Love is in the Air

Hello again, a hot day today and lots of wind as well! I felt sorry for the bike riders from the Tour Down Under race heading off into a head wind and about a 4 hour race. I heard they were about 30 mins later than what was expected in one of the small towns they rode through. I had another of my old friends contact me last night and we organised to meet this morning and walk up my street to the main road and watch the bikes set off. We stood in the shade of a fence, not very wide, LOL, to try and keep out of the heat before they whizzed past us. We then walked down to the shopping area and had a hard time finding a place to get a coffee as there were so many people around. Finally found a little place down an alley which was very retro. There were old vinyl records adorning the walls and old mirrors and posters. The tables and chairs were old too with the laminate table tops. We had our coffee and sat and chatted for a while and then ordered food. It was a good meal and it was great catching up. She also left with the promise of us "girls" getting together soon.
We'll see if that pans out. Finished off the rest of the day with getting several loads of washing done and playing ball with the dogs while I hang it on the line. LOL, as soon as I go out the back door they have the ball for me to kick as I put the clothes up. I'm sure Cody would make an excellent fielder for the cricket team as he quite often manages to snatch the ball out of the air before it hits the ground.
Here is my card for today,
I've used SU Real Red cardstock for the base, then a white layer that I put through an embossing folder with little dots. I used a Fiskar's border punch and left the other white panel plain for a bit of contrast. I used both the plain and scallop circle nesties to cut the red and white circles and stamped the image in SU Choc Chip straight onto the plain white circle and then coloured with Copic Markers.
Ribbon and the little heart charm are from stash. Nearly forgot to tell you about the image! It's a Penny Johnson stamp from Stampavie called "Kiss Me" it comes with a little spray of mistletoe as well, so it could be used for Christmas as well.
