Love is in the air

I made this card about 3 weeks ago, and never finished it off.  It needed to be glued together and the ribbon added.  Then I got an email from my friend Jeanie, reminding me that I have not posted anything in a while. Well, one can only post a card if you have one to post, right! At least someone got me going and I finally finished this card, lol!

This image is a Penny Black stamp, which one of my fellow South African crafting buddies sent me a looong time ago.  Sharon I hope you didn't think that I gave your images away, hehehe, I will never be that silly.  Thanks again, and wish I was not so lazy so I could use them all.
I coloured the image with prismacolor pencils and blended it with sansador (gamsol). Then I cut it in a rectangle, rounded the corners with a corner rounder and distressed the edges with a paper distresser. There's some glitter on the hearts but my photos never show those little details. The doily border is a martha stewart border punch. Almost forgot!! The paper is also from the huge pile which Paula sent me! Now that I have all her paper, I wish I could make cards just as beautiful as hers....!
Of course I need to share an updated picture of Lady Ayla Belle. She LOVES the garden and is starting to climb the trees just like a little monkey. Not sure I like that idea, I prefer her safe on the ground :-) She will be 5 months next week, and she's still very tiny. The photo doesn't really make her look tiny with all that fluffy hear, and it's extra fluffy cause she had a bath on Friday, woohoo!
Have a lovely Sunday. I am very pleased I managed to fit in a Valentines card. Even if it is just one, lol!

Take care

Well, I LOVE your card but I have to say I am even more impressed that you were able to bathe your cat. I read once that trying to bathe a cat is like trying to sprinkle holy water on the devil and when I tried to bathe my cats I had to agree!

Hope you had a nice Valentine Day and treated all your furry Valentine's to a treat! haha. I spent the night with my furry Valentine's since hubby was working. Love your hedgehogs and glad Jeanie got you moving way over there. :)

Oh wow Meahni, I still have that stamp but could never make it look as beautiful as you have done. You're so quiet lately, hope you're well honey. I still have loads of your images to work through... more hours in the day is what we need. hugs Sharon x
