Giving Some Love

Spent zero time in my craft room yesterday. Got myself up and organized fairly early, then got DH up earlish and took him up to an Urgent Care Clinic next to a really good hospital about half an hour from here. They, in turn, sent him to the ER next door to rule out a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in his lower left leg. As I assumed, it was cellulitis, which can turn nasty, but the antibiotics have already started to do their thing, and his leg looks much, much better. Just a smidgen of added stress yesterday. All's good today though. Spent my early, early morning FTing with a dear, sweet friend in the land of Oz, and then got crafty. I made about half a dozen card fronts, (4 x 5.25") which you'll see eventually. And since I felt DH needed a little extra loving, I made him a card. That's what we cardmakers do, after all, isn't it?! I used the recipe from Less Is More.


Nary a stamp was used in construction of this card...


All the hearts were cut with a set of LF dies using scraps of red. The "u" is part of an alphabet set from MB. Other than adhesive, that's all it took to make this card. My poor little honeylamb needs a little extra love, and I think this fits the bill nicely. Hope your weekend is lovely, and as always...

I love this stylish and clean design! The red hearts really pop from the crisp background and it's a great layout for drawing the eye in and around the card. Fantastic! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

I'm sure your hubby loved this card you made for him! The cascading hearts look beautiful, what a great layout. Isn't it great when you can make stunning designs using just scraps of cardstock? Love it when that happens! Thanks for joining us at Less is More!

I don't know how I missed this in my inbox. I love your sweet and romantic design for LIM, Bevie, and I'm sure John loved it, too! I hope he is continuing to improve every day! What a scare for you. I'm continuing to keep you both in my prayers. Sending lots of love and hugs, Darnell
