You & Me!

Hi there!  Ever sit down to make a quick little project and it winds up taking all day?!  I have had one of those days today!  I started working on my project this morning, but then things kept coming up that required my attention so here it is almost 5:30 and I am just now sitting down to share it with you!  Guess late is better than never though, right?! :)  Here is my quick little project (that took all day long to make!) LOL

It is a tabletop sitting love note!  I think the sweet little hearts on top almost make it look like an ice cream sundae! Lots of fun, happy doo-dads to look at on this project!  Would you like some details?

I cut a piece of card stock at 5" x 10 1/2".

I scored it at 3 1/2" and at 7".

I folded it up so that it looked like this! ^

While it was all folded I cut off the corners so when I opened it up they were all even and perfectly matched.

I stamped the background with the little heart from the Sale-A-Bration set Banner Blast (which you will be able to get free soon through Sale-A-Bration which starts in one little week!!!!)  I added three die cuts from the Deco Labels Framelits as the center working space.  I  sponged all the edges first though to antique it a bit.

To make the first panel I punched the bird and leaves from the Two Step bird punch. Then I did a little bit of stamping using the Happy Watercolor set.

The second panel is stamped using the Perfect Pennants set.  The silver glimmer heart is punched from the Two Step Owl punch.

The third panel has a hand cut arrow tucked behind a sweet sentiment from the Love You to the Moon stamp set.  I made the rose from the new Spiral Flowers Big Shot die.  The leaves are punched from the Two Step Bird punch.  (They are actually the birdie wing!)

Here is a close up shot of the flower.  I used my hot glue gun to hold it all together!

Here is the finished project again!

Stamps: Banner Blast (Sale-A-Bration), Happy Watercolor and Love You to the Moon and Back
