Love You More Than Bacon....and World Card Making Day! :)

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Bacon Pecan (using the last drops of my bacon syrup.... heavy sigh.....)

Now for those of you who know me and my card style, you are probably gonna need to sit down for this one. you'll be quite shocked. it's kinda CAS. yeah, I know you are just downright gobsmacked about now....

but it is for a really really really good cause! I promise! :)

I'm adding this card to the Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop.... gosh, I need another cup of coffee after writing that one out. grins!  so in light of the criteria for all of the OWH cards, I needed this card to be pretty simple compared to anything else I make. not to worry, I have every remaining day of this year to keep my shabby/vintage self satisfied. ;)

as I was contemplating just what in the world I could make for OWH that would go along with the 'love' theme, I remembered this amazing Kelly Purkey bacon set. it does have another name, but it will forever be the 'bacon set' to me. :) the set was an exclusive to Simon Says Stamp a while back. the flair was also a KP design for them.

I used the Lawn Fawn speech bubble border die along with the fun set and flair. heart die is from SU! added a wee bit of distressing, a button from my stash, and some red baker's twine. easy peasy. :)  the speech bubble portion is actually the top flap of the card. the 'I heart you....' is stamped on the inside of the card. does that make sense?

just a reminder for anyone who is interested to join my Pink-tober blog candy here at this post.

Happy World Card Making Day to all of you! now I'm off to go get all pink and glittery and inky since my OWH card is done. tee hee! will catch ya laters, babe!
