Second helpings to Mix it Up!

Banner-MIX-it

To me?  MFT and Ellen's Essentials are a match made in card-making-heaven for their Mix it Up challenge!  It was virtually impossible for me to stop at just one .. or two for that matter! 


Can you see the knot?  I hope so, or the sentiment would be kinda wrong ... here is a little close-up, just in case:


For this mix up, I've used the Totally Fabulous by Julie die - yes, it was a thank you gift, but I'm hoping they'll offer it with the next release? - a few more Wonky MFT rectangles, and MFT Wood You be Mine stamps by LJD.  That little word You're is a BB You're Super stamp.

Now you know I'll be back with a card using all those left-overs, right?  I'll be sending these off to Winter's Cards from the Heart Card Drive so the more the merrier!

What a wonderful masculine valentine. I did not get the knot the first time around, but once the light dawned, I loved it!

The tied knot in the sentiment is such a fun idea!! Love those wonky rectangles. This is nifty. Quite frankly, your chocolate card base has me craving chocolate!!

You're 'fabulous' card is. . .well, fabulous, Michele. I love the dark colors. It's very masculine and the knot is a clever touch.

Ha, so clever, Michele ... and cute ... and gorgeous, of course! Yummy colours, love how you made the insides of the loopy letters that delicious chocolatey brown! Great minds, my friend ... we were both doing that at the same time ... my last card with the silver sentiment and aqua infills!! Hugs, Anita :)
