Morning Folks!
Can you believe we are into February already? I'm always so glad to see January behind us. Of course, Valentine's Day is creeping up fast, so over at Sweet Stampin' our new challenge is 


I saw this PB stamp in the sale over at The Glitter Pot in January and despite trying hard to resist, eventually I just had to get it!!  My excuse is that I 'needed it' to make a Valentine's card for my hubby. Here's the end result, quite CAS, he's not into fussy cards and I think perhaps the hint of pink was pushing the limits!!

Here's a closer look at the cute couple:

I found this charm in my stash and thought it was very appropriate:

Stamps - Penny Black 'joyride' and LOTV sentiment
Promarkers and glossy accents
Papers - Forever Friends 'Forever Love'
Ribbons - Hobbycraft
Charm and brad from stash

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and I hope you'll visit the Sweet Stampin' blog and check out the rest of the inspiration from Team Jacky!
