Gain a day...

...gain a friend, that's what they say,
by they, I mean... well I don't know who I mean, the 'Old Wives' I suppose, I wonder if its true.  All day I've been thinking its Wednesday, why? I dunno.  By 2 O'clock I realised it is,  in fact (as I'm sure you are aware), Tuesday... I wonder who my new friend will be!
I made this matchbook card from a piece of My Minds Eye paper (its pretty thick), it measured 12" x 4", I then scored it at 5 1/2" and 11", this made the base for my card.  The hearts are cut from the 'DOODLECHARMS' cartridge on my cricut expression.  I used 'shadow', 'heart' (p.85) and 'heart-s' all at 3 3/4" from black, pink and red cardstock (from my ever growing scrap pile), with a little bit of ribbon and a heart embellishment my card is now ready for the 'Bitten by the Bug 2' Love is in the Air - Heart or Cupid Challenge and the 'Twisted Tuesday Challenge' for a loving couple (the twist?) black ribbon.  Have a productive crafting day xxx
