Viva la Verve! Week 4 - I {heart} You!

Hello! I have a fun little card to share with you today! I created it for this week's Viva la Verve sketch challenge! Charmaine is our hostess this week and she came up with one sweet sketch!
Fun, right? I decided to pull out my I Heart You A Cut Above dies for this card! NO STAMPING! EEEKS! THis card came together in about 15 minutes, love that!

I used the new "A Beautiful Life" paper by MME for this card, don't you love those new papers? Speaking of new papers, check out the load I got in today from Eclectic Paperie!

THAT was a fun box to open;) I got most (if not all) of the new MME pads (six by six and Lost and Found 2 collections), the new Authentique collections, and the two new Basic Gray stacks! I also got a few of the new Distress Stains, some Glimmer Glam, and Glimmer Glaze! I just have to tell you how impressed I am, every single time I order from them, how quickly I get my orders! Keep in mind, I live in Okinawa Japan. I put my order in last Tuesday. Got it this Tuesday, that's Monday in the states, so that's like 6 days! Subtract Sunday from the equation, I got my box in 5 days. From the day I ordered, to the day I got it, a half a world away. Amazing. I PUFFY {HEART} YOU, Daisy!!!

Back to the card, lol! Like I said, I used the I Heart You die set for this card, and really all I had to do was add some ribbon and Copper Distress Stickles (to the heart) and this baby was done! I love it when they come together quick like that. I have a mountain of homework due but when the creative muse calls, you don't make her wait, kwim?;)

EEEEKKKKK!!!! Schmoopy! That is ONE BIG STACK O' PAPER!! How can you decide which to use? My stack is that big, but only a few pads came in at a time...and it's ALL so beautiful!! Major addiction alert to the Authentique Splendid...I thought I would only love Uncommon, but Splendid is over the top!! And what a lovely card you made with all the dies...and it's how I feel about you ....i {heart} u!!! Hugs and hugs to that beautiful baby in the pic :)
