Our love story

Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday!
Hope all is well?!...

Half way through the week already! Things just don't ever seem to slow down, do they?! ;) Things still have been good here, just busy, busy, busy.

Anyhow, I do have a card to share and it's for the current Altenew's April Inspiration Challenge.

I tried my best to capture the colors...

I recently (once again) caved in and bought a few new things from Altenew. lol I honestly try my hardest not to buy anything new for awhile and then something happens to come along and well, I just can't always resist the temptation! lol ...sigh...

I actually did some stenciling! Yay! :) I kept my background on the lighter side but still wanted something, so thought stenciling would do the trick. ;) After, I stamped on my images using some inks that were close to the inspiration colors. And to finish things off, some white twine. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day and see you soon!
