So glad it's Saturday, it's been such a busy week and I've not been sleeping too well - a long lie this morning was just what the doctor ordered!
It has also been quite an exciting week, my daughter Lynsey got the keys to her first flat on Wednesday so myself & Neil spent a few hours with her and her boyfriend Fin at Ikea picking out new furniture and other smaller items, we then went to see the flat which is in Edinburgh and then out for a celebratory meal with them and our two sons - a fun night ;o)
Also yesterday was the launch of my new challenge blog, our very first challenge (Romance) and a release of new digi stamps mostly with a love theme just in time for Valentine's day.
Last but not least I won a challenge - my Water card from Monday's post won the ABC challenge and a set of fab digis from Pollycraft - thanks guys!
Anyway - onto my dt card for this month's Crafty Calendar challenge our theme this month is Love
and our sponsor Squiggle Stamps was kind enough to supply some digi stamps for the team to use, my image is called Lovey-Dovey and was coloured with Promarkers, I wanted to keep the card very clean and simple so I embossed a small piece of white cardstock and softly inked the edges to go behind my image instead of using patterned paper. I printed and coloured my image twice and used the little hearts from the branches to scatter round and add a little clour to the background. My ribbon was re-cycled from a Christmas present and the sentiment is by Heidi Swapp.
