Glitter and vintage....

....it doesn't get much better than that on love themed projects!!  I have a couple of cards to share with you today that are full of layers, and glitter, and vintage images....the list could go on.  I know it must seem like my cardmaking style has multiple personalities....but I think that is okay!  I just do whatever strikes my fancy at the time....a few days ago it was super clean & simple, and now it is layered and full of product.  I can deal....so hopefully you can too! :)

First up is my card for this week's sketch at CPS.  I changed it up a little by inverting the triangles to match this gorgeous chipboard frame, and then just layered, layered, layered....

Did you have a great weekend?  Ours was pretty quiet and lazy, which was nice!  My parents were here yesterday with Casey for some meetings at the university.  I'll talk about that more a little later.  They got here late late Saturday night (actually Sunday morning), and then left after we had dinner together with some friends.  It was a fun dinner, and am glad I got to see the fam for a short amount of time.

Well, short post for today.  I need to get going! Have a great day!  ♥

Until later,
~Lea
