I have a new card I made for Woman's Day and I thought I should share it with you. I eventually colored one of my favorite Lili of the Valley stamps- Together Forever. I have had this stamp for a while now and haven't succedeed to make a card yet. This is a rather quick card, no glitter and too many extra embellies, and quite simple, I reckon. I am quite busy these days, plus I am trying to potty train my little one and I've got to follow his every movement and grimace...lol;))
For my card I used Cosmo Cricket papers from a digital pack called Everafter. I found it on Jessica Spargue 's website. They also have a 'One buck Wednesday', for those who don't know, when some delicious stuff cost just 1 dollar. I wish I knew about that sooner;))
I couldn't decide between the two sentiments so I put them both:)) I think they pretty much complete each other. The red and white string from which a small decoration is tied (in my case a charm) is called 'martisor' in Romanian and it is offered by people in my country on the 1st day of March, usually to women but not only. It is said that those who wear this 'talisman' will be strong and healthy during this year and it is also a symbol of the coming spring.
Anyways, in my country, people are still wearing this 'martisor' pinned to theitr clothes and it has become a sign of love, friendship or appreciation and an entire 'industry' has developped around it.
Well, enough blabbing, my recipe for this card is:
