just a little love note....

Thanks for all the kind comments on my "Call Me!" card. I appreciate it!

I want to share another little card today that I made last week.

First....have you seen the new "ditto" line by Hampton Arts, at Michaels? I love, love, love it!!
Here's a fun video that shows most of the line. (The best part is...they frequently run these items for around $2.)


The other day, I got this background stamp for $2.50...what a steal! I really like the fun circles....

I decided this was the perfect size to make a little love note card so I got some kraft cardstock and cut it to 3.5x5 and folded it in half.
I made it this size to fit in a #1 envelope which uses a 5.5 x 5.5 piece of cardstock.

My finished card is 3.5 wide x 2.5 tall.
I inked up my stamp and then laid the folded card on top, pressing down all over to make the design.
Then I used my watercolor pencils to color in each circle and my watercolor brush to smudge them.
I cut this cute little sentiment on my Silhouette Cameo using a Karla Dudley cut and a "u" from a font.

Now I'm all ready to write a sweet little note to someone and leave them a little happy. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
