"Love is Sweet"

 
Wowser, Christmas came and went at lightning speed.  Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas.  Ours was small and cozy.  Thanks to our number 2 son who enjoys cooking, he was a fantastic help preparing most of the dishes which we also shared with our neighbor.  On the menu was Korean BBQ Chicken cooked on the grill, Pulled Pork, Baked Ham, Corn Chowder, Edamame Rice, Tofu Salad, and Lemon Crunch Cake like the one from the former Young Hotel on Oahu back in the 50's.  All I made was the Edamame Rice and Tofu Salad.   That allowed me time to do some major house cleaning such as jealousies, etc.  We're also painting the bedrooms.
 
Today, I'm sharing a card I made several weeks ago for a wedding shower.  The image is by Penny Black.  I also used Copics, Spellbinder die, punch by Martha Stewart, DP from my ever-growing stash, flowers & buds by Inky Impressions and Wild Orchids, Ribbon from Stamps and Memories (on Oahu), charm by Inky Impressions, leaf punch by EK, distress ink, pearls by Kaiser Crafts, and sentiment by Hero Arts.
 
Here's  a close-up.....
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - "Challenge 249 - Anything Goes"

I can't believe I didn't comment on this card earlier....thought I did...getting goofy from too much holiday stuff. Anyway, I love the sweetness of this card. It reminds me of an adorable felt ornament I purchased a few Christmases ago. It's always a joy to see your fine craft work. Happy New Year!
