MCT April Sneak Peek Day #4

Good morning! It's day #4 for My Creative Time April Sneak Peeks! Aren't you LOVING what Emma has created for all of us! I know I LOVE it and can't wait to create some more with this FABULOUS release! There are four new stamp sets being featured today, "Journal It",   "Stitched Journal Die",  "You Are Here" , "We Are Family" and the "Stitched Restroom Peeps".
Today I decided NOT to make a traditional card. I wanted to make a postage kind of a card. I wanted something on the front but the ability to write a little note on the back! See this is going to my husband. On April 23, 2011, almost 20 years ago we went out on our first date! It was the BEST date I have ever had and I still adore him! Yes ~ we have had  some ups and some downs,but truly I couldn't live without him!
My little image and sentiment if from the stamp set "We Are Family" ~ aren't these ADORABLE! I thought the image fit PERFECTLY in the  new "Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow" . I did cute down the middle part so I could matte and pop dot in against the yellow just to add some dimension. Now for another little sneak I used the new "Journal It" stamp set and the new "Journal it Die". I can see me using these new sets for a lot! Just not for PL sort of stuff but for cards, tags, mini book and so much more! I also used the "Stitched Layer Heart Dies" and the "Just Simply Live" stamp set for my number of the day and the year. I think this combo new and older goes amazingly together! My fun pattern paper and seam binding come from my sweet friend, Liz's Paper Loft Boutique. She not only carries these amazing items but so much more!
I know these colors don't scream romance but these are some of his favorite colors!
Just a reminder I am super excited that Miss Joy, Obsessed With Scrapbooking , has   graciously asked me to guest design for her all week! I am still over the moon with excitement! You can see my starting posts on her blog here and on my blog here!
But lets not forget about Emma's AWESOME news too!
