Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be ...

Happy Valentines Day and I hope you had some nice romantic surprises. This is the card I made for my DH. I used a cute Margaret Sherry image which came as a freebie with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine. The images were already stamped ready to be coloured. I also used the Berry Fizz glitter which was part of the same freebie. The glitter stripes behind the main image are PaperCellar glitter borders - very nice and easy to use. The tiny hearts above the cat are from the punched heart border.

A quick peek at the inside. This is as 'soppy' as I get but I chanced upon this Robert Browning quotation and thought it was very fitting.

Lilac Criss Cross Card

Oh dear, we're now into February and this is my first post of 2012. Time just seems to fly by and I don't seem to be back into card-making mode as yet so this share is one I made before Christmas.  Speaking of Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive some lovely crafting goodies (which haven't been touched yet) including five LOTV stamps and three Martha Stewart punches.  Am hoping to have a good sort/tidy-up of stash next week and take it from there.
