In your arms

When I saw Soul Kisses on TAC wonderful winter wishes promotion, I knew I wanted to use this one sentiment with SU's Summer by the sea set. I just love when sets work so perfectly together, and you already own one of the sets. I have to say I totally love TAC's sentiment sets. This one will be another one of my favorites for cards for Paul for years to come! Our anniv is a week before V-day, so I at least have one of those events covered!

I had one mistake making this card. Made my jaw drop, I was so upset when I made the boo boo! My Crystal Effects is so old, the tip of the bottle broke off. So, I have a hole in the top of the lid. I figured I could still squeeze softly to put down the dew drops, but instead I had a big blop of CE come out of the top! Yikes on my perfect card too! It took me a few minutes to come up with a plan to fix it. I still wanted the dew drops on the card, but that CE had to come off! I'm also very frugal, so in my mind I'm all worried about wasting what I have to get off the card. I wasn't able to come up with a way to get it back in the container, so I lost some! I'm thinking now I need to combine a few of my stickles that are low into one jar. I have two crystals, and both are low. This way I can pour the CE into it instead of using the container with the hole in the top!

I used PTI ripe avocado cardstock for the base, TAC soul kisses and willoughby paper pack, SU's summer by the sea, close to cocoa ink pad and real red cardstock, noir palette ink, Lyra water color crayons, dew drops, ribbon from Joann's and too much CE! Layout was provided by Kim's little sketch book again! She should be real proud of how often I'm using it!
