So pretty and I love the sentiment too!

A beautiful CASE of Loll's card Brenda... I never call anything crooked, I call it adding character!! Love this, and I hope Bret does also!

I just adore this sweet little card! I love how Cupid's wings are out of the box and that sentiment is so heart-warming too! I think at times we are our own worst critics because I don't see anything crooked! It's a perfect use of that red snippet you found, and that tiny golden heart finishes this off perfectly! Bret should love this one! I know I do :)

LOVE your card with the gorgeous smooshed background, Brenda. Adding the gold makes it even more special. Bret is going to love this! Thanks for the shout out. I think that might have been the only card I made with this die. :) xx

A darling reminder of a mother's love, Brenda! Another wonderful, smooshed background and I'm very happy to see this sweet little cupid again - gold stars for that gold gilded heart!

What a simply gorgeous design, Brenda! The red and gold make such a rich background for Cupid to sit on and I'm sure Brett will love it. The sentiment is just beautiful and I haven't come across that one before.
Hope you are well.

Imperfections are a part of life. People are not going to notice unless alerted to them. Most artwork has them and it is what often makes them perfect. This is just that, PERFECT. Great card.
