Waltzingmouse Blog Party

Quick post to meet the deadline for the blog party, the theme being I'm Falling For You, and share a little smile! Stop over at the WMS blog for all the eye candy.

Inspiration for this came from a discussion in the WMS forum recently about how we'd like Claire to provide more sentiments to go with the Frame It set. I was looking at my Sweethearts set, and that Memory Box Nutty Acorn die I just bought and voila! I need to put a mushy sentiment inside like "That's why I love you!"

I cut the die out of lightweight card stock covered with double stick tape, then applied some glitter.  I am sharing these photos taken on my iPad so they are no doubt dreadful, but cannot be helped!

Love how you've put an acorn in the frame and the bow finishes it off so perfectly. I've just got this set and can't wait to use it all!

So stunning...and that ribbon, just so beautiful. I am in love with your sweet acorn, it just sparkles! That is a wonderful idea to have more sentiments for frame it, but the one you used is so perfect for your card.
