Purr-fect Love

Oh, am I so glad to be able to stamp again! I've missed my stamps, card stocks, inks and oh, those ribbons... LOL! Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome and warm wishes, I sure do appreciate you all.


The main image is from Stampavie, Lelo Design You Go First. I purchased some of the Lelo Design after the holidays as a Christmas gift for myself and I've been dying to use them. They are just adorable and I think these two are just purr-fect for Valentines Day.

Anyway, while browsing thru blogs and getting my mojo back into action, I saw Monica's sketch challenge last week for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. A little late for all 8 sketch challenges but I sure would love to join in the fun. I used my new Scallop Circle Nestabilities that I got this Christmas from my sister (thanks, Pen!) for the base of the card. The heart is a chipboard and sponged using Red Riding Hood classic ink and sentiment is a Stampin' Up rub-on.

This weekend ..... I plan to STAMP, STAMP, STAMP! :)
