For c... a little Neil...

... Neil Diamond, that is.  Ms. c [of Just me: c] .. has had me singing away for a week since she shared her love of Mr. D.  So this little card just begged to be created!

I was a very lucky girl indeed to win a little SSS prize pack recently.  It came with a lovely little Kaisercraft stamp set that was packaged so beautifully, I decided I'd try to recreate the darling tag from their Lilac Avenue collection.  OH! and the Hello from E.H. Mondo Magnolia set was [still] on my desk begging for a little kiss - stamp kiss that is - which you'll see right there on that Hello upon close inspection!

For CASology Week 146 - third helpings!!  [which has not happened in a long time]:

 
PTI Vintage Cream CS; MFT Linen background stamp, and ink; Studio G Navy dye ink;
and the perfect words [always] from Winnie & Walter =]

Many thanks to Simon Says Stamp and Heidi for her generous heart - but mostly thanks to Samantha Elson, who just plain makes my day quite often!!

And to c... for putting a full Neil Diamond mix of songs in my heart - and a smile on so many faces...

This is absolutely stunning. Love that subtle background you added, and the kissing on the 'hello'. Another Neil Diamond fan here, although I have not thought of him in a while, your card reminds me of when I went to see him in concert. Thanks for playing (X3) at CASology this week. You are always welcome to come back for 4ths you know.

LOVE x LOVE this fabulous card, my sweet friend! Thank you for the shout out (I'm blushing and flushing with joy) and for acknowledging our shared 'adoring' of Mr. D with this gorgeous card! The *kissed* hello, the pretty floral-y flourish, the patterned paper...swooning! Yayyy you for winning the prize pack; you've showcased it with impressive style and flair!
Hugs~c

Congrats on your win! It is always so fun to receive happy mail. I adore that background. My hubbies friend is coming to US, I am putting an empty bag to go with him to bring me some goodies. That background stamp is going to be one of them. I seem to have soft spot for linen nowadays...

I've been meaning to do some kiss stamping and keep forgetting even though I put it on my "to do" list. It looks fab on the "hello", Michele. The entire card is fabulous actually. Love the linen background stamp and that flourish is gorgeous.

Not listening...not listening...not listening

Beautifully done card--you have all the right elements! The linen is just gorgeous! Love the kissed sentiment and that wonderful image! I had totally forgotten that I have that Kaisercraft set. So sad how many things get tucked away and forgotten!
