Retro Romance

Evening Everyone
What's it like in your neck of the woods?
It's bitterly cold here, and although we haven't had any of the white stuff so far I'm not sure that we have escaped totally unscathed. Still it is only February so we shouldn't be surprised by cold weather but somehow we always are. Maybe it has something to do with the heatwave we had in March last year lol.
What it has meant is that all I have felt like doing is curling up with a nice cuppa and a hot water bottle, oh what a glamorous life us Grannies lead :O)
As I haven't done anything remotely crafty today I'm afraid that I will have to share another of the cards that I made for my last class at Davina's.
The class was aimed at making cards suitable for a Valentine, Wedding or Anniversary and used a wonderful Heart stamp by Magenta 37,257Q Retro Romance.
It is a fabulous stamp which stamps and embosses beautifully and best of all can be split into separate panels making it incredibly versatile.
The flower vase would even work well for a simple birthday card.
We also played with one of my Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page designs, a much neglected piece of my crafting equipment.
Of course no romantic card would be complete without a few pearls and some flowers.
Time to refill my hot water bottle I think and cuddle down for the night.

  1. Yup, hideously cold, damp and grey here... had completely forgotten that we had summer in March last year!!

    Anyway, on to the card - absolutely adorable! That stamp really is amazing, I've really been enjoying what you've been creating with it...
