To be honest i nearly didn't enter the Penny Black Saturday Friends Challenge, as the Challenge is 'Love Is -----' and although i had the word Love (it was on a wooden stamp 'Love You'), i didn't have the 'IS' bit or so i thought, till i went routing around my transparent sets and found the sentiment 'Spring Is Here' on 'Garden Friends', -  as i couldn't do a computer generated sentiment as my inkjet has run out !!!
The stamp i'm using is one that i've had for ages in fact it came as part of a package for taking out a magazine, about 2 years ago.

Right on to todays Card and Challenges :

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where Challenge No: 137 is 'Love Is --- ' and you have to finish it off

Allsorts  - where Challenge No: 89 is 'Love Love Love'

Basic Grey - where Challenge No: 37 is 'All Heart'

Stamptacular Sunday - where Challenge No: 97 is 'Hearts Gone Wild'
