Challenge 124 at Aud Sentiments - Another Valentine

Gee it's warm today, the car interior is pretty hot and I've had to pop out a couple of times in it. A quick trip to the shops with my dil this morning and then headed out for craft with a few friends this afternoon. The first one this year as we follow the school terms so we all have a bit of family time too.
Well it's time for a new challenge at Aud Sentiments and this fortnight the theme is to add a Valentine or Love
Sentiment. I chose to do a Valentine card. Our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine Stamps, lots of fab images in the shop so don't forget to pop in and take a look.
Here is my card...... a bit more jazzed up than I usually do, lol, even added a flower.

SU Perfect Plum cardstock for the cardbase
White cardstock for heart diecut, sentiment and image
SU Real Red cardstock for heart diecut
SU Elegant Eggplant cardstock for oval diecut
DP from Sugar & Spice Studio - 12x12 paper pad ~Chantilly
Image is from Lacy Sunshine Stamps - Patchy Penny's Teddy Bear
Sentiment is from SU Good Greetings
Dies - Nellie Snellen (large heart) Sizzix (small embossed heart)
Nestie Dies - Floral Ovals, Classic Ovals Large
Copic Markers
Memento Black inkpad
Flower - not sure, I bought loose from my local craft shop

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Challenge #231 ~ Anything Goes
Art Impressions Rubber Stamps - Challenge 152 ~ Have A Heart
C.R.A.F.T. Challenges - Challenge 296 ~ Valentine's Day/Love
Simon says Stamps - Simon Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything Goes

We have a visitor just arrived so I had better go and put in an appearance instead of sitting here typing away, so ......... we would love to see you entering the challenge this fortnight. Check out the blog and you'll find a freebie sentiment from Ginny H, one of my teamies. Don't forget, we all like to know what others think of our work, so pop in and leave us a comment, we do appreciate reading what you have to say.
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,


  1. I like the texture you got into this design Sandy with the embossed heart and the frilly die cuts! That image is so cute with the well loved, patched teddy! I also really like your approach to the sentiment with the separate words matted and attached... I have yet to try that - what am I waiting for??!! If you see it on my next card, you will know you inspired me!
