LOVE {Path of Positivity}

This month our theme for Challenge #11 at Path of Positivity is LOVE.  

HAVE I TOAD you lately that I LOVE YOU (always remember to tell those near and dear to you, you love them as often as possible, because tomorrow they might not be with us any more)

I used the quirky CARL I LOVE YOU from SCRIBBLES DESIGNS who is one of our sponsors this week. You can purchase Carl here.   The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC and be purchased here


The design papers are from Basic Grey and FabScraps.  I have coloured the images with Copic Markers and the sentiment with dry chalks.  The buttons and raffia are from my stash.







The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are: 
      Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your LOVE creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.11. Can't wait to see your LOVE creations.  
         
      Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
      Thank you to all my wonderful Followers old and new.  Your visits here and the love you leave behind are truly treasured - thanks so much.  

      Creative Hugs

      129. You are so right--we need to ensure that the people in our lives know how much we love them since there may not be as much time as we'd like. Your card is certainly one way to tell someone special how much you care. I love the double Carl's and the stitching around them. That is a really cool idea. Cute sentiment and great use of buttons too! Thanks for creating another wonderful card for PoP.

        Hugs,
        Lisa
