Very Special Valentine.......

Another preview for Waltzingmouse Stamps Valentine set, following today's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers!! I love this valentine - just a little different and quite a colourful one at that! 

I inked up the Very Vintage Labels No. 4 frame with Spring Rain ink and stamped it onto white cardstock.

Then I stamped only the top and bottom part of the sentiment-- leaving the words "very special" inkless--  with Vivid Straw ink and stamped it into the middle of the frame.

Using one of my Versamagic chalk teardrop red inks (so easy to manipulate that small size!) I inked up the "very special" and lined up the sentiment to stamp it in place!

I stamped each size of heart - small, medium and large with all three colours of inks and then proceeded to spend the better part of the afternoon deciding which heart colour should go where - I am so undecided that way lol! But I think I made the right choice!

Are you ready for New Year's Eve?!! We are having our family over, fighting for kitchen space

and bar-b-queing steak and potatoes - yes we are crazy being as it will be 0 degrees outside - but there is nothing better than bar-b-que in the middle of winter!! (Easy for me to say - I won't be the one freezing my better parts off lol!)

I would just like to thank each and everyone of you for making my year so wonderful and bright!! I love to stamp and show my stuff and I am so happy that you like to come and see it! 

Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve - travel safe and see you next year!!
