Love U

A disaster almost happened when I was creating today's card.

I have all the pieces cut out and ready to stamp on a letter each stamp .  Em, I got O, V, E and U, but where's L?  I was using L to measure the size of the stamp so I knew I had taken it out from the package but where was it?

It turned out that after I had cut all the pieces with my Cricut, I tried to be organized and put the Cricut mat away.  As I was doing so, the letter "l" was stuck to the back of the mat and it was "relocated" involuntarily to the bottom of the box that I kept my mat.

Glad that I found the letter.  Can't imagine what I should do with the alphabet set if I lose one letter.  What would you do?

Anyhow, onto today's card (Thanks for reading along).  I'm combinining the sketch challenge from Just Us Girls and the color challenge from The Play Date Cafe:

When I saw the four squares I wanted to fill in the word "LOVE" in each of the squares, so I've made a Valentine's Day card:

The color combo Black, White and Red in The Play Date Cafe challenge is a great combo and I've learned quite a bit from the participants that are using it for Christmas projects.  The sketch by Just Us Girls is very versatile too.  I'd like to make a masculine card that has a similar design but says "HB2U".  It should give it a lot of fun to try it out!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hey Joyce,

    nice card, no stress..
    I really like your "chic of the week" card, did you cut the girl silhouette using a Cricut image? or is that a stamp?
