I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I had a bit of left over paper in my "Star-Crossed Lovers" kit from Alpha Stamps and took advantage of Grandma hanging out with the kids. This little ATC book was a speed-crafted piece, because you never know how long you have at the craft table.

I cut out five 3.5" x 4.5" rectangles from paper in the kit as well as six short pieces to use as pockets to hold the ATCs. The pages are held together with a few strips of ribbon that have been sewn on. Then I painted and inked and gessoed and stitched all that stuff.





It seemed right to make really simplistic cards to match the feeling of the quotes.









Happy Valentine's Day!

I like this so much and have always wanted to make something similar and now I have! It's based on positive affirmations rather than hilarious snark but your wonderful idea sparked the project so there you go. Sometimes prickles lead to sweet, sweet love, haha.
