Ain't Love Grand

I had spent the early years of our sons life preaching to him NOT to ever use the word "ain't."  We told him that it doesn't make you sound very intelligent if you use that word.  I even had an English teacher that preached at us as students to never use the word and reminded us that it is not even a word!!  And here it is on my stamp set!!  Well, "ain't" that interesting?!?  LOL

This is a very fun set to play with though.  It is a hostess set that is retiring at the end of the month. I have only used two of the images in this set.  Which is too bad.  I thought it was such a cute set but I just never got around to using it much.  I had too many other sets to play with!  So in a week or so you will be finding this set in my web store. I will be adding some more of my clear block sets to the store soon too.  I need to get them off my self to make room for more new ones.  

I thought I would try my hand at making a get well card.  I don't have many on hand and I figured the more I had on hand the less I would need them (according to Murphy's Law!).  

The base of my card is white.  The next layer is a piece of black card stock and then another piece of white on top of that.  I used one of the embossing folders to give it some texture.  Then I stamped and layered the image.  I colored it and set it in place on top of the layers using some Dimensionals.  

I tied a piece of black ribbon around the black and white layer before I had taped it in place.  Oh and I used some decorative paper for the colored strip on the left and under the image.  I'm not fond of how it looked under the image.  I think I would have been better off using a piece of coordinating card stock instead.  But what's done is done and I'll know better the next time, right???  

I do like this layout.  It allows you to use some of the smaller images and yet have a nice looking Clean And Simple (CAS) card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Oh, I really like the dsp under the image. I thought, " I wouldn't have thought to do that, and I like it!" I'm gonna give it a try. I like everything about your card. It is lovely how you took one simple, small image and made a beautiful card with it. I love your blog and appreciate how you enter something almost every day...sometimes more.

Ain't it the truth. Love is grand no matter what words you use. I just love your card. The black really makes it pop. Or maybe the card makes the black pop. Either way, it's great!
