Bloggers Only Valentine Swap - Lynn Mercurio

Paper: Pretty in pink, close to cocoa, glossy white cardstock, tempting turquoise, designer series patterned paper: Loves Me. Ink: Craft Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Real Red reinker, Pink Passion reinker, Petite Rose Reinker. Stamps: Noteworthy, Double Line Doodle, Floral. Accessories: rubbing alcohol, Winter White embossing powder, blue stickles, turquoise grosgrain, flirty velvet turquoise ribbon, dimensionals.

Lynn's card ROCKS! I just love the floral background! It is so subtle but so packs a punch. The stickles around the circle are fun too! (Now that I am not a stickles virgin, I love them lots). I love how everything on this card matches so well. The polished stone look in the background is pretty snazzy too!!!

Hi Amanda,

I just adore your blog and love your What's for Dinner Wednesday. I noticed that under "what I'm reading" on your blog you have the book Girls Night In listed. This book is special to me (not because it is the best book ever written, though it is good) but because it was given to me along with a beautiful velvet bookmark about two years ago by a friend (I was going through a horrible divorce at the time and she knew I was in a bad way). Anyway, she was murdered about a month after she gave it to me. So when I saw it on your blog, it just brought those memories back to me. I miss her and I will keep the book and bookmark forever as a reminder of her and her kindness. She was only 20 years old.
Sorry, didn't mean to be a downer, but she was a beautiful soul.
