All you need is LoVe

Happy Friday!
I am so excited for a 3 day weekend.
I have a dual baby shower to go to tomorrow, but I plan on vegging out all weekend.
Can you say, "mommy is sleeping in?" lol
Last night, I decided to sit down and play with my August Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Co.  I used a few other stamps from other companies too (but the focal images are unity).  Where I originally started with card, and where I ended up are totally different, but I love the results.  The text background, is from a little stamp from Prima, and the library card looking stamp is from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the library card stamp, distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz distressed ink & blending tool and then stamped the different images and sentiments in pink from Unity.  Before I adhered the library card to the card base, I added some Prima pattern paper, and wrapped some ribbon around the ivory panel.  I strung the buttons with some Jillibean Soup bakers twine, and adhered them down with glue dots.  If I were to change anything about this card, I would probably round the bottom corners of the card, just to soften it up a little.  Isn't that sentiment so true?  All you need is LoVe!  So, so, so true!  I wish more people would just allow themselves, to let their heart be filled with love, it is so much easier to be happy, than dwell on negative things.  Being sad, depressed, or negative is a recipe to be miserable.  So I will stick with love :)
