 Here is another card for the Hero Arts Blog , the challenge this month is "Love, Friendship and Stamp Kissing".  This is a Valentine card that I made yesterday, its a very simple design with a French feel to it.  I have stamped the background with the "Envelope Pattern"  in Worn Lipstick Distress ink and then stamped "The Old Letter " cling in Victorian Velvet on top.  I then distressed the edges.   The Lacy border is made using the " Lace Background " and stamped in black,  cut with a Martha Stewart Punch and then also distressed with Worn Lipstick.  The Hearts have been stamped and embossed with clear powder.
This card is also for the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room Blog, which is called "Sweet Hearts"

I also want to share with you this beautiful birthday card from lovely Sanne in Denmark , isn't it stunning!! I was so thrilled to receive it, Sanne has been very busy lately, she was lucky enough to visit America for CHA check out her blog to see her photos !
Well another week and more cards to make, I have a few orders from work to complete so busy, busy, busy.  :0)
