Happy Valentines Day!

Morning,

At last I'm on holiday and finding some much needed time to craft! Hurray! Our school review went extremely well and this week I've just been trying to chill out a little and recover from the stress and preparation involved in it all. We're now looking ahead to our HMI inspection which is due just after Easter, which isn't long but it would be great to get it over and done with before the summer holidays as we have had such a big build up to it for the last year and a half!

Anyway, on to cheerier things. Here is a card that I made for Steven for Valentines Day today. Unfortunately, he is unwell with tonsilitis the poor soul! Hopefully his card cheered him up!

I made this card using a digi download of Ian and Anya from The Greetings Farm, the gorgeous papers and sentiment are Old Fashioned Girl kit from Pink Petticoat loveheart buttons are from paperchase and the black cord from IKEA. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Think I'll need to get some of the Greetings Farm stamps as the images are so sweet.

Hoping to pop back on later to post some other bits and pieces that I've made this week. I have two birthday cards to make for tomorrow and I'm planning on doing this weeks Penny Black Challenge as I haven't done it for ages. I bought a new Penny Black stamp last weekend so I'm looking forward to using that!

Have a great Valentines Day whatever you are doing!
