Muse #104

I'm back at Muse this week, and just in time for one last Valentine?  No?  I hear you!  I have completed all my cards for my kids, grands, and the hubs... so what's a girl to do?  How about a card with heart, that isn't necessarily a Valentine?  Like this:

Hello, love!
My simple design uses one of the wonderful papers from Cosmo Cricket's "Creative Girl" 8x8 pad - first time I've ever purchased that size pad and love it! A few Paper Smooches dies: Hearts and Hello Words, and finally a little stitched rectangle from SSS on a Smoky Shadow base from PTI.
I hope this puts you in the mood to use any occasion to send a little love to someone... I'll bet it makes their day!
So I can't wait to see what you create while playing cards with me at Muse with:
  • a wonky background - any size
  • a die cut word
  • any color except pink, or red!!!
Here are the 3 simple Muse rules:
  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow members' submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow members' submissions that you find inspiring.
The InLinkz will close and voting will begin at 8:00 am next Monday. Please don't forget to come back and vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions. 

Our new challenge will begin at 9:00 a.m.on Monday.

Voting ends on Tuesday at 8:00 am. 

The results of voting will be announced at noon on Tuesday. 
Most importantly - have fun!!

Love the slightly tilted panel. This card says "hello love" to me. A perfect card for your hubby as a just because card.

This is an awesome masculine card. Very creative background and greeting. These are difficult to do sometimes. I played along this time at Muse with it. :)

Michele, a 1000 and one apologies for my late commenting! Travel, work, more work, more travel..gahhh! I'm going to sneak in a couple *cheers and applause* before I dash off to pack, then head to Calgary with my husband, to catch the bus to see my mom for a couple days before he comes to get me on Saturday. Rushing about a whole bunch *grin* Your card: handsome and striking! A most stylish guy card, indeed!
