Valentines Bonanza

Wow – doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?! Or in my case, working hard!! Unfortunatley I haven’t had much free time to play :-( but have tried to make up for it today – well its Valentines Day next week and I had better get a move on or else there will be major sulks in our house!
There are so many challenges out there with a Valentines theme – must be a record  26 challenges in one go for me – its gonna take an age to write up!
So here’s OH card!

Stuff used
Penny Black Stamp coloured with watercolours (Koi)
Papers – Basic Grey
Hearts and flowers made with punches from Stampin’ Up via the lovely Emma.
Charm and pearls from Quixotic Cards
Pins from local sewing shop!

I have entered it into the following challenges:

Sketch is from Sketch Saturday
PBSC – to use pearls and pins
Cute Card Thursday – to use spots and dots
Drunken Stampers - Be My Valentine (with a twist of metal)
Your Next Stamp - Charms
ABC - N is for New(new punches, pearls and love charm!)
Penny's Challenges - Valentine/Love
Simon Says - Photo Inspiration
Paper Play Challenges - Love Notes
Charisma Cardz - I Love You
C.R.A.F.T. - Valentines or Love
Stamp Something - Love Somethings
Stampin For The Weekend - Valentines Themed
Fussy & Fancy - Hearts
Crazy 4 Challenges - Be My Valentine
Challenge Up Your Life - Valentines and Hearts
La La Land Crafts - Hearts,
By The Cute & Girly - Love
Double Dutch - Be My Valentine
Floral Fantasies - Moving (the charm )
Raise The Bar - Hearts
Tellen's Place - Tic Tac, Toe (I have used flower, punch and bling)
Papertake Weekly - Love Actually
Creative Card Crew – Valentines
My Grafico - Metal,

To change the topic, my beloved son turned 17 this week – now I do feel old – and he is starting driving lessons soon – really old now!  It’ll be interesting, if not a little scary, probably more for me than him!

Until the next time!
Keep well everyone
