Waiting for Love

I remember well, standing at the edge of the dance floor in Grade School, during dance class, waiting and hoping some boy, any boy, would ask me to dance, and this card made those memories oh so real.  Of course I wasn't quite that thin! lol, but well....maybe that cute!  This week at Stampotique it's all about love, love is in the air, love is every where, and I hope you and your love have a wonderful day together.  Spread your love to all those around you and have fun.....love is not for a day, love is forever.


Simply said I love that you took the time to stop by!   hugz...

I also remember those days of waiting to be picked to dance or be on a team!!! I have cupid shooting love arrows and hoping your little darling will get hit with the love bug! Your card is so cute in a very cool way! Love the buttons! Have a "Lovin" day!

Hi Gerrie~

This card is great! It reminds me of 8th grade, too! Only, I was about her size...my nic name was Olyve Oyl...from Popeye! lol And, I haven't seen that size in a long, long time!

It wasn't until out of high school that my hair was colored blue in parts...not purple, though. LOVE her hair!

You did a great job on this card. I love her outfit and the purse or valentine. I really like the bg dp and what you did to it. I have no idea what it is...but it looks great! So much fun...which is what I tend to expect on your blog, either in the art or the writing...or both...and yes...
"Love is in the Air"....OOOOoooohhh.

He IS Able,

Gerrie,

You make me laugh and have so much fun when I visit your blog! I don't laugh very much in life.... but you always get me laughing at myself. Thank you for that!

You're a great friend!
