WITH LOVE AHHHHHHH...................................

Morning all!

Nice and early from me today! Feeling sooooo much better now and yep I'm back to work on Thursday :o)
Yep, it's a smiley face! I love and miss my job!, slightly crackers I know, but I am slightly mad anyway lol!
Just would like to say a big thank you for all my lovely friends who wished my daughter luck in her exam, she came home yesterday with a big cheesy smile and fingers crossed she has done well :o)

So onto today's card and I have used a Penny Black stamp I won over at Kelly's when she was doing some fab candy. I thought it was perfect to use now as it's that time of year "Valentine!", so plenty of love all round heheheh. I have teamed this sweetie with Crafters Companion S.W.A.L.K cdrom papers volume 2 and my new heart punch ~ oh I do love this punch!!

This cutie is going into the following challenges :-
Penny Black at Allsorts ~ January ~ All you need is love
Totally Gorjuss # 63 ~ Cuddly
Secret Crafter Saturday # 117 ~ With Love
Friday Sketchers # 137 ~ Fab Sketch

Heart Garland ~ Penny Black
