Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the weekend so far, despite the cold, miserable weather.  All the more reason to stop in and enjoy some crafting.

I made this card to enter into two challenges.

Passion for Promarkers challenge is entitled 'All you need is love' and the I heart Promarkers is KISS - Keep it Sweet and Simple. 

As you all know, CAS is my favoured style, so this was an easy one for me, but I am very lacking in any love themed stamps (hubby and I have never really been into the Valentine thing - not the greatest pair of romantics), but I have dug this digistampboutique image out that I bought last year to make a card for my daughter.  He's still very cute! I used Promarkers (of course) to colour him in and decoupaged the ribbon around the heart.  I used rectangle nesties to cut him out and matted onto scalloped rectangle.  The background card was run through the Wizard using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is from Paula Pasqual which is also mounted onto a circle scalloped nestie.  The ribbon is from stash.

I've got to say bye for now as I think I'm about to be dragged out for a long walk by hubby - we have to get rid of some of our Christmas excess - not really looking forward to this!

Thanks for dropping bye.x
