Hugs and Sparkly Kisses

It is a late-night craft-a-thon!  I have been feeling the mojo like crazy tonight, which is a good thing since my kids start school again tomorrow!  Nothing like a good distraction...

Anyway, I wanted to play along again with Freshly Made Sketches #99 because this week they had a fantastically simple little CAS sketch.  JUST what I needed!  You will soon see why my late night crafting must come to an end though, lol...stay with me, this is worth it!  ;)

I used the Close to My Heart Laughing Lola Purple and Black CS for this card along with some silver glitter paper (I KNOW!)

Here is the sketch...

These adorable Hershey kisses and stamps are from a stitched die set from MCT.  Yummy and cute at the same time!  The Laughing Lola CS is embossed with the Cuttlebug Hugs and Kisses folder from Provocraft.  It has become one of my favorites!

This is a great, but unfortunately retired My Acrylix stamp that I used on the inside of the card.  It was available only in the For Always Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit from CTMH.

Now, because I am making and posting this up so late, I accidentally did it AGAIN and put the front of my card on backwards...sigh.  I was going to perform a front-of-card-ectomy, but I decided that my Aunt might actually get a good laugh out of this one if I leave it as is.  ;)  I sure would appreciate any prayers for her you could whisper right now as she recovers from a delicate surgery and awaits test results.  Thanks, my sparkly friends!


  1. I can't count the times I've made a backwards card! LOL! Sometimes it's just better left alone! I love your clever used of the sketch and how you added the little pieces of paper with the sentiment. Very cute. I'm praying for your aunt. Best wishes on her test results. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. So glad to know I am in good company! I am happy to be playing along with you guys--and cannot thank you enough for the prayers! :)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
