Thank You So Much! for Market Street

Love is in the air! Can you feel it? I love Valentines season, there is so much pink and red in all of the stores and people get so crafty with making handmade cards, flowers, cookie and such. You can almost taste Spring in the air, hoping that it comes early this year. Can you hear the little chirps in the background?
Yeah, me neither. I live in the frigidly cold upper Midwest where we are barely to spring before the official Summer is supposed to start. ;)
This card has to be one of my favorites lately. Even though I have two girls, I am not a huge lover of pink, except at this time of year. GASP!!! I know, right? So, I thought just little pieces of it would work perfectly.
For the background I used the Hearts A Plenty stamp, and then used the So Happy set for the flower and sentiment, both from Market Street Stamps.
You might have noticed, or maybe not, but I use craft paper, a lot. I also have had the obsession with canvas and pins. But, we can talk about those issues at a later date. I also sewed around the edge of the card. I don't usually sew on paper, because, well, I am lazy. I hate to drag out the sewing machine just to do a little card. Well, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Especially when there is an idea floating around in our heads.
Well, I have been uncharacteristically chatty today, so I will now leave you with the pics. Hope you enjoy!!
