I don't do soppy. With Valentine's Day looming, I am fed up with soppy!
Valentines' Day is dear husband's birthday. We don't do Valentine's day.
We don't really do birthdays either - not cards or presents but we normally have a nice meal around the date - not ON the date 'cos everywhere is full of soppy!!!
I have made a 'not soppy' Love card - made for no other reason than I was feeling a teeny weeny bit soppy.
The heart stamp was a cheapie from Hobby Crafts - bought it as I don't posess any heart stamps and thought it might be needed.... first time it's seen ink!
I used a Brilliance Ink Pad in Rocket Red for the heart and the splats (which are from a Visible Image set).
The ink splatters across the card were a mix of the Rocket Red ink and Festive Berries DI as I wasn't sure if mixing water with just the Brilliance ink would work!
Mounted the heart on a scrap of vellum cut with a nestie, stamped the sentiment in Onyx Black and added a strip of corrugated red card (which means I can go play again over at CAS Mix Up!)
Unsurprisingly there's lots of soppy love themed challenges around so am linking to -
Crafty Purple Frog - Love is All Around
House of Cards - Love theme
Time Out - Inspired by words
(and I have used 'Heart')
Uniko - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Hearts
AAA - CAS
House that Stamps Built -
It's very cold here today. We've had a couple of snow flurries but it hasn't stayed. Changed the bed and done a little bit of housework this morning. Planning now on having a lazy day in the craftie space - in the warm!
Thanks for looking today - have a great weekend whatever you're doing - and if you're doing 'soppy' - enjoy!! x
