Focus on the sentiment - Sweet Stampin'

Hi all,

Back to my regular week for posting some Sweet Stampin' inspiration, and this time we're looking for you to Focus on the sentiment.

I always enjoy this challenge, and I picked one of my favourite sentiments to use this time.

It's not just me, is it? One simply has to love Audrey Hepburn. Is there really anyone out there that doesn't?

The stamp is of course LOTV, and the papers My Mind's Eye. Such a pretty pad, and I'm starting to run low. Noooooooo!

Hope everyone is well. All is good on this end, apart from a very unreliable internet connection these past few days. Our new "upgrade" is anything but!

Have a fantabulous day!

This is really lovely Sammy, the papers were my first MME pad and I still have the odd scrap or two left xx

Oh dear, isn't it rubbish when they stuff your internet, tsk! Hopefully it will settle down soon.

Beautiful card, I do love a bit of Audrey too xx

Very pretty, a bit different to your recent work and I love this quote.
It's devastating when you get to the end of a paper pad - especially if it's one of your favourites, only a fellow crafter will understand!!

Ooooh, I love this card; a gorgeous combo of the sentiment quote and those pretty papers. I have not a lot left of that paper pad and it was a fave of mine too, along with the Madison Avenue one...which I found a pad of a few weeks ago...I was in heaven!

We upgraded to BT Infinity a few months ago and it took a good week or so to settle down; the first week was awful with connection dropping out all the time, slow speeds and generally being really unreliable. We were told it might take a while to settle and after that first week it has been brilliant and very reliable, so if that's what you've had then fingers crossed it works out the same for you. If not, I hope it's soon sorted anyway :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Audrey was a class act from the very beginning, and such a lovely person to watch. I think she must have been beautiful from the inside out too, based on things I've read about her. Love the way you've presented this uplifting sentiment, and the tiny rose pattern with the white texture and the pink/dots pretty together. The brown gauze of the ribbon is a color I wouldn't have thought to use with these other paper colors, but it's perfect!!! TFS & Hugs
