... Hi - I didn't expect to post again today, but I realised if I didn't, I'd miss the deadline to submit my card for this week's Retro Sketches - RS49 challenge. I've combined the sketch challenge with the delicious colour challenge over at Waltzingmouse Stamps - WMSMMM3. Here's my card:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Text-It, Off Beat Backgrounds, Faux Fun, Pic-Nic Patterns, Nordic Winter; My Favourite Things - Lovey Dovey Sentiments
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Raspberry Ripple, Real Red; Memento - London Fog; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Hearts (S4-136) #1, Scalloped Hearts (S4-137) #1
Accessories: Cuttlebug EF - Love's in the Air; SU Card - Black, Rich Razzleberry, Raspberry Ripple, Real Red; White Lustre card and Grey card from stash
I think these colours are just fabulous and perfect for a romantic themed card. I started off by stamping a selection of WMS patterns onto white card and cutting out little hearts. I made coordinating mats for each heart. Next I cut a panel of Real Red card onto which I layered a panel of white card which I embossed with these sweet love hearts. I finished off with a bold sentiment stamped in Versafine. A clean, simple and fun Valentine card.
Kathryn had a Snow Day today and she invited one of her friends over in the afternoon. They spent most of the day inside, but for a mad 15 minutes they went out to play in the snow!!! I got out my camera to capture the fun and took a few more of the area. Here are a couple of photos taken this afternoon; if you want to see them all - click on this link.
That's all for now - it's almost time for bed. I'm off to a craft class tomorrow - making a scrapbook page that has a shabby, vintage look - completely out of my comfort zone!!! Should be lots of fun!

- I'm married to my best friend, Jonathan, and he's very supportive, or should that be tolerant, of my crafting addiction!!! We have two wonderful children, Ben and Kathryn. I am blessed with a loving family and am surrounded by friends, both virtual and real-life. I believe in life-long learning and graduated a couple of years ago with a BSc in Chemistry. If I'm not in my craft room making cards, then you might find me reading, taking photos, or simply being with the family.
