Here’s Looking at You

PP254 Frames

Hi All – I am on a little vacation this week.  A fun trip to the beach with some girlfriends from GFC (Girlfriend Camp).

I thought it would be fun to send Hubby a little card while I am gone to let him know I miss him.

The challenge this week at The Paper Players is to make a CAS (Clean and Simple) Card with the theme: “Frames.”

The first thing I thought of was glass frames as Hubby and I are at that fun stage in life where we are always looking for our reading glasses and/or sharing each others.

And… After 33 years, my heart still does stop and skip a beat when he looks at me.  ❤

Hence the design for this week’s Paper Players Design Team Inspiration Card.

Here’s what I used and how I made it.

Card Recipe/Ingredients:

I simly drew and watercolored a heart on a piece of watercolor paper, splattered it a bit, and stamped the sentiment on with Stazon JetBlack Ink.

I then die cut the glasses out and put a thin layer of Crystal Accents for a glossy accent on them.  When that dried, I adhered it with small glue dots, and assembled the layers on the card.

I added a little line heart on the inside from StampinUp’s Hello Life Stamp Set.

So – Here’s looking at you, Merv.  And if you look back, I might wink.  😉

Cheers and Hugs,

  2. Aw, this is not only cute, but sweet too! I hope he liked the card! Thanks for the pesto recipe too…my crop is pretty awesome as well but I haven’t done a thing with it yet. This is the nudge I needed…well, and some pine nuts too.

  3. Jodi, I hope you are having a blast with your GF at the beach! Nothing better than the beach and great friends! Your card is fantastic! I love those glossy glasses! I have worn glasses for over 40 years. I have lots of pairs and always have a pair on top of my head. Your sentiment and heart are perfect! XX

  4. So sweet – enjoy your vacation Jodi! I’m sure your husband will appreciate this fun card! As someone who had worn specs since childhood, I am amused that those around me are now having to deal with coming to terms with wearing them as we all grow older; my husband seems to spend more time looking for his having mislaid them than anything else these days!

    • LOL! I can relate to your husband Joanne! 🙂 The stinking problem with reading glasses is you need them for closeup, but then can’t see someone across the table, so it is up/down, off/on! ARGH!


I love hearing from you - hope you'll drop me a line
