The Kiss

It's a really gloomy day here. We are having such mild weather for January. Most days we don't have the heating on until the evening which is really odd, but saves on heating costs. We've hardly even had any frosts yet. Starting to think about getting ahead with the various special days and this is my first Valentine's card. I have 10 to make for a couple of local shops where I sell a few cards.

I've used the gorgeous digi from Gingerloft, just adding a touch of red to her dress. The papers are Country Companions Lover's Lane. The heart border was made with my new cutting die from Crafty Sentiments . Can see this being used a lot. The pearl hearts are from The Works.
Challenges:
Delicious Doodles All things new (cutting die)
Just Tracys Love is in the air

I'll be back later with another post I hope. Don't forget to enter my candy if you haven't already done so.

Oh Marianne...this card is so romantic with the couple in the middle. I love those heart embellishments!
The weather is very mild here too. Usually we have had a couple of winter storms by now...not even one has appeared....which is fine by me! Easier to travel to those scrapbooking stores!
