What? You too? I thought I was the only one!

This C.S. Lewis quote makes me grin....BIG! Can you relate?! HA! 

The stamp is from Crafter's Companion Sentimentals collection - Friends and Family set. You gotta go check it out and see the other quotes, words and phrases it comes with. Da BOMB! Plus.. the fonts!!! HELLO! Perfect for chalkboard stamping fun!

I heat embossed with white ep...then mounted the panel with foam tape. The black dp already has the chalkboard "dust" all I had to do was stamp. Easy cheesy!

"What! You like bling too? I thought I was THE ONLY ONE" 

Take a closer look at the yummy wood veneer hearts. I stained them, covered with glaze and poured on glitter. OH.EM.GEE!!!! AH-MAZING! After they dried, I sponged black distress ink around the edges. I also lightly sponged black distress ink around all the edges of the paper pieces. That totally finished everything off.

Those are genuine Swarovski Crystals on the sides of the little Best Friends sticker....because best friends are worth it!

Don't forget about the inside of the card. These 3 stamps are also from the Friends and Family stamp set. "LOVE" is a 3rd generation stamped image. That means I inked it up - stamped it off 2 times on a piece of scratch paper -  then stamped it the 3rd time on the card. I KNOW! I always forget about that technique too! After I spend like 30 minutes looking for that "perfect ink color" -- it hits me!

My card layout is based this weeks Clean and Simple Card Challenge - CAS255.  I also used hearts for the Heart Challenge going on over at the Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge Blog.
