~Every.Single.Day.~

Hello friends! Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday evening.
We've been so focused on our wedding planning, that we needed to take some time out and get out of the city  and all the madness. So we escaped last weekend for a lovely visit at home. 

 Having a little break is always so nice...Especially when it is shared with family. 

While at home, I had a bit of time to go over some recent comments and emails from all of you and I am so thankful for each and every visit and all the sweet words!

 Also, I recently entered a card + box duo into a contest held by Bety! I was so excited to see my creations featured on her blog...So a HUGE thank you to Bety for featuring my card and for the lovely prize...What an incredible honour!!! I've been playing with the collage set she so kindly gifted to me, and I will have projects to show very soon. 

If you have a chance, visit her little shop on Etsy... It is so very lovely! Here are the beautiful tickets I picked, just in case you might want some too :)

Now onto my project for the day..
Another Valentine's card (really been loving all the love-day stuff) created with all of you in mind. 
I treasure your friendship and support every single day :)
I'm dedicating this V-day card to all of you


Created with few soft colored papers and a lot of layers...I used a few different stencil shapes (from years of collecting tags, which I keep in a pile to use over and over again as stencils).
I also used a beautiful new embossing folder by Tim Holtz, and a Prima rose.


For this card, I used the larger die-cut doily die from  this set from MFT stamps, and the smaller scalloped die-cut is from this Spellbinders set.


I used one of my fave stamps (the beautiful heart with all the text) from this Vintage Blue Glitz stamp set.
For the edges I used the Antique Linen Distress Ink and to ink the embossed 'love' I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I am off to have a warm cup of tea and try and pick our wedding song...Wish me luck!

Nitey Nite
