Love You with Pals Paper Arts

Love You

Growing up my mom used to say to me, “El corazon no manda.”  Meaning, the heart doesn’t tell us what to do.  I never knew what she meant by it until I fell in love.  I also used to hear people say, “Love is blind.”  I never knew what that meant either. LOL…until you guessed it, until I fell in love.  This card is dedicated to my mom who taught us that Love is universal and our hearts is what we love with.  Love you mom.

I’ve been truly challenged to the limit with card challenges and I must let you know that I’m officially obsessed with card challenges.  I would love for you to be crazy about it too…LOL.  You don’t have a blog?  You don’t need to.  you can use Pinterest and a few weeks ago I made a video that shows you how to post a challenge though Pinterest.  Check it out here.


  • White Space.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it.  Especially if your goal is to showcase one thing.  My showcase is simply the word LOVE.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Of all days in the month, today is my monthly two posts  in one day.

Nobody knows….how excited I am for today!  Why?  Because today Stamp, Ink, Paper card challenge is born.  The brain child of Justin Krieger is going to take card challenges by the tail.  I urge you to join us in celebrating today’s birth by entering the challenge and give it all you’ve got.  I’m also giving away some blog candy to one lucky player who enters the challenge.

Challenge 1

I’m an earth tony type of girl and I have traveled the world many times over during my 25 year stint with the Air Force.  I used numbers instead of a sentiment for my card to introduce myself because numbers play a huge part of my life.  Although it’s June 8th…(19)68 was the best year of my parents life.  Why?  It was the year their only daughter was born.  It was a great for my mom because she was surrounded by nuts! LOL…now go on over to Stamp, Ink, Paper and read more about me and the other design team members.


I met Justin just shy of two years and he is the epitome of card-making perfection!  When he invited me to become a part of this fabulous design team I felt so overwhelmed with happiness.  I feel so honored to be among the truly best card designers out there…I aimed for the moon because I knew I’d end up among the stars.  The blog candy is a brand new LOTUS BLOSSOM stamp set.


  • Sentiment Not Need.  That’s right, there is no rule that states a card must have a sentiment.  I have numbers that mark the birth of today’s card challenge.  Numbers mark a day of most importance in our lives like an anniversary or birthday.

A Hawaiian Anniversary


Today’s card is dedicated to my brother and his beautiful bride of 25 years.  They went to Hawaii to celebrate and they shared with me the photo of the mass dedicated to them. Lovely and slightly jealous they were in Hawaii. =)


  • Use real photos.  Card-making doesn’t always have to have a stamped focal point. Real photos are so personal in nature that using one to make a card that much more special. However, I did use three stamp sets to make the frame and add the lovely flowers to represent the Hawaiian adventure.
  • Photo frame video.  Yesterday’s card had a wood frame that did not require any cutting and I made a very quick video to show you how I did it.  My disclaimer…I’m pretty much straight and to the point in my videos. I’m still getting used to recording myself… LOL. Hope you enjoy.  If you want a video on today’s frame, please comment below and I’ll post it tomorrow.
