Long Kiss !


Gee, how cold is it and they are expecting more snow by the weekend, oh yipee, just as the half term starts, and i've paid for son to do a couple of things too, which i guess could be cancelled !!

The papers and colours i've picked are unusual for me, i wanted to take part in the Basic Grey challenge, but i was struggling to find a pad that was suitable for the image and flowers, that i wanted to use in the end i came across Two Scoops, which was subtle enough for what  i wanted. I had a play with my Tim Holtz - Elegant Flourish and i must use it more often, the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Todays Card and Challenges :

Basic Grey - where Challenge No: 61 is 'Love / Valentine' - I've used the 'Two Scoops' papers

Wild Orchid  - where Week No: 42 is 'Love Is' - all flowers are from Wild Orchid

By The Cute And Girly - where February's Challenge is : 'Love Is In The Air'

Image - Penny Black - 'Long Kiss !'
Papers - Basic Grey - 'Two Scoops'
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Swirl - Sizzix / Tim Holtz - 'Elegant Flourish'
Punched Edge - MS - 'Valentine Lace'
Yellow Gems from stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x

Aaawww this is gorgeous Sam, adore the little hedgies and such pretty papers too :)

p.s the punch I used on my 'Home Tweet Home' card is a Martha Stewart deep edge punch and it's called 'Skylands Snowflake', I got mine online from Oyster Stamps, who I think do a great price at £14.50 and free P & P! :D
