Smackers!

Hello all!
Well as we all know Valentines Day is right around the corner.  So I was looking for card ideas for my husband of thirteen years.  Then I came across the Addicted to CAS challenge #56 with the code word 'Hugs & Kisses'.  PERFECT!!

The Story Behind the Card:
A couple of years ago grandma sent the kids sheets of lip stickers. The foamy ones, you know the kind, after constantly telling the kids the walls are not your personal palette; only to find they did exactly what you told them not to do. You try to take them off your walls and only to the outer layer comes up, you then left with a foam blob sticker which is sure to take all 50 years of paint off your walls. Yes, that kind.

Well I did what any diligent and caring mother would do, I took them away. Yes, bad, but my walls were at risk!  'I will give them back when they are older' I told myself. Well they sat for years. Then rummaging through this-n-that looking for inspiration I found these little gems!!

SMACKERS I got it!! So with the help of the Addicted to CAS code word I was on my way!! Returning the stickers to my beloved children was not an option a card however, ABSOLUTELY!!

So here we are:
The background circle dots stamp is a perfect
backdrop for the foam lips!
the 'X' and 'O' ribbon balance the card.
So in the end I finished the card and showed the kids.  They said 'Wow mom we love it!!' I said thank you so much as I handed them the extra 2 sheets of leftover stickers..

Thanks so much and we will see you sooner then later!
All the best,
Shawna
