MCT April 24th Edition Release Blog Hop

Hello! You should have arrived from Nancy's Blog, if not, head HERE to start at the beginning. For my card today I did some simple masking to make a one layer card {well almost one layer}. I started by cutting out the frame from the new Stitched Capture Frame and Arrow Dies. I cut it from Post-It paper which is sticky all over like a Post-It. I positioned it on my card and stamped over it with the fabulous Love Collage Background Stamp. I then traced around the frame with a black marker...Peeled up the mask and BAM...you're left with the negative image. :)
I stamped the people from the new set called We Are Family. The "missing you" greeting is from the new set called It's All About You. And the arrow is from the new You Are Here set. 

Your next stop on the hop is ROSY

  71. Can I just say what a comfort to discover somebody that
    genuinely understands what they're discussing on the web. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. It's
    surprising you're not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.
