Happy Valentines Day

Can't believe its already one o'clock!
Where is time going these days? 
Anyhow for toughs of you how follow my Facebook page will already know who won the stamp set. 
But for my blogger friends the winner was: 
Victoria O'Neill 
Congratulations Victoria!

Now onto today's card... 
As I'm sure you are all aware we have a little special day approaching... 
Yes, Saint Valentines Day!
Love it or hate it,
Its such a 'cute' day with what it signifies for people. 

Well sadly no Valentine for me this year but doesn't stop me celebrating it!
So here is the card I made.

I really wanted to use loads of colour and make the card with bright! 
I managed it! Yay!
I used the sentiment from You Are Loved (123779). It's just so cute!
I have been dying to try this 'Chalkboard' technique
(using white on black card stock and making it look messy) 
I quite like it to be honest. 
Might being seeing more of it! 
I also love the effect I achieved with Two Step Stamping! 
Using the stamp set is Stippled Blossoms (126747) just look at these flowers turned out
I used Bashful blue and Island Indigo. 

Anyhow I've bored you enough with my gibber gabber! 
Have a lovely Sunday
