LSC #16 Merci

Happy Friday!!! Its LSC time again..... I am actually embracing my inner American visiting my In-Laws in Ohio for Thanksgiving...so please bear with me for not visiting your blogs...no WIFI?????? I may actually die!!!
I wanted to do something non seasonal and use some new colours- I love this combo sooo much.
I kept my card super simple- I wanted the paper and sentiment to be the focus. I inked the chipboard frame and heart so they would match.
Go check my Loonie sisters out to see what they have come up with.....
Please play along and post your link in the comments- Papertrey is not required just something similar!!
Deets: All Products Papertrey except the chipboard- It is Maya Road

I went in with an open mind thinking it would probably SUCK- no pun intended..........

The movie was better than I expected...there were a few cheasy moment in the beginning

2S4U - Wassailing

Ok, here's my take on Laura's Sketch #12.

I just picked up my Basic Grey Wassail papers on the weekend and need to do something with them. As I was fanning though, I saw these papers and the big die cut and had a light bulb moment. This card will be for my Son's grandma (pseudo ex mother in law)- its is totally her- the big flowers kind of a country feel........sans chickens or cows LOL!! Anyhow she is A GREAT lady and she loves my cards.

The papers are all BG, the sentiment is papertrey and how awesome are those buckles from Spellbinders??? really awesome, ribbon is American Crafts
