Quick and easy!

I was working on some projects last night and stopped to make this quick little valentine.

I love this cat image by justjohanna - purr-fect for Valentines Day (sorry - couldn't resist....).

I covered the image with microbeads. I often forget about these, but I love the look when I remember to do it. It makes the card look so special.

I really like these little 4x4 cards - one thing I didn't notice though is that they came with A2 sized envelopes! (bummer). How did I not notice when I bought them? Sheesh....

If anyone knows of a bulk source for 4.25x4.25 envelopes please let me know. I need them in bulk and the smallest I've ever been able to find is 5x5.

Hope everyone is having a great Friday. So far today I packed up a bird nest for letter N show and tell, viewed a very nice second grade MLK program, and this afternoon I'm going to a Build A Bear Birthday party. Bet you never suspected I have such a wild and crazy social life.

Well, back to my project....

Cute card! It looks like the card is from Amuse...if I remember right they changed the envelopes with their cards because postage is higher for the 4.25X4.25 size envelopes. Something like that!

I LOVE this card! That image is so adorable and the microbeads add such character to the card. I have never used those, maybe I should look for them :D

This card is really cute! I love the look of the microbeads over an image! I keep meaning to pick some up, but they are always last on my to get list and usually get bumped for stamps! Very pretty! :)

Oh My Gosh, this is absolutely adorable. I love how you used the microbeads. Do they make the card heavy?

I am going cold turkey on stamp buying (card is full :( , LOL) but these kitties are sooooooo cute.
