2022: Marriage Week Day 7 [card #41]

Hello again, sweet friends! Happy Marriage Week❤️

It's the last day of Marriage Week... my goal is to make one more card so I can finish up by celebrating Valentine's Day as well! And today is actually World Marriage Day--- so join with me and celebrate your love and marriage today! 

Marriage Week Day 7: today's card is a bit of a disappointment-- Trav walked into my studio when I was making this card 🤦🏼‍♀️ To cover up my surprise I told him I was making love/Valentine's Day cards for a challenge. OY! So to make it look like I was entering a "challenge" I had to make two of these designs- that's why the card number count for this year has jumped two from yesterday's post! 

Trying to keep these a secret has been hard! I'm disappointed that he's already seen it and that I lied about it; I'm sure he has already forgotten about it and will understand my white lie:) 
As you can see... I love my patterned papers and layers! I'm digging into my roots again! It feels nice to be back in the groove. 
I found more inspiration from the World Wide Web--- HERE is the design I found (I've never heard of PaperNova but I love their project and might have to look them up!). I really liked the heart with a hoop or stitched background. I pulled out some of my favorite Paper Smooches stitched dies for that heart! The yellow heart was cut using my new Big Shot Switch Plus so the holes were cleaned quickly as I pulled the mat and shim from the die. As much as I liked this look, I really like the pink heart because I die cut that in my old Cuttlebug and found that many of the holes were cut but the pieces stayed in their spot because the pressure in this old machine is not as hard! Not sure I explained that well... regardless, I love both cards:) 

Trav's gift for today is a lotto ticket. **NOTE: we do not play the lotto... but every once in awhile I will get Trav a scratch off! Wouldn't it be fun to win something on the one ticket I get him!? LOL The odds are not in our favor but it's fun to dream:) 

That's it for me today. I hope this card inspires you to get creative today or to celebrate your love and marriage❤️

THANKS so much for stopping by!    

Be blessed ❤️
