Is it too early for Valentines cards???

I just LOVE the sketch for this week at the CPS blog and since I need to STOP making Christmas cards, I figured the next move should be a LOVE themed card.
I so love this birdie patterned paper by Pink Paislee so since this was a scrap sitting on my scrapping table, I decided it was going to fit my theme just fine and maybe that is because it is red!!!
Take a good look at a couple of the buttons in my little row of buttons, the 4th one and the 7th one from the end. I glued my buttons in place because I didn't want to hand sew this many buttons and then as an added accent, I used Tulip's Diamond Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint and gave these two buttons a coat of the glitter. I just love the amount of sparkle that this Paint adds when it is dry. The last little piece of interest is a heart shaped button that has a white string tied in it.
Now for a layout with a little cutie on it.
I find that there isn't anything much cuter then a photo of a little boy in jeans taken from the back! This is one of my grandsons during the time when he was just learning to walk. LOVE the look. I created my accent on my layout by stamping an entire set of alphabet stamps on a piece of plain white paper.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
