Meant to Be

Saturday, 9 February 2013
Happy Saturday to everyone! I hope it is good where ever you are.  It's a bit wet and cold here and we've had some sleet, but hopefully no snow.

I am starting to make a bit of headway into regaining my craftyness and am making some cards and other bits.  I even have one to show you today!

This is my Valentine's card for Jon.  I love this image, it's so sweet but it was also the name of it that made be buy it. It's called Meant to Be.  Jon and I have been together 10 years this month and he always says that we were meant to be. I've known Jon 16 years now and there was an incident 16 years ago where Jon ended up waiting with me for my dad to arrive, to make sure I got home safely.  He told me once we were together that he felt that evening that that wasn't the end of things for us.  We weren't together at that time, but he was looking after me.  Anyway, enough waffle!


I hate to admit that I have had this stamp nearly a year and it's the first time it's been used!  The papers I also purchased last year and are a First Edition pad called Love Letters.  I actually chose the papers before I coloured the image, which never happens!

The little lads hairs is based on Jon's own reddish brown hair.  It's not perfect, but as you know, I don't normally colour humans, normally bears!  I'm trying to do new things!


I'm going to enter this card into a few challenges:

Sketch n Stash - Neglected stash - Stamp and papers
Lili's Little Fairies - A Touch of Romance
Totally Papercrafts - Valentine or Love
Cute Card Thursday - Love Struck!
Without Words - I Love to Love
Raise the Bar - A Couple of Things

I will try and get round to doing some blog hopping this evening.  My parents are here at the moment so can't be rude!

Have a good evening.  Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your comments especially with my lack of cards/comments over the past 12 months.

  1. GREAT to see you creating cards again Sarah - you have been MISSED!

    LOVE your Valentine's Day card - stunning!

    I have uninked stamps too but I have been making a big effort to 'shop my stash' in the past year rather than getting too much new stuff. Makes me feel a whole lot better :-)
