What's Not to Love......PPA236

                                       




A card like this just lends itself to writing a blog post about things I love.......like family,puppies and walks on the beach........but I thought I would list a few things I have loved about the past few days instead........

1.  I love that Emma has learned a not quite appropriate word to say when she spills something.......and it is not my fault!

2.  I love that my 89 year old mother is still feisty enough to take matters into her own hands.  After a tooth extraction she was supposed to return to the dentist a few days later to get the stitch out.  It was a cold snowy morning and she called and said,  "Don't pick me up for the dentist - I am not going out in this weather. I am going back to bed and don't worry I took the stitch out myself!"

Yes she did and she is perfectly fine - and we all got an extra hour's sleep!

3.  And I love the fresh new look of our sketches at Pals Paper Arts thanks to resident artists Kerry Willard Bray and Nicole Watt!  Hope you play along!

Linda I love this card. I don't make many "heart/love" type cards, but I especially love the CAS of this one. The hanging hearts and the twine application is fantastic! Love that! hugs.

PS: LOVE your mom's attitude. Wish my mom was still here, she was so spunky too.

It's the little things, isn't it? And I adore this card. The baker's twine tugging on the die cut sentiment is a fabbo look! Not to mention the hanging little hearts.

Awesome card, Linda! I love the use of the sentiment and the sequins. The use of the twine to anchor the sentiment is a great touch!

I just played along with PPA for the first time in months and didn't realize until after I posted my card that my card is very similar to yours - you must have inspired me!

Love, love, love your card, Linda! Those sweet little hearts hanging from the sentiment and the beautiful wrapped up twine...perfection! I love being a part of PPA with you!
