Happy Valentine's Day!

The challenge at Paper Sundaes this week (#54) is Valentine's! Perfect, as I need to make a few of those! I was digging around again in my stash of stamped images and pulled out this adorable Ketto from Stamping Bella. (Though this makes the card-making process faster in a way, it isn't helping me get at the sad pile of in-inked rubber - maybe next week I'll aim to use brand new stamps on each card I make....) Anyhow, I thought she would work perfectly with the papers I already had out as well as for he Valentine theme....

This card is also for Bellarific Fridays - where this week's theme is also Valentine's! I have a fabulous collection of Bella stamps that do not see nearly enough ink and many weeks I tell myself I'm going to play along but run out of time - well this week I was determined to make the deadline, so here is my card! :)

This card came together quickly using a design I have used many times before - I cannot give credit to whoever came up with the original sketch and I"m not sure how close it is to the original at this point as I cannot remember where it came from, however, I love using this type of desgin when I want to put a card together rather quickly and use a "plainish" pp for the base so that I can stamp directly on the paper.

Also, I wanted to share something for those of you who are into fun and funky handbags, especially if you like handmade stuff - my co-worker Nadine has some super fun stuff in her Etsy - The Sea Within. If you are into bags, you don't want to miss this! I just dropped over there to link up and noticed she has added a whole bunch of new stuff since my last visit - happy shopping!

Hope you are having a fabulous day, it's almost the weekend!
Shanna :)

What I used:
