Valentine You'er Mine!

Good Afternoon All and I hope you are all well.  It's been a lovely day here in old Inverness, really spring like, getting cold now though. 
Thank you all for the lovely comments on yesterday's card, I always look forward to reading them.

Well the BAFTA Boy won once again last night.  I saw a little clip at the end of the main programme where he was accepting his award and they showed a moment or two of his animated film.  I had a bit of a lump in my throat watching him and I'm not his mum, so I would imagine that Susan was just so proud.  I know she had a day off today cos no doubt there would be celebrations in the Anderson household last night, and a bit of a hangover today.  Susan has been my manager at work for 14 years and that's how long I have known Will, he was just a wee boy when I began my employment at the Cottage and he was always drawing, and even way back then you could see he had a future in art.

That's the good news, the bas is that I never got my gloves back.  I hope who ever has them finds them lovely and cosy and enjoys wearing them.

My card today is one for a friend who has a new man in her life, and didn't want a serious card, here it is;
I ound this image from Just Inklined and thought it would be perfect, coloured with Promarkers and then I decided to cut around it, now it isn't meant to be a heart, I just thought the piece of card was too big. Papermania embossing folder used on the red card, and black co-ordination card as the background.  Papermania hearts, Kirsty Wiseman sentiment and a computer generated one also.
I've tried to keep it quite simple and fun.

That's all from me tonight, off to Choral  rehearsl later, and as I missed last weeks because of the snow I'm sure there will be plenty to catch up with.

Have a good evening
