CAS Kissing!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  Can't believe it's Tuesday already!  :>  The weekend was a waste for me as I spent Saturday and Sunday not feeling well!  No fun but happy to report I am back at it!  :>  Currently as I type this post I am making turkey soup and working on cinnamon buns!  If your wondering how come I am making turkey soup it's because my mom called us up on Sunday and said "come for dinner I had to pull the turkey out of the freezer since I need the room!"  She sent me home with lots of leftovers!  And cinnamon buns?  Well I've never made them with yeast and I am needing a change from muffins and loafs!  Plus who doesn't love cinnamon buns?

I was quite excited about the current Lily Pad Kissing Challenge as well it's one of my favorite techniques!  So I had to play!  Here's my card:

I kissed a leaf from Leaf Clusters with Envelope Pattern Background stamp both by Hero Arts together.  I used shabby shutters distress ink with chocolate chip ink by SU.  I tied some matching twine by the twinery and added a button.  I made this card on Friday and left it sentiment less.  I didn't know where to put it so I put the card aside, I considered leaving it sentimentless but it didn't feel finished.  Today out of the blue it dawned on me to put a brown strip with the sentiment across.  So off I went embossing in white the sentiment while Carter played the piano next to me, maybe a bit with his feet (I told him not to!) And there you go a card that I am happy with using my favorite technique!

Life is pretty good over here lately.  Working on more wreaths since I figure if I am going to open up an etsy store I should have a decent inventory, no?  Also have to go to the other side of the city to get boxes for shipping!  :>  It's gotten cold here once again.  Been hearing a lot of people complain about wanting winter to end.  I don't.  I enjoy the excuse to stay home.  I enjoy the less busy life I lead in the winter.  I love being home making stuff and baking and cooking!  And all that without feeling guilty that it's beautiful outside and I should be out and about with the kids!  :>  Well I am off to feed the family and kneed some dough!

Very pretty card! you have a style that is really your own:) Simplistically beautiful! Great colours used and love the flagged end of the sentiment strip!

Turkey soup sounds so yummy! I love soup and don't eat it enough!

I'm looking forward to outside walks/runs, t-shirts and warm weather! I'm glad some people enjoy the cold though;)

And I just smell those yummy buns in the oven! Love this card, Anita - it has a real "Zen" feeling to it - very peaceful. I have trouble with this technique, so it helps to see this beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Oh NO, sick again? The mild winter must have let all the nasty bugs out! I bet your turkey soup and cinnamon rolls made you feel better.

Great example of stamp kissing - so glad you shared it with us at Lily Pad Cards!

Oh the turkey soup & cinnamon rolls sound delish and perfect for a cold day. I love the stamp kissing on your card, Anita! I was just looking at that stamp the other day & was thinking I should use it more often. Thanks for inspiring me!

Such a beautiful CAS card - love that leaf stamp. Terrific design too. I know I have to leave a card sitting over night or so sometimes. This is perfect.
