From a Friend!

You might remember that I used to be on the Crafting for All Seasons Design Team up until Christmas when I took the difficult decision to cut back on my DT commitments and left the team. Well, I couldn't stay away completely so I 'm back this week as a Guest Designer.

The challenge theme for the fortnight is 'Show us Some Romance' and I have made a card with a fabulous stamp that I received from a crafting friend.

Ellen - The Serendipitous Stamper, went to the CHA this year and brought back lots crafty goodies to share with her followers as Candy on her blog - I was lucky enough to win the adorable Art Impressions Valentot Heart Stamp.

I decided to water colour, which I don't do very often, I followed the design on the packaging and I have to say I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

My papers are LOTV along with the sentiment tags.  I cut the little hearts with a Lawn Fawn die and the punched border is a very old Fiskars punch.

I decorated the inside of my card using the leftover papers.

The sponsor this time is : 

and the prize is 4 non coloured images

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Love is in the Air
Shopping Our Stash Challenge 137 - Love Me Tender (stash ribbon/papers)
Crafty Boots Challenge - BINGO (pink, stamp, die cut)
Craft Your Passion Challenge 199 - Love is in the Air

Make sure you pop over to the Crafting for All Seasons Challenge Blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration, you have two weeks to join in with the challenge.
