Love Grows

Hi, guys! Have you finalised your plans for Valentine's Day? Or maybe your Other Half is making arrangements? Mine isn't, he's not really very good at that sort of thing! I do think the timing is unfortunate this year, since it's the first day of Lent, but I reckon that even if you plan to give up chocolate you can make allowances for just one special day!

I've made a Valentine card using this pretty LotV Love Grows stamp.

I used Promarkers to colour, and a spot of Glossy Accents on the watering can and shears. The heart mat is a Spellbinder's die, and so is the mat behind the sentiment. And I've just noticed that I forgot to colour in the flowers on the sentiment! Oops!

The flowers are Wild Orchid crafts, the twiggy leaves are cut with a Nellie Snellen punch. The gingham ribbon and brown baker's twine are from The Ribbon Girl and the little wooden heart button is from stash. The paper is also LotV, from the new Country Lady pad.

Challenges I'm entering:  Sketch Saturday have this lovely sketch:

Crafty Sentiments has a theme of 'Valentine's'

Papertake Weekly has a theme 'Hearts and Flowers'

Craft Your Passion has a theme 'My Valentine'

Come and Get It 'Show us your heart - Love is in the air!'

Thanks for looking, and stay warm and dry!
