Penny Black Challenge - Romance

I made this card to join in the new Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week their theme is Romance. I just love this sweet stamp. I made this card for a special friend. I had fun using my Mum's nestabilities and her punches. The cute Best of Friends stamp is a 99p stamp by Smirk. My Mum did help me with the design and piecing my card together. The gorgeous papers I pinched from Mum's stash and were kindly sent to her from her friend Karin.

Now I will show you some gorgeous cards and gifts I received over the last couple of days.
This beautiful card is from Debbie. Hannah and Debbie sent me loads of cute Smirk products earlier in the week which I just love. You can see some of the Smirk used on my Crafty Monkey's card on my earlier post.
I received this card from Caz with some sweet Panda images. Thank you so much Caz for your gorgeous card and Mum and I can't wait to see you again in April at Ally Pally.

We received a wonderful Valentines package from Karin, Ruby and Britt. This package contained so many wonderful goodies and gorgeous cards Karin had made for Danni and I. She also made my Mum a beautiful gift set containing lots of Valentine stash. Thank you so much and we loved the Smoeltjes!

I am going to start designing my party invitations today using some of the Smirk papers and stamps.

Have a fun Sunday.
