Basic Grey Valentine!!!

I am a huge fan of the work of Nancy Riley and fell in love with this card HERE as soon as I saw it. It is just so pretty.
I have used it as inspiration for the card above.
Paper is Basic Grey and the heart stamp is by Woodware from a set of clear stamps.
The heart was stamped onto paper, highlighted with a white gel pen and embellished with tiny self adhesive pearls.
A very different look to Nancy's card but I am very pleased with it.

For various reasons I have had to spend the day quietly today and have had a lovely day up in my room just snuggled up and making cards. No music, no rush, just a nice relaxed last day before going back to work tomorrow.
I'm not sure I am ready to face going out into the early morning cold and not being warm again until I get home and DD being at home for three weeks is another reason I would like to be at home for longer but I need to earn my living so I'll be up and out in the morning along with anyone else going back tomorrow for the first time since Christmas.

Got to go and sort out some clothes that look as if I belong to the human race and not some sub species grotting about in ink and glue patterned trackie bottoms and baggy t shirt which is my at home work wear. Hope I don't have to get the iron out.........that would be just a push too to break myself in!!!

Bye for now
