Want to Cuddle?

Hello friends!

I am finally getting around to posting a card I created for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  I used Party Pals, Vogue Abode and Smoocheros to create this little number.

I first stamped the rug from Vogue Abode to create a little spotlight for this adorable hamster that I stamped and trimmed out after coloring the little guy pink with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment onto a word bubble sticker that I picked up from Hobby Lobby, and can I just say that word bubbles are like the most fun ever?

The patterned papers are from KI Memories new Valentine's Day collection and I added a few more die cut heart as a finishing touch.

Here is a close up of the focal point.

Below is the inspiration photo for this challenge.

I was definitely inspired by the hearts and the fun and cute style.  I also incorporated a bit of pinking edging in my heart patterned paper.

I was also inspired to make this card to give to my hubby.  Today is our 11 year wedding anniversary.  To celebrate, our 7 year old made dinner (crunchy scrambled eggs and toast, anyone?) and the girls "put on a show" while we dined at the dining room table on breakfast for dinner.  I just wanted to say, Happy Anniversary Jason and thank you to my girls for such a lovely evening!

Here are a couple pictures of Jason and me on our wedding day in Florence Italy.

Thanks for indulging me in a bit of family nostalgia and thanks for stopping by!  Have a great evening!
