It's Wednesday Again!

It's Wednesday again.....where does the time go?! I haven't even posted since Friday, and now it is Wednesday and time for another Paper Pretties post!

I have so many things to post...on this blog and my other blog, but I just have to find the time!!

I have a fun card for you today! I hope you like it!

These stamps are from Sealed With A Kiss over at Paper Pretties. I came up with the idea that I wanted Luke and Lexi to be kissing through a window....and I needed an anniversary card, so the two came together. Why would married folks be sharing a kiss through a window, you may ask? I like to think that Luke was rushing out to work (I wish I had a briefcase to put in his hand!) and couldn't resist coming back to steal just one more kiss. LOL! Isn't that what your life is like?! :)



In this close up shot, you can see the scoring at the corners of the window frame. There is actually quite a lot of scoring on this card, but much of it can't be seen in the photo. The whole side of the building has scored bricks on it, and the sidewalk segments have been scored also. In other words...it doesn't look quite as plain in real life! :) The scoring gives it a lot of texture and many of the elements are popped up with dimensionals to give it depth.

The papers are from Cloud 9 Design...The Wood Stone Collection. The paper on the wall is called Naples and the paper that is on the sidewalk is called Florence. Luke and Lexi were stamped on watercolour paper and then were coloured with SU! watercolour crayons and an aqua painter. The mini blossoms are from making memories. The wallpaper behind Lexi is from my scrap bin.

That sums it up! Have a great Wednesday!
