Happy Valentine's Day!




Safe to post this card now.  I find making cards for my nearest and dearest so hard, they never seem good enough.  For this one I tried a different approach and didn't agonise over it for days - just went for it. Him indoors loved it, so my new approach must have worked!

I've used the fabulous new digi stamp from Pink Petticoat - Quirky Qwerty, you get this lovely typewriter image and lots of sentiments to cut out and stick.  There'll be lots of  ideas and inspiration from the Creative Team over on the Blog this week.  Another favourtie of mine is the Organics Kraft Pack, 7 different shades and textures of Kraft.  For some added texture I've printed the Kraft onto ribbed card.

I'm entering it for the monthly challenge over at Samuel Taylor's blog (thanks for the link Terrie).  There's a chance to win some Copic markers and the theme is simple. "Copic Chic/ Promarker Gal" - so anything coloured with those pens goes!  I've coloured the typewriter quite simply with a 'Tan' Promarker.  I really must learn how to do the shading thing!
