|doughnut brads and coffee brads: eyelet outlet; typewriter journal card: my mind's eye; alphabet stickers: kelly purkey/simon says stamp; patterned paper: basic grey; adhesives: elmers brand glue tape, 3m foam tape|
a couple of things got me over the need to use hearts for this, and in the spirit of full disclosure of course i'm going to tell you what they were. first, i had a packet each of eyelet outlet coffee brads and doughnut brads. and i've been longing to use them together! second was finding the mme journal card with the typewriter and the blank page, which is exactly the right size for two brads and a typed sentiment.
but maybe the biggest thing was the curtain call inspiration challenge which ended last friday, so obviously i knew i'd be too late to link up with them, but their theme was "XOXO" and several of the design team's cards had background papers with that design. i didn't happen to have any store bought paper with those on, but i did have ledger paper and alphabet stickers... cha-ching! card FINISHED!!!
of course there are LOADS of ways to take this, and my clever SOS dt darlings have thought of lots of them to help inspire you. why not check those out right now?! ♥
*in my family, february the 14th is more commonly known as "riley's birthday" since my niece just happened to have been born on this day in 2002. those of you mathy types will have noted that is FIFTEEN years ago... HOW did that time go by soooooooo fast, eh??!?! luckily we adults in the family are aging at a completely different and much slower rate, lol! :) :) :)
