gimme a break...

Here is another card that I made with Molly Stamps Today's Forecast and the Tim Holtz Game Spinners. It would have been perfect for this weeks Color Throwdown of hot pink, kraft and black but I actually made it last week, LOL!

When I was stamping out the sentiments for the card, I couldn't help but use the "gimme a break" phrase. Valentines day was never one of my favorite holidays. I mean, its ok, but its pretty commercialized. There was a time many many years ago back in school when we would wear all black in protest of the sappy holiday. LOL!

supplies used:
stamps: Molly Stamps Today's Forecast, Wing on Things-small
cardstock: Prism kraft
pattern paper: Craft Secret, Doodlebug
ink: Stazon
embellishment: tim Holtz Game Spinner
other: watercolors, colored pencils, eyelet

just a quick tip for the spinner: Set an eyelet in center of the cardfront. Add spinner through the eyelet. The eyelet will lift the spinner up a bit of space rather than dragging on the cardstock.
