A Few of My Favorite Things...

Today, I'm showing a few of my favorite things: a Card Kitchen card (February kit from Jillibean Soup); 3D roses handmade using Rumple Ribbon (by Lovebug Creations); and, a stickpin that I created using simple jewelry findings.


The card kit design showed the papers as I have placed them, as well as the "You are my Favorite" sticker. However, I decided to change it up by making the complementing roses -- they're simply rolled and glued, with a pearl center. I added adhesive pearls and Punch Bunch punched leaves beneath. To make the stickpin, I used a pearl corsage pin and added three glass beads and a crimp bead. Easy-peasy, and I think it truly enhances the card. What do you think?

This is my daughter Emily's Valentine's Day card. Of course she's my FAVORITE daughter -- she's my only child! :)  Thank you for being the bestest daughter, as well as my best friend, Emily!

Love,
MomE
