Love letters

Hello, hello!

So did anyone else get a bit misty during last night's Glee? I'm not ashamed to admit that I had to grab a Kleenex or two there towards the end. It was such a good show and I am on pins and needles about next week's finale... how cool that there will be more original songs too! :)

Ok, ok enough Gleeking out... today I've got one final card left over from the Some Odd Girl clear stamp release that I want to share. This darling little gal is Love Letter Kaylee and she is absolutely adorable. So much so that when Kristy asked us all to choose our favorite stamp for the first sneak peeks I went with Kaylee here. I think a big part of her appeal is the joy she has at either receiving or sending that special letter, something that I think most of us card makers can relate to. :)
For my second card using Kaylee, instead of creating a scene, I found this great Sassafras paper that looked like stitched notebook paper. The look was soft and pretty and I liked the idea that it could be like the paper she wrote her love note on in that envelope. Then I just went girly with the rest of the embellishing, continuing the soft and sweet look both in the texture of the ribbon and ribbon roses and in the color palette. Pretty, pretty, pretty!

All six of the new SOG clear stamps are fantastic and you can check them all out at Some Odd Girl... what are you waiting for?! ;)

Hi Amy. I could not agree more about GLee. We were all in tears over Sue and her sister and little Becky. Loved it! I also this that your card is just adorable. You just have such a way with the ribbon roses and the way you place your pearls and gems. I really love this card. Have a great evening. Hugs, Lisa
