Well in my very hectic week (preparing a 4 year olds party) - i managed to find the time to use this cutie of a stamp, that i bought about 18 months ago from a friend who no longer wanted it and as i don't do red roses - yes i know i'm weird, but i do like pink roses and having bought some fabby papers last year, out they came again, - it also gives me a chance to make a start on the Valentines Cards for SOS for next year ( but i have to send them off in December).

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :

Oldie But A Goodie  - where Challenge No: 9 is a Sketch

Penny Black At Allsorts - where January's Challenge is 'All You Need Is Love'

Flourishes - where Challenge FTTC99 is 'Flowers'

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
