Sealed with a Kiss

***WARNING: I'm sleepy, but determined to get this done...so excuse the typos. Thanks!***

I know...I know...it's been over two weeks since my last post and for that I'm deeply apologetic. I have no excuse, but to say...NOTHING....because it would be pitiful to attempt an excuse when I don't have one worth of your time. All I can say is I appreciate your sticking with me. Now, I'm back in the saddle again and off to the races. The latest OCC Sketch Challenge really tickled my fancy. So, I knew I just had to particpate - not only is the sketch fun, but the prize is super sweet...a customer banner and watermark.

The card started off with a black base and I got the idea to use this from last weeks SCS Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC204). I love ribbon and I thought this sketch was just beggin' for some ribbon - so I obliged the card with some red satin ribbon. I used red marker to ink the kiss stamp and embossed with clear E.P. a couple of time until the finish was smooth. I found this quote by Levende Waters at Quote Garden and I thought it was very fitting...cuz I feel this way about my hubby. I know it's so sweet its nauseating (I'm making myself sick), but the truth is the truth.

Again, thanks for sticking with me and I will make it worth your time with some upcoming eye candy with some pretty interesting stories.

'til I craft again...
