JUST US GIRLS #279 - Word Week

It's Word Week  at JUST US GIRLS. Cheryl is our Hostess this week and she's picked the word LOVE as your inspiration. Since V-Day is rapidly approaching, this is a fantastic challenge to get those last minute lovey-dovey cards made! Here's my take:

Here's the inside:

My apologies for the shoddy print job. The sentiments are computer generated, and my printer is on it's last leg. I desperately need a new one! The lady says "I love you" and the man says "Is that you or the wine talking?" I think you can read the inside well enough! LOL! I printed the front sentiments on vellum, because I didn't want to cover up the stamped background panel completely. The Mr. and Mrs. are stamped on white cs, fussy cut, adhered to black cs and fussy cut again. (Because that's how I roll) The metal heart stickers on the word bubbles were used because 1) they were heart shaped and 2) they hide the foam dots used to stick them to the card.

Ready to play along? Sure you are! Just be sure to link up your card or project at Just Us Girls! Don't forget to check out what my amazingly talented teammates, and our February Guest Designer, Stephanie, have created for your viewing pleasure! Remember, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of the February challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of April! I look forward to seeing what you create!
