sweet nothin's...

Another rainy, rainy day here in Southern California. The politically correct response to that is, "We need it." The truth to most native Californians is..."Enough already!" We have been socked in here for a whole week and I have to admit after the first 48 hours of being happy to be stuck inside, now I wanna go out and play. But I know...we've had years of drought and we need the rain.

Just wanted to share a sweet little card I made for the Card Positioning System's (CPS150) challenge this week sponsored by October Afternoon.

I have been receiving the KOM from Unity stamps now for nearly a year and I hate to admit that I have not even begun to ink many of the up. But that is changing cuz I'm lovin their images.
This delicate little cupcake and sweet nothin's sentiment is from the August KOM. I used copic markers on the image but also on the little pearls in the middle of the flowers. What a wonderful way to get a perfect match...the pearls were from a mixed bag of white pearls I picked up at Joanne's for 40% off last year but with the swipe of a copic marker they can become any color my heart desires. I love em! The October Afternoon paper line is Report Card. I just love the retro look of it...kind of looks like your grandma's wallpaper.

I used my sewing machine to underline the sentiment and to zig zag the two papers together. The heart border punch from Martha Stewart is one of my favorites right now...a simple bow and twine tied button finish it off. So simple...so sweet.

Pretending to enjoy another day of rain,
