Feel The Love

Yesterday for one of my Mother's Day treats my hubby stayed home with Cam for a couple of hours so that I could go to one of my favorite stores, Target. While at Target I found an end-cap with these cute little plaques on sale for 3.24. Well, being the creative thinker that I am I knew that I could take the original design one step further and this is what I came up with:


I bought the chipboard letters at Big Lots for $1, and the papers are SU's DP "Afternoon Tea". I sanded down the edges with my sanding blocks and then used a sponge and Close to Cocoa ink on the edges of the letters. I am so pleased with how this turned out! I think I might have to take a trip back to Target to buy what they had left! I hope Monday is treating you well!
