that sucks…

hawkins_jill_that sucks_Mega high last post, to low this post… I felt this card was fitting, due to the recent news of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine ceasing publishing after February.

Once again, a pretty literal take on the inspiration photo–I guess that’s my current trend ๐Ÿ™‚

I liked this card before adding the hearts, but I had to include a little love on this card. This card is also far from perfect, but perfect is not handmade ๐Ÿ˜‰

…AND a HUGE THANK YOU shout out to Teri Anderson for sharing this awesome TT sentiment set (& many others) with me–so kind and generous….her kindness thrills me to no end! Teri has a uber talented crafty mind…I just dig her style so. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can never make enough Thank You cards (& I really enjoy this die…Lawn Fawn!). Now if I can get them into addressed envelopes and mailed. ๐Ÿ™‚ !

When I first saw this inspiration photo, I had other plans, but alas, the elusive *time*. So I made these! And think they are fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ Best part, I only planned the one, but die cutting =’s TWO! Bonus! ๐Ÿ˜‰
