More on the prizes after you see my card :)

you tickle my fancy

You tickle my fancy, valentine!  I wasted a few sheets of paper to get my sentiment to print just right, before adding some CSS feathers.

you tickle my fancy


I'm also big on the fringe these days - you will be seeing me use my Martha Stewart scissors for more than just card-stock grass in the upcoming weeks *wink*
