Love is Kindness Workshop Card!

I was honored to have a workshop last Wednesday at a friends house; it is always such fun to spend an afternoon stamping and making cards with friends!  This was one of the three projects we made:

The Love is Kindness stamp has quickly become a favorite of mine, and I also am in love with the Something Lacy background stamp!  Here is a picture of the inside (please ignore the smudge just above the tulips, I really DON'T know how it got there):
