Cherrie With Rose

I was saying yesterday that I was going to do another Valentine Card... and so here it is...  not so pleased with the photo unfortunately as it got dark before I managed to take the photo, but I am so pleased with how my card turned out today  ... and I sooo loved colouring and making it.

So a little something about my card .... the stamp I'm using is Cherrie With Rose from Tickled Pink Stamps which just dropped into my letterbox yesterday and which I had won some time ago last month  :) :) :) Isn't she adorable ... and can you blame me for ordering some more stamps : ~   so eagerly now waiting for them


I coloured Cherrie with my promarkers, popped her up with foam, papers are freebie ones from one of my favourite magazines, Cardmaking and Papercraft, which you can also download for free from their site. I have again printed my papers on the textured papers that I bought last time, they look so much better than on normal papers and the distressing came out so nice too. The sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments. Did some stitching again today, added some ribbon and lace as well and  a border punch with my Fiskars punch.

This is the lovely sketch that I followed.

and the lovely challenges....
- Stamp With Fun - THE SKETCH
Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges 5 - PUNCHES
All that Scraps - ANYTHING GOES
Craft Your Days Away 13 - PHOTO INSPIRATION

and some more, Valentine/ Love/ Red Themed ones now... 

Well I'll just have to take another photo tomorrow and come back and upload it, this one is definitely not any good... !!! Now I just hope I'm making it in time to enter my card in the challenge for the sketch I chose which I think closes today.... quick quick .. must hurry hurry ...

Thanks for looking today.

Hugs
