I do Love Nothing So Well as You

Oh my gosh - don't you just LOVE this Shakespeare quote???!!!

The Ways to Use It challenge over on Split Coast today was to use stickers.

I knew I had tons of stickers from my scrap booking days somewhere and luckily I had a file folder right under my work table labeled 'Valentines'.  I pulled it out - wiped off the dust - and I found a wonderful book of stickers with all kinds of love quotes inside!

I embossed my card base with my Tim Holtz Patchwork embossing folder then just stuck the sticker on top!

It took me longer to figure out where to place the little hearts I decided were needed than to design and make the whole card! At first I just put one on the top left corner - but the old rule of threes was shouting in my head - so this is what I ended up with. Inside I stamped a simple "Be Mine, Valentine"

Now I've got to go back into my stamping room to see what other quotes are in that book of stickers!!

The weekend's almost here!   don't forget to check out the Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch and on Sunday I'll have a card for the Sisterhood Sunday's challenge!
