Happy Monday, Bleeps! I hope you had a great weekend, even though it flew by! I got a chance to visit some great stores yesterday, including the Paper Source and Anthropologie. I forgot how much I really liked both stores, but Anthropologie blew me away. They were having a sale, which was really exciting and I picked up a few items, which put a HUGE dent in my wallet (*gulp*)! I guess I’ll be wearing those pieces over and over and over again to make sure I get my monies worth!
Here is a photo of one of the tops I found (not on sale UGH!) that I had to have. My style is a bit funky. I like traditional with something that pops. This shirt is SUPER comfortable. The necklace was much more flattering on than on the hanger. My favorite part is the embroidered colorful flowers of course! I love bright colors added to my wardrobe. I would share my other two finds, but they weren’t on the site. If you have a store near you, check them out. If you don’t like their clothes, you’ll love their home decor!
Anyway, about the card! Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s card inspired by Laura’s sketch over at 2S4Y
! This week’s sponsor is The Cutting Cafe
and I got the chance to make an entire card from digital stamps! I had a lot of fun!
Here’s a peek at the sketch! It’s a great one, so I hope you all get a chance to create something inspired by it!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
