i {simply} love you

I just wanted to pop in to share with you a quick Valentine's Day or any day to say "love you" card.

I received all of my new Mini Occasions Catalog toys a few weeks ago and have been just fiddling a little with this and that to figure out how it all works. For this card, I used the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die for the main focus. It's truly very simply, but it works for me!

Want to know a little secret? Occasionally (Ha! Who am I kidding?! Much more than occasionally...) I make a mistake or try something and don't like it. In the past I've been known to rip apart the card and scrap it all together, but I'm trying REALLY HARD not to go to drastic measures and instead just work with the mistakes. Well I made a mistake on this card in the top right corner (I was trying something and ended up not liking it AT. ALL.) But instead of just giving up, I adapted...thus the reason I have a folded corner with a mini library clip and a linen thread bow. I'm thinking no one would have ever known about my mess up, but telling you this means that it's OK to make those mistakes...just work with them and try a little something different before you rip the card to shreds!

Remember our new motto for the New Year...

Don't over-think the process, just do it!
