Tokens Of Love


Although it's sunny here, my goodness it is cold, brr brr - but then i shouldn't complain at least we haven't got snow, unlike Alan who has gone to Poland, where he say's it hasn't stopped snowing since he got there yesterday morning !!, fortunately he's back tonight.  H is doing 'Fairy Tales' at school, so tomorrow i'm taking him, along with my best friend and her brother to see 'Little Red Riding Hood' and a couple of others, so should be good for the little ones.

I like stamps, when you can decoupage them easily and this was one of them (i've used Labels 10 to stamp on), the papers are Basic Grey - 'Bittersweet', the dies are Memory Box - 'Corner Bow' and 'Precious Hearts' (i simply had to get, as i was being teased on a couple of blogs with it :-)), i've distressed the image with Tim Holtz - 'Picked Raspberry' (that i was fortunate enough to win in the lovely Brenda's candy and thanks hun, it's gorgeous too) and 'Spun Sugar', ribbon is from 'The Ribbon Girls'.

Today's Card And Challenges Are :

Basic Grey - where Challenge No: 86 is 'Love Is In The Air' - i've used Basic Grey - 'Bittersweet'

Penny Black At Allsorts - where February's Challenge is 'Pink, Pearly And Swirly'
