Love to love you baby

Yeehaw! The weekend is here for me! Yep, I lucked into a Friday off so it's a long weekend that I don't want to waste. :)
Though before I can start in on things I want to work on I've got to make the trip to town for groceries and other necessities, sigh. Oh well, at least I can fit in a visit to the Target scrappy aisle and maybe even check out Craft Warehouse too... so it's not a total loss. ;)

Not that I need any new crafty goodness. I'm really trying to use up what I have, but I have a hard time resisting the pull of all that fun stuff. Maybe I'll surprise myself and just look... not buy. I'll let ya know how that goes tomorrow.

So my card today is another quick one... I'm on quite the roll with those this week... what really made it fast was starting off the entire thing with a pre-made card base from the new Making Memories Love Struck line then throwing on a really BIG flower LOL! And those purrrty gem swirls are more goodies that Rachel sent me... they definitely bring up the sparkle and shine factor in this card. ;)
And I so picture Eva as a little rosebud fairy, just waiting to blossom into a lovely rose for a special Valentine bouquet... awwwwwwww... :)

Ok, ok time to hit the road.

This is very pretty Amy! I bought a huge poinsetta flower to make a christmas card with one of these fairies in the middle of it, just like this, but I couldn't get it to look right. Maybe I'll revisit that idea and try again! Thanks for the inspiration.
