Loads of Love

DSCF3165 DSCF3170

I made a very quick card this morning for my dad; I have been making Valentines for weeks, but they are all sparkly and frilly---not good for a dad!  So I pulled out my sadly-neglected Loads of Love set and made a fast card:


I wanted to put everything up a little higher, or add some ribbon to offset that empty space, but being the bad daughter that I am, it needed to go in the mail TODAY, so no time to rip and reposition.....because you KNOW what would happen if I tried to take that panel off...been there, done that!  So here it is, in all its bottom-heavy glory!  He'll like it, I know!  The image was colored in pastels; the heart embellishment is from PaperTrey's Love Songs, mounted on some nesties.

I also have been getting Loads of Love in my mailbox:  lots of wonderful cards, and some AWESOME blog candy, which I hope to show you later, as well as a sweet award!  Not enough time in the day!  But here are some of the nice cards:

That Loads of Love card is a PERFECT "Dad-Valentine!" And how lucky for you to have so much love in your mailbox! Too bad your friend Tammy isn't as good at sending cards to you as you are at sending cards to her!
