You will always be my valentine!

Good Evening Blogging Friends, and I hope it has been a good day for you all.  Thank you to everyone who left comments on my last post, always welcome.

Just another short post tonight, nothing much in the way of news, been working hard at the paid job and by the time I get home and do what I have to do, there isn't much time for crafting. However I began a card before I left for work this morning, I'm up so early I think I might as well use the time well, and have finished it this evening, here it is;
and a close up;

This is a wonderful Mo Manning digi stamp called Young Love, the minute I saw it I just had to have it, it's such a great image.  I've coloured it with a mixture of soft coloured pencils and pastels and used a  xcut die to make the frame. I've matted and layered eith co-ordination card and First Editions Dessert Blooms papers, sentiment is computer generated, heart charm from The Ribbon Girl, everything else from my box of tricks.

I think this well might be Alistair's valentines card, the image makes me smile and I like to think we will look as happy as that when were that age, whatever "that age" is..........

Thank you for visiting, that's me for tonight,
