Hello To You All, I hope you are well, but if not, sending out healing and positive thoughts for a speedy recovery.
Happy Valentine's Day, did you get a card landing on the mat this morning? Do you remember when as a youngster the excitement or dread around the 14th of February? Excitement when you knew you were popular and that you'd receive some cards....at least one, and dread that it would be some kind of miracle if you did receive one, but more than likely not and that you'd have to decide whether you lied or owned up to not getting a single one. Oh life could be cruel in those days. I was always in the dread group, but I did own up, dismissing it all as nonsense and don't believe in it at all......yeah right!
Of course now I never need to worry as Alistair always remembers, and he has bought some beautiful ones over the years we have been together. Anyway today I'm showing what I made for him;
I decided to make a canvas instead of a card this year, I painted on black gesso and then stamped CB hearts from the Swirly Pets set and heat embossed with red WOW powder. The large Love sentiment is also from CB. I had the wooden heart in my stash so painted that up with Imagination Crafts Red Starlight paint and stamped a lovely little sentiment from Creative Stamping magazine and embossed in black powder. added a few little sequins and a bit of black ribbon. I'm pleased to say he loved it.
I had a day off from Milo and Rowan, so we went for a drive to Beauly on the Black Isle and had a lovely lunch at the Priory Hotel, and even had entertainment as there were some folks from two rest homes booked in for lunch and they had engaged a singer/player who sang Country and Western songs. It just all added to a lovely day.
That's me for now Folks, have a lovely evening, and see you soon,
