Love in the clouds

This card was created because some people never find "True Love" and they give up hope of finding true love. They dream of true love, they think of true love, they wish and pray for true love and it never comes fast enough for them. Hold on to your dreams of true love and have faith, it's coming!

Sweet Smell Scratch Card

This is a scratch and sniff card. The cherries on the card actually smells like "cherry". Iknow you can't smell the cherries fromthe computer, I wish you could as they smell wonderful! I used wild card for the scallop and stamped Dream Big, only because I didn't have a stamp to say smell me or scratch me or sweet smell, etc. The flowers are a cuttlebug folder.
To make the scent for the cherries, if you have a stamp with cherries or fruit on it, press the "fruit" stamp on a VersaMark pad, color your fruit if needed then stamp your image on the cardstock. In a small bowl, combine 1 pack of kool aid and 1 teaspoon of glitter (I used dazzling diamond glitter), mix well. Then spread your kool aid & glitter mixture on your fruit. Use your heat tool to heat the fruit, but do not over heat!
