Lots of love

Hey, hey, hey!

We got a bunch of new snow dumped on us yesterday so I decided to spend my day off holed up inside and just play. I'm tellin' you, it felt really good to take it easy. And even though I spent most of the afternoon cleaning off my desk and organizing things, some how that never feels like a chore in my crafty room. ;)
This card is actually a direct result of that desk cleaning because I used left over scrap pieces of this yummy Sweet Nectar paper that I used on some of my past preview cards instead of sticking them in a scrap bag or, heaven forbid, toss them in the trash! And as an added bonus I had new stamps arrive from TGF so of course I had to ink one up for this before putting them away. I used the new Fancy Anya with a bit of tweaking... I wiped away her curl and closed eyes before stamping and then I used my light box to trace on Sweater Anya's smilie eyes. What can I say... I loves me some open eyes. :)
Once I added the epoxy heart sticker to her hands I think she makes for a pretty cute little Valentine image. Then it was just embellishing with more bits and bobs I found while cleaning and voila! Like I said before, I had a lot of fun with this. And lucky me, I've got another day off today so if we get more snow I just may continue playing and cleaning to my hearts content... sounds like a plan to me! LOL

Smooches! :)

Love the colors and your way of tweaking stamps amazes me... The most I've ever done is to use only part of a sentiment...
