The Measure Of Love

As a crafty girl, I truly appreciate the fact that I can create things my own way....say a blue and gray valentine for example! I'm not ready just yet for the velvet red hearts, and cupids arrows.I give you permission to break as many holiday color rules as you wish, its actually a little fun !
  There is so much going on in my little world right now...... the Wedding planning, Chella turning 17 this Friday,work, and tons of projects due...I need a little dose of calmness to sooth my frazzled senses.

These serene shades and a spritz of lavender home spray in my craft room have done a world of good! I feel incredibly blessed to have so much activity and happiness in my life, but I do get overwhelmed at times!

I used a Gray Stampin' Up! marker and the spritz tool to create this slight spray of gray mist on selected areas of the card. I think it makes the sentiments look less stark and a bit aged.

It was love at first sight when I found this measuring tape twill was hard to cut it ,but I was brave and snipped off several inches to make a bow! No point saving it, after all despite it's fabulous-ishness it didn't make my ribbon drawer look any prettier!

I know you are dying to know who won the Imagine Christmas Wish cartridge giveaway sponsored by provocraft from last week, so I will stop gabbing and tell you......
The Winner is:

Love that card. The papers are so pretty. I don't have that cartridge yet. Thanks for the chance to win it!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!  jcinokc!!! I know you are going to love the Christmas Wish cartridge!!!

The other little fun announcement is a new addition to InkingPink called "thinking Pink" and is on the right hand sidebar at the top of the page, I will be featuring a thought, quote or tip of the day.So each day stop in and see what is goal is to keep it fresh, fun, {or funny}, and informative or maybe a little inspirational. This is an idea a friend asked me to start doing almost a year ago, and I'm finally ready to give it a try, what do you think?
